Greetings Mike, thank you for the kind review of the little rooster. I have been going to DDs the last few years and always have a great time, looking forward to racing this machine at DDs in 2013 in the Marty Tripes revenge.
My ole buddy Randy Lee and I tossed around this idea last April in Texas and the result turned out killer!! Just figured some would love it and others may not, but, it was a fun build and sure to get a few looks. Planning on going to EZ Jims next week and the race in Texas in November.
Gonna try to make n40...... guess I may be breaking my cz in at the races.......I'm sure it will be interesting. Only my second vintage race and second time on a vintage bike!! [well, since the 70's anyway!] Nothing like getting free riding lessons while learnin' the vintage thing! Hope the ahrma race will be a good place to race for a newb, even though I'll surely get my %#*@ handed to me!!! LOL Anyway thanks and looking forward to meeting you! Bubba

Well since so many of you asked me to update you on my injury when I got more info, I thought this might be the quickest way. (Particularly since I don't have many of your emails)I went to the ER yesterday and in addition to the ankle dislocation, turns out I have tibia/fibula fracture in 2 places as well. I see an Ortho tomorrow to see what the plan will be. Since I work in this world I'm pretty sure they will say surgery, so I plan on Doctor shopping a few times to see if I can find a more…See More
"Martin, did some rumaging around in the shed this morning. I found a couple of options for the transmission. I have a Sachs gear box, but it only has 32 nuetrals. That may fit. I also have one off a Royal Enfield project, but it may be too heavy and…"

"also...rod kits are the same from 80-85, but changed in 86.86-00 all use the same rod kit. yamaha changed crank part numbers for the 85 crank so if the rod kits are the same, then there will be a difference somewhere in either/both crank 1/2's."
