Looks like you might Burt Munro your right leg and turbo-burn your fly there bro!
Nothing like 1200 degrees between your legs to make you sweat:(

The header will be double wrapped with heat wrap, a turbo blanket will be added and a heat shield added to make sure no body parts can touch. I have a feeling it would be like a blow-torch other wise.

B U M P to help out!

I just learned of this project a few min ago...I sat here and went through ALL the pages just fascinated and awed with the ambition and creativity...and perhaps a bit of pride that our warrior is going to represent!!

I couldn't be HAPPIER to help sponsor this. I'll never do/need a project like this for myself, but I'm sure people thought the same of the Wright Brothers Project...you never know how tech trickles down!

I hope this post will help to BUMP awareness and more importantly, $money$ to help show that this matters to us. I spend more at the movie theater, and am frequently less entertained...

Members: if you find this interesting, and want to see this BEAST in action...throw some change towards 8pack's cause.

paypal $25 (or more!!) to : [email protected]

I just sent $30 to help buy whatever bolt, washer or dyno-seconds I'm sure will be needed.

goodluck.

The Mold....


Gelcoat in the mold getting ready for the goodies.



Fender is all molded up and curing. Note this is not a 5 minute job. Thanks for taking the time to build me a custom fender. It is going to look AWESOME!!!!!

Came to this site via a guy in town who is also a Warrior rider. Been gleaming the site occasionally for aftermarket and mod ideas, suggestions, etc since, just not a very vocal guy I guess. This project, however, definitely deserved a shout out. If it is ready for Bonneville by next year I may consider taking the trip in lieu of my tentative ride to Sturgis for the Rally.

I am getting very close to finishing the spaghetti portion of the exhaust. It is amazing how fast I am running out of room behind the rear engine. I have to finish welding the pipes for the wastegate, grind some welds, throw a coat of header paint on the exhaust and start working on the oil system after I get back home next week. I am starting to get excited about the day I turn the key, push the button and pray it starts:rolleyes:

I did manage to break away from the madness for a couple hours this week. I have the oil tank about 70% complete and the area behind the rear engine 175% full:eek: I still have to weld in a 3x4x6 drop in the oil tank for the oil pickup tube, weld in pipe fittings bungs for the oil fill/vent, oil return, oil pickup and turbo oil return. Ok maybe I am only 60% done with the oil tank:cool:
