Good News
« on: May 31, 2018, 05:55:25 pm »
Couple of days ago I found out that a major motorcycle manufacturer has decided to provide engines, electronics and most importantly engineering support for my newest LSR attempt. This is a fully enclosed streamliner that I've been working to get backing for a couple of years. Once the remaining financials are worked out construction will begin. That's expected to take 14 - 18 months followed by a year of testing before attempting the LSR.  :) :great: :great: :great: :great: :great: :great: :) .

Well I guess since you said you will be leaving (post on May 27) I don't
need to invite you to Maxum for the run there.

You know how many pictures we will be expecting in the build thread.......You might have to hire a documentary crew.
