    Goldy, tell me about this bike please.

    It was built for a good friend as a tribute to the Flying Merkel 500 board track racer. Used an old 26" bicycle as a starting point, but not much left of the original bike. Stretched the frame by 5", fitted some new tubing and a lower engine loop. Runs a 5hp B&s engine with centrifugal clutch. The machine runs great, top speed about 70kph. Coaster brakes, decompressor, pedal start, fun to piss around on. Saw the real thing at Motorcyclepedia this June...not much difference. I posted the build on motorbyclicling.com under the DIY section:
