Something Old / Something New for The Knuckledragger

This weekend I buttoned up the primary on the vintage style dragbike that I am building. Here are a few Pictures.

How is this for something old? I used these "lightened" clutch steels 24 years ago when I first started drag racing.

The clutch basket that I am using is not new by any means, but it is new to racing and the lightening holes are also new.

20 tooth motor sprocket and 80 pitch primary chain were normally used for sidecar service. Note lightening holes even in the tin primary covers.

Everything you see here is finished and ready to go. Final compression ratio is 12.83:1
