update on Brittneys bike

Sorry for the lack of posts,  life has been pretty hectic.  We finished britts bike up a month ago, and had some complications with it and had to rebuild the motor to replace a faulty sprocket shaft.  We jumped through all of those hoops and have it runnign really well.  I have had it up to 65, and britt has had it up to 75,  I guess the 100 pound weight difference really has an affect.   Here is a pic of britts bike at the Saint Paul Fairgrounds from this past weekend.

Here is a pic of Brittney riding her bike for the first time.  It really fits her perfectly.  The bike will be at Born free next week, and then she has an exhibition run with Jim Wall in Holyoke Colorado on July Fourth.  Try to make it out if you can.
 This last weekend we went to the Viking AMCA meet to hang out with some friends.  We ran into Frank from Strong arm sprays.  He is a great guy and is always helping out on some level or another with the AMCA.  His product is really good too. We use it for breaking rusty stuff loose and even as cutting fluid on the lathe.
We stayed with Kevin and Amy Baas while we were in town.  I am always amazed at how quickly their boys are growing. This is Mason, he is so cool.
I saw this really cool bsa bike while I was at the meet.  It is tricked out and looks like a lot of fun to ride.

and another shot of my beautiful wife.  This bike was easy to build, there really are not a lot of parts on it or things to worry about, like clutches, brakes, or electrics.  She will be racing it at wauseon and davenport, so please come out and see some cool 90 year old bikes in action.   If you cant make it to the races, there will be a feature on it in american iron magazine.
