    Hey Matt,
    You should start a thread on the bike too!
    You're just about the luckiest guy I know,having both of those cool,V8 powered missiles in your garage!:)

    I want to commend your dedication for this build. I, like many have just read it for the first time.
    The Potter bike-seen him ride that thing at the Erie Colo dragstrip years ago. If I remember right he ran a street tire on back and would take it in to dealer for mileage warranty after a few passes.

    Keep up the great work you have going on!

    Awesome project!!! Try a smaller electrode like 1/16" in your tig torch, looks like your using a very large electrode which can make it more difficult to weld the thin steel pieces.

    Sorry I never got around to starting a thread in the EJ bike. The bike did end up going to the Concoursd'Elegance. Here are some picture from when we were working on it.

    Thanks a bunch for posting those Matt!

    That bike has been one of my favorites for years.The only thing I can't understand is,where did EJ find room on that bike to carry both himself,and the huge balls he must have had too!:D

    Great job on both the car and the bike,Man!
    Keep up the good work,and keep us posted please!

    I haven't had two much time to work on the roadster in the past couple of months, but I have been collecting some more parts for the project and re-making some small parts
