    Hello to all I'm just an old gear head, well I feel old. I have been wanting to do a bike build for awhile and just finished my first one. The blue one is my other toy..... new bike.jpg bike engine.jpg Nova Pictures 005.JPG

    Howdy and welcome!! Nice look'n equipment there.....

    I've restored several Nova's ---- this was the last one. '74 Hatchback with a mildly bumped 350. Was actually a little old lady's car when I bought it. Really!

    (Sorry, picture is from before the digital age.)

    I sold it in '94. Bought it for $400 three years earlier, put about $800 in it, drove it for 3 years, and then sold it for $2850........that was good money back then! Wished I still had it. Would rather have one of these than a Camaro or Chevelle.

    Mine had more 'looks' than 'go'. Yours is in a complete different performance league!

    I remember when they were all over and cheap in the 80's.... not any more. That is why I did the bike, something to tinker with that makes more than 4mpg.

    Great looking bike.
    Do you know that they used to race motorized bikes in Tucson in the Kart track?

    would that be the F1 kart track? I put service in there before they opened and the owner let me take a few laps in a cart. That was like 13 years ago.
