    We have brakes. New front tires. A driveshaft. Throttle linkage. And a trans that seems to function on jack stands Time to set the toe, run the valves again and drive it

    Let’s see the speed secrets you’ve been holding out on us....Deeper gears?Twice as many carbs?
    Hope you guys have had a good summer.

    Were you pedaling it a little there?It looked like your front end was rising and falling a bit like you were on and off the power just enough to keep a car length out on him.
