Update! From our old friend Stuman! AKA Mike 'Stu' Stuhler. Check out his blog at http://stusshots.blogspot.com/
This is one of Ron Woods' projects. Matt Weidman tried to make the mile at Arizona back on 5/1 with this but missed the field. He's supposed to run it again on Saturday 10/9 and try to get it in the National again after Ron got the bugs worked out of it.
Very sweet looking machine! With the rules being 'opened up' in AMA Flat Track this year it has made for some very interesting combinations, as 12 different manufacturers and their respective models are available to race in the Grand National Expert Twins Class. Earlier this year not only did a Ducati 1098 win--at Arizona with Joe Kopp--but Bill Werner, Jay Springsteen and Bryan Smith took a Kawasaki 650 Ninja-based parallel twin to the win here at Indy and at Springfield. Jeremy Higgins put a KTM in the main at Minnesota a couple of weeks ago, and Triumph put together a nice package based on the 865 Bonneville and has made four mains this year.
Very cool stuff, and as always Steve, you have kept things on the cutting edge here man! Keep up the great work!
Awesome! Thanks for that!
I think I posted something on this bike a long while back but I'm not positive. Really excellent build. Your eyes are not playing tricks. The front shock mount is in fact on the rear of the cylinder. Bold stuff.
