Nice. Glad to see a classic bike being ridden. Especially ridden fast. Is the steering damper by Stortz? I was bidding on a set of those smoothbores for my Suzuki, but stopped when the price went over $100. They sold for a lot more.

Wimp. My 1979 Suzuki was the first bike I bought that didn't have a kickstart. All the two-stroke street bikes I owned before that had kickstarts and starters. They came in pretty handy with the weak batteries, alternators, and regulator/rectifiers they had.

Congrats Dnyce... always liked that bike



I was thinking.... might it help you when launching to lie down with your chest on the tank and use the passenger foot pegs instead? It would keep the wheel down...

You'd just need a shifter rod extension or modified 'rear'set of some sort.

I know the real drag bikes use a hand-controlled unit for shifting I think...
