    Group Bike Builds

    I was thinking it would be fun to start a group for locals that want to build custom bikes for the next Willow Race; we could work on our projects as a group or team and represent ourselves at the race. We could share ideas, options and resources; I have a few guys already for the team that have racing backgrounds.

    I am open for feedback on this subject.

    oops, sorry!

    Racing, I have a few friends that like going racing.

    How about an "open road" rally...say 100 miles long or so?

    What a great idea that is, CCC. Pooling resources and sharing ideas is one part, but getting together and tapping in to each other's enthusiasm for this is the best it gets. What a lot of fun and really, who cares who wins? Everybody wants to, of course, but taking part, building a better bike than the last one and having friends of like mind is a cool deal for sure. Maybe the Briggs boys will form their own team, too. A lot of good could come from this.

    I never said that the next SoCal race on Oct 22nd is going to be at
    Willow Springs. lol

    I like your team build idea.
    Your 4 stroke thumper race bike was a huge hit at Willow Springs and
    your chain coming off was a real disappointment. It would have been one
    **** of a finish in the Unlimited Gas class!

    I voted for your flat tracker in the PistonBikes.com bike show as it
    was not only built from scratch it was the most innovative entry
    there as well as being one of the best looking bikes of the day.

    Your engine is right at the 11 hp limit for the Gas Bike class.
    If you up the hp for the next race you will be in a very small and
    probably limited track time "UNLIMITED" class.


    I want to keep racing fun, affordable and safe and I can't afford
    to get the current insurance deal messed up by racing bikes that
    are more motorcycles than bicycles.

    You and your two boys racing is the demographic for the future of
    motorized bicycle racing.
    The high hp do anything to win crowd will be in a new trial "UNLIMITED" class,
    bikes like AGK's #81 20 hp 4 stroke and liveforphysics #100 eMotorcycle
    are the only ones I know about right now.

    The #1 rule is that motorized bicycle racing is going to be FUN.
