Could you post some of the pics?quote:Originally posted by ROSKO
Lance's manx framed 883 is the ultimate harley racer. a jaw dropping beauty. I have photos of Lance racing the bike in 1966, cool as it gets. I can't imagine what one of his replicas would go for now...
I may have this book - I'll check when I get home....quote:Originally posted by texmawby
if i could find some i would. never felt at the time that i needed to archive my own pics. now it's too late. all the history is with his family. there was a book by mick walker or ian falloon called american roadracing motorcycles that featured lance's 60's racer on the inside cover......probably out of print now as i can't find it.

I have three featherbed Harleys
one with an 68 XLCH ironhead 883, 4LS front, 2LS rear, shouldered alloys, one off pipes, one off twin port spread bore intake progressively linked, ducati alternator off the end of the crank, open belt primary, and a few other touches
another which started as a plain 45 flathead, then had a stroker 45 magnum, but is now force fed flatty, has 42 mm Rf900 forks, Magnesium 12 spoke american racing wheels, one off belt drive primary
and another started with 72 Kick and Estart, Alloy tank and rump seat, some heavy duty Kraut forks and wheels from the early 50's (the tubes are 42mm and drums are 9") and some other stuff on it too.... it's just kinda mocked up and hasn't gotten much attention in a year or two
I dig the looks of the one originally posted but those tomahawk frames are amazingly heavy and amazingly flimsy
and that particular pipe is pretty miserable to tune if you really like one to run well
much better exhausts out there to be had even for the bolt on crowds
but it does look good
