traction

Hi Ben If you want a seat like on my R1 I think Greg wants one so I could easily have 2 made.Maybe the rear tyre is too wide? Speedway use taller tyres for more traction. Sounds expensive to cut ,weld and straighten a frame.Do you have the mold for kermits seat/tank?

John Vevers

Does anybody remember when John Vevers brought a streamliner to the salt.? It only did 91mph. Why? I spoke to him . he said the streamliner did close to 200 in testing. Did it have any major problems? hope the memories are still good. Bones.
