Final details on Sportster land speed bike

Breather for oil tank.

Pingel fuel valve.

Custom pegs machined by Danny, custom foot control, brake cylinder
is from Honda dirt bike.

All axle sliders, plates,end caps and spacers machined by us,
along with the entire rigid rear tube subframe.  (still need to get a good pic of that).
The brake slider was also hand fabbed, the caliper is 1980 Sportster, wheel is
from Fatboy, holes enlarged to 7/16" each side, and rotor and sprocket
were machined to fit.

The exhaust sits where the turbo should have- when we add that Garrett GT15,
the exhaust will move to the other side.


Some close-up Sportster shots

Seat made by us- it's super comfy  :-)

The fairing had to be notched for the air cleaner.

The tank "shell" flips up to reveal the tiny fuel cell.

Danny hand fabbed all the fender mounts.

The stingray-esque bat wings on the front windscreen-  It's all one piece,
so it takes some creative movements to get it off without disassembling
the entire frontend!

The bag actually holds about 6 quarts of oil!  We were worried
since we had to make it single sided so the turbo would have room
on the other side.

Time for a Sportster update

"Silver Fox II" version 1 is finished-  no turbo, and using the engine out of the '72/75, but it is complete and ready to race.  STILL undecided on whether we will make the Spet/Oct makeup for the SCTA Speed Week at Bonneville.  Otherwise, it's work on an engine build and turbo install and save our resources for next year!
