funny you should mention that. i planned on doing the exact thing, since it doesn't fit on any of my backwards engines.

i might show up to hang out with my friends, but i dunno how well my busted up body's gonna handle sitting in the sun all day. but i got a refill on my vicodin, so i'll probably be ok.

and as much as i know you'd like to, neil, don't come up and give me a friendly hug. my ribs can't take it.

Cool, while you at it you can bring all those bairdco racing motors that you were
building for PistonBikes too or are they all in your scrap pile?

I will note Fred's CR Machine intake manifold in the prize list for the 66 cc
Amateur Class so we can give prizes down to 9th place.

If you aren't coming please give to Dennis or someone who is.
thanks.

violates this rule "Race number requirements:
Front number plate with large easy to read block numbers."


i'm not picking on you guys at bigboy cycles, just pointing out how that violations can occur anywhere, and your's was the easiest example.



You are being rather small and petty and any rules we have aren't and
won't be enforced like that. :)

All I see is a very cool bike that the races were put on to showcase and
get together for a fun time.

Just for kickers I would like to remind you that you let ShuttleBuddy race their internal shifter 'motoped' in the mid 4stroke class. and they even used the gears 'only a little' you even gave them a trophy for placing in the top 3.

let the racers decide.

I never heard of a promoter changing established rules 3 days before a race other than for safety reasons. the only reason you gave is due to the looks.

Your statements are inaccurate.

ShuttleBuddy did NOT get a trophy in the Midrange Class.
The only trophy was for 1st place.

There was no trophy for 2nd in any of the classes or for
placing in the top 3.

They got a Joker Machine T shirt for coming in 2nd and they also
gave out a bunch of their ShuttleBuddy T Shirts as prizes to racers
in other classes!

ShuttleBuddy got a trophy in the 50 cc 4 Stroke Class for
winning the race fair and square on a 25 cc friction drive.

Here are the race results you are wrong about.

Shuttlebuddy contacted me on Facebook a few days before the Oct race
to say they were coming.

To be completed when I have the time. :)

You guys don't want a cut and weld garage that doesn't even own a pipe bender to take credit for a great idea and shoot it down 3 days before the race. Your all just jealous!
