                                                              PROJECT 45

For the past several years I have wanted to get back in to motorcycle racing, as a part time deal. I have looked at the off-road racing arena, trying to decide what type of racing would suit me best at my age and the time I had to devote to it. Vintage racing seemed like the direction to go and dirt track racing an old flathead would be a real kick. So I started looking for an old H-D or Indian 45 to set up for racing. Unfortunately, everything looked a bit pricey for what I am trying to achieve. I do not want  to purchase a restored bike and then tear it all apart. That would be a real disservice to an old restored classic. And the older "Bobbers" and builder bikes are just plain too much money for what you get in the deal. So I have decided to build my own. The picture you see is of a crankcase I bought through Ebay. A complete motorcycle will be built around it. The bike will be built from aftermarket parts, as well as Ebay and Swap Meet buys. I will post my progress on this project for those interested in following. It will be a fun project with a purpose and goal in mind.
