Finially got around to creating a video of the entire build of the Dixie Flyer. Thanks to Board Track Racer video of his build, I was inspired to put together most of the pictures from the build into this video you can find on YouTube.

Sorry for the sound track, YouTube disable my original score so I had to swap it with a track thay had on file.
Got a chance to attend the annual Antique Motorcycle held at the Denton Farmpark in Denton NC. It was a great event with tons of interest in the Dixie Flyer. I'll start a new thread and add photos of some very neat bikes we there. Here is a YouTube video of a quick ride at the park.

Mike I just found this thread, I am taken back and how Beautiful that bike turned out. What a vision for the year 1911 it is perfect. I am a mechanic in a park shop, and a former motorcycle mechanic, so I have alway loved two wheeled machines. I had the fortune to ride a Pierce Arrow many years ago and never got over it. I have a vision for a bike to ride and enjoy the time travel, you have the machine to do it on. I have some old Walbro carbs that would look nice on that engine, we have trouble with those new fangled things, with no adjustments, keep an eye out for one I think you will like the look and the way it will run. They were found on the small 70's Kohler engines. Have fun, Dave
Just saw the You Tube clip, looks like you had a real nice time. "Have fun!, you earned it"
I read through this build and video on Youtube.. What a awesome job..
I am stuck here studying your kick starter.. with questions on my mind.. How did you attach freewheel onto 3/4" shaft? Or what parts did you use to make it all work?
I understand partial sprocket and other.. it just attaching that freewheel is what got me..
Awesome build! Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the Healey link. My first car in the 1960's was a used Austin Healey 3000 roadster. I loved that car and still fifty years later find myself dreaming it, riding along with the wind in my hair and a big smile... then awaken to being an old fellow and knowing my Healey is long gone. Mine had the same wood and aluminum steering wheel, red with a silver racing stripe up the hood, black and red upholstery and a white tonneau cover. It had such beautiful lines...
I remember seeing vids on your bike on Utube. Excellent job!
A quick glance at vrgt2003’s profile shows he hasn’t been here in a little over 4 years...
It is a nice bike though!
Yes, it is very clean and 'simple' bike.. not so clutter-ly..
