these are pics of the other dragbike i have,shown as it is now and what it was like and lastly the bike the original motor is in.i wouldn't mind putting another gs 550 back in it.i have a hilborn injection system i'd posssibly run on it,as i want to save the supercharger i have for another bike....





there is some cool footage of it on youtube(gavin sedall owner/rider).once again i can't post links just yet so search-"gavin sendall redwood road" gavin still holds the cc/db record 9.7 140mph set in 1989.yeah the video is late 80's if you didn't guess by the clothes..
this bike always looked such a handfull to ride-i think thats why i always liked it!

couple of pics of a seat i just did for a t120 cafe racer(it has a seriously built BRITECH motor) .
i did side panels as well but they have gone back to the owner as he's in a mad rush to get it built up for the barry sheene memorial next month.
