1957 Harley Panhead #141 Burnout antique nationals 2015 drag race Shovelhead 2-1/2 day build
see what it takes to but a mock-up bike together in 2-1/2 days to go drag racing.
the bike has not run in at least 8 years and it was a chopper back then.
tatro machine rebuilt the topend on the stock 74ci motor and installed a Sifton 412 camshaft at the same time. the original owner put about 300 miles on it before it was involved in a mild crash. i purchased the pieces and it has been sitting until now.
i had 3 days until the 2015 antique nationals and needed something to drag race so this was the victim.
i lost the race by about a foot in the second round but that might have been because i only had 7 minuets sleep in 2 days.
no, it was because i wanted to run the bike as hard as it would go and not pussy out a stupid bracket race win. no speed, no fun.
at least it does good burnouts.
