Re: 1936 92 ci VL

I like it. I can imagine the difficulties in finding the right length rods and pistons to work in VL cases at that stroke. Any special oiling and breather modifications to make it work?

You think the stroke was tough, how about this? -- Turk

I am truly blown away! That is quite a piece of engineering. You must have a few hours into this old girl. The question I would like to know is how fast does it go?, and how quickly does it get there?

What a stupid useless unrideable waste of time! Just get over your obsession with choppers. Everything has been done before!

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

When I saw the pic with the blower, my first thought was you were a little "touched" in the noggin Turk. If you tell me you have been over the ton on this machine, I'm sure nuts, or wacko, would be a better description. I would love to hear the beast run, ride it, and/or ride alongside for a while. Do you put any serious miles on it? Choppers are fun.

at the risk of being a party pooper, where's the charging system?

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

You'll have to keep us appraised at your attempt at having the world's fastest VL. Does anybody know what the current record is? And for that matter does anybody know what the current UL speed record is?

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

1948: I think the currant ul record is around 148 or so fuel unblown by Paul Feibus (sp) David Pilgram has the ul turbo record at about the same speed, I think he runs alcohol. Dale Walksler runs a VL at Maxon I'll call dale tomorrow and see how fast he's went. Back in 1935 or 36 The California highway patrol tested about 40 VL's at the same time at 100 or over to pass purchase qualification. Steve Slocum in England has some CHP replicas for sale guaranteed to go 100 mph stone stock . Mine should run about 120 without the blower 150 with---time will tell---cant brag till you dunnit.

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

I believe Paul's UL record is currently 150 and change. He's also working on a blown unit, turbo in his case.
Way to go Turk, beautiful piece of work.

Since you are not intimidated, you may consider what your opinions are before they spue from your mouth to your finger tips. You comment was purely insulting. It was far from an opinion. If you do not like the bike, it is easy enough to just state that, rather than attack the builder with insults. As for you comment about me, I refuse to grow up. I happen to be the bigger kid on this playground and if you piss me off again, you will have to find yourself another playground to play on.

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

.........coming back onto Planet Earth for a while, I'm also a bit puzzled by the bike. There seems to have been a great deal of time, effort and money spent on an engine which is then mounted in a frame with radical steering angle mods, hugely extended springers, forward footrests and all the "chopper" style. To be honest, it doesn't LOOK like a serious race-bike at all.

I'd be curious to know more about the whole Maxton/records thing, because there seems to be quite a story here?

Re: 1936 92 ci VL

A new location in Ohio has been secured and run beginning last year in Wilmington, Ohio, a couple of hours from the house. DHL had a hub there and moved out and they have use of one of their old runways. Great location.
The Maxton course has been abandoned due to condition of the runway although the run logs and records should still be available through their site:
www.ecta-lsr.com
The VL is a project of a friend of Dale's and i believe he made his best run at the 1.5 mile track in Maine, breaking the ton. He's using a UL/H top end with aluminum heads with reworked chambers, inlets, and a later 4 speed trans.
I hope to put my WLA/K down the track again this year. I sold a speed twin to my previous rider so we can go head to head in the same class when he's ready.
