    Doesn't look raked to me. I do think it is funny that the forks are on backwards.

    No rake Paps, the frame looks pretty good other than having the seat mounts removed.

    Front end will be the first thing to go and then I'll go from there.

    It will be a slow burn Mark, which will be a challenge for me as I like everything done yesterday as you know!!

    No races recently Mark but I am doing an historic time trial at Eddington in a couple of weeks.

    In the meantime I've put alloy rims on the bike and getting Velocity Stacks made and parts drilled.

    There is more to a velocity stack than meets the eye. I had to have one for my hot rod FXR. It looked great. One day I was running the bike to Wendover, Nevada. I put my feet on the forward controls and didn't realize that my thigh covered up the velocity stack and inadvertently chocked the motor. If that wasn't bad enough, The carb puked a ton a gasoline onto my bluejeans. With no place to stop and rinse off the gas, I ended up with a little chemical burn and I stunk of 91 grade petrol. Not my best run to Wendover for sure. Your 45 looks pretty dang cool
