57 Kurtis Kraft Indy car.

Jack's P-51.

Jack Roush in his second P-51. Yes, he has two! I got the opportunity to tour his engine facilities a few years back. He was developing a roller rocker for the P-51's valve train. I think they said it added another 120hp to the huge engine. That would give it somewhere north of 1300hp!

Insane bike run.

VCA 2010 RACE RUN from changoman on Vimeo.

90cc racer.

I have been planning this since attending the Thunderdrome last summer. I am starting with some Honda S90 mechanicals and a Lifan 90cc engine. I will use the stamped steel Honda frame for a pattern while building a tube frame. My goal is to make the last Thunderdrome event this summer. I have started to rebuild the fork, laced the rear wheel and installed new wheel bearings.
Here are some pictures of some accumulated parts. The inspiration bike from Elsburg tuning is also pictured.
