    samford&son and I rode our race bikes to the Adams Avenue Donut Shop/Car Show Saturday. There was a lot of vehicles we've never seen. It never amazes me what people will bring to this event. Yes, that's a Ferris Wheel seat with two old timers sitting in it.

    The Ferris Wheel seat needs wheels and an engine. I saw a motorized recliner at an airshow once. It was cool.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I really like that #11 cruiser in the OP (original post). I wish to know more.

    *edit* and by the way, I'm extremely envious of that black bike in the first picture. It's just beautiful. I'd park that in my living room every night and fall asleep at night thinking about it.

    Thanks baird, I decided to bend up some cranks instead of using shorter ones. We missed you this morning, lots of cool stuff there.

    i'm modifying a sbp expansion chamber to fit my backwards motor today, so i should be able to make it tomorrow. but that kinda depends on beer and a new girl i'm crushing on at the moment.

    i'll be there around 7-7:30 if i can...

    didn't make it. woke up early, turned the fuel on and watched it pour out of the carb overflow. i neglected to clean the mikuni out before putting it on the albatross.

    no big deal, took me 15 minutes to take it apart. on the road at 6:45.

    got to newland, passed edinger, at the top of the hill and my petcock broke of, spraying a half gallon of fuel all over me.

    pedaled home, and now i'm working on this mf'ing bike all day....

    Yes, the bikes with the number plates are 5hp Briggs flatheads. In stock form they outdo the chinese motors nicely, but we've been hard pressed to keep up with the heavily modified 2 strokes. We can usually out pull them but some have faster top ends. Luckily we race in different classes and have Scotto and Jeff with his son on their big hp 4 strokes to beat all but the electric bikes.
