Get some air..

I had to drag the project outside, trying to figure exhaust lines , and seat. The working Headlight will be springer style, same as the racer, carbonfibre but painted black.
Most everything on this build is the best available except the gas tank , but i will run it until it cracks wide open and then adress the issues., Right now it´s wrong mounts and full of tank seal , so who knows, it may last for aweek or the whole summer.

Nice! 10.097.

Pistonhead Open 2, lot´s of teams and Top Doorslammers as well. Good show if the weather is cooperating, but no..not this time. Showers slowed down the pace and we got very few attempts, but..My first run was 10.097s, 213Km/h...and with  60 feet in 1.6375 I knew I could do better. But I managed to consume my chances on the only run on Saturday by loosing the gear shift pedal shaft, which basically is a 1/4 " precision bolt with a lock nut, which was... not a lock nut apparently..my fault. before i lost the pedal i recorded a 60 foot time of  1.6036 so only if..........:)

The Man, the myth, Tom Leret note the clamp on the   pipe, been like that since.....the 1970´s, something...just like his Nitro Sportster been running like a clock, always a good show.
Mr.Pihl and Crew, Debute for the new.. "Ford all the way"...
Dagfinn Eriksen, came out after a serious Overhaul, was only
supposed to check things over early spring time
when things got "Out of hand"........,
