1. Sorry for any interruption today/tomorrow. We'll be upgrading the site software. The usability will be very similar, as it's just an upgraded version of the same software. It's a necessary upgrade for security purposes. The exact timing is a little uncertain as there are a few moving parts. The most likely time that we will be taking the site down will be Wed 6/3 around 9am EST. The upgrade should take 2-3 hours. Thanks for your patience through the update.

    GC 160's only make about 5 HP and I thought that you had a
    Quenton hopped up motor that makes about 10 HP? :D

    The bike you gotta watch out for is msrfan on his 5 hp Briggs!

    Are you going to make this race? It's only 20 days to go.

    I have no idea how much HP my engine makes. Quenton asked me if I wanted anything done to the stock engine. I said yes, do whatever you can to make it faster and he did.
    When I got the bike together and took it on its maiden voyage it blew my mind. I've owned three Whizzers in my life and this one is by far the fastest. At full throttle it continues to make power and just goes faster until I start having sphincter problems. It starts to pucker up if you catch my drift. I had a motorcycle that caused that problem too until I raced it at Willow Springs. Racing fixes all that. I just want to win.
    My bike is in pieces right now. I screwed up my pipe trying to bend it. I still need to redo my seat and de-bling it before I can race.
    I don't think I'll make this race as a rider but I think I can show up as a spectator and check out the competition. I’ve always had a passion for road racing bikes so if I show up it might give me the boost I need to get it all back together. 20 Days is enough time to get the work done but it all has a price and the money is coming slow. Hope to see you all at the race.

    Looks good Jeff but I see two different bikes. I can't wait to see what the build looks like when finished.

    Yo Neil, I went on a 3 mile ride to work last week and still in pain. I'm still going to the chiropractor and if I do go I'll probably do what I did at the last race, just cruise the heats but not race the finals. I'm scheduled to work that day so I have to decide work or play in pain.

    Damn! it's only 16 days to the Saturday June 2nd SoCal Motor Bicycle Race.
    Are you ready? :D
    I talked to Dave Rust today at www.ArrowMotorizedCycles.com and he is really
    busy building motors for the race.
    If Dave gets some time he may make some more of those very cool trophies.

    Lots of low pressure fun in the < 50 cc class for any riders that
    want to try out the track experience.

    Here is a pic from April 7th of strotter and one of his sons running
    Honda GX 35 cc Golden Eagle belt drives aka GEBE

    I'm there Strotter. I'm trying a mini-electric this time. The hub motor is smaller than a nuvinci, called a 'Cute' motor, honest. If I'm to podium with this setup, it'll be due to my pedalling! What about getting the <50cc gang to go for a 50' pedal 1st start?

    Only 11 days to go......and more like 10 days because showing up
    on Friday after 5pm is the way to go.
    After 5pm on Friday there will be no additional charges from Grange
    and we get to party and get up early Saturday to practice on the track
    at 7am.

    How do you like the logo?
