    The making of an ice racer #3 riVerRaT

    I'll start from the beginning, first there was a big bang, then the dinosaurs came died and turned into oil, then Arabs came.....j/k

    Seriously, I am doing pretty close to my dream build. Most likely by next year I will have the final components, but even the way it will sit now, it will be a top tier build. I would love to get it all together this weekend, but there is a lot of work ahead of me. I have just about all the pieces. Missing a Short track tank (on its way) and the shrouds (also on its way) Going to have to make some radiator brackets. Frame is powder coated, and a whole bunch of shiny new parts, plastic, seat cover, power valve motor, etc. Here are some pics I took tonight, and let's see how much I can get done this weekend. Hopefully she will at least be a roller with the stock tank. The one pic is the photoshop rendering of what I want it to look like.

    The motor is a big bore ESR with a power valve. Let's just say the seat says "310" just like some other "310's" I know.
    The front tire is a duro on a 10" rim. I accidentally ordered the wrong style and have been using it ever since. It works fine, just cuts through deep snow a little too much for my liking. The rubber is good and hard for holding screws in.

    Got a late start today for chores. I had to rebuild the front forks. I polished (well not real good, let's just say it's a racers shine) the two shocks and the top triple. I wanted to send them out to Gk, but ran out of money, and time. Will do it in the future. It's also not a "show" bike and will be raced hard. Pictured is the lonestar +1 swinger. About the only thing I am missing is a durablue axle for the rear, not sure if I can swing it this year. The stock axle with the spacers will work for me this year. I also mounted the billet foot pegs.

    Got my shrouds in today, and the short track tank, but the tank is in the post office still, didn't get the mail until it was too late. Anyway, I got plenty work to do. I also bought a SS bolt kit from alloyboltz, I will polish the ones that are most seen.
