Each time I see a photo of the new rollbar brace position, the more I like it. I'm switching mine for sure!

Craig,

Your car looks great!  It will be interesting to see how your build goes with the painting done before the mechanicals.  I'mm sure you get a boost just looking at it.

Regards,
Chris

Looking good Craig. Now for the fun part, getting it together.  ;D ;D ;D


What's that, is that a knobby tire I see on the wall? Not another MX'er joining the Hurricane ranks is it?



I see you have the engine ready to go too. You'll be on the road before you know it. Good luck.

No not much of a mx guy do mostly off road racing ,got the car cause I thought it would a little e-zer on the body lol.....


LOL- yep, me too,  I raced for quite a few years. I started to find it hard to keep up with the younger guys, so I got back into cars. I still miss it though.  ;D ;D ;D  I still think about getting another bike just to do a little play riding.

Craig,  Your car looks really great..I'm thinkin maybe I should have had them paint mine too...O'well too late now.

I got mine down to the frame and have installed the brakes (repacted the wheel bearings), installed the pin drive adapters, ran the fuel line and installed the parking brake.  I'll finish up the brake lines and then start on the fuel tank. Make sure you fill the rearend with oil, they come bone dry.
Still waiting for my motor from Southern Automotive, I guess those guys down south in Georga work as slow as they talk, anyway it should be here soon.

Good luck with your build, Bill   ;D
The trouble with people is not that they don't know , but that they know so much that ain't so.
