    Dave, do you mmind if I take some inspiration from the mods you made to this block? Not that Lincolnstien isn't cool, you just made it cooler! I am thinking that it might not end up in a trike but possibly one of Mad Fabricators bellytanks.

    o.k. so, it seems that my photobucket is now working after almost 3 months of being not accessible. i spent the better part of 3 days drawing and machining the hubs for the wide five wheels. they're not quite finished but, i thought they looked pretty cool so i posted them.







    we'll see how long my access to photobucket lasts. LOL.

    hope you enjoy!

    Dang, and that shows you how much I have been out of touch these past three weeks... Dave! What an Awsome build!!! I am really excited to see your beautiful workmanship. The tranny is beautiful and the wheel machining is amazing, I can't wait to see what the rear end looks like when you get milled out in 3D.

    if you are going to run this bad boy at the salt flats it will need to have skinny firestones rather than sliks, but there is no saying that you can't run it both at the strip and on the lakes!?

    A note for the belly tank, By my layout, for a 36"x13'1" lightning tank, you will need to stretch the tank 12" to fit the V12 comfortably inside.

    Good to be back... Model On!
