Speed-Bird Update

English Stephen's project is coming along nicely. These photos of his head should give some indication of how cool this bike is going to be. I suspect Lurker Tom might recognize that head.

That twin carb intake manifold is too rad. Below is an original catalog listing. Something tells me Stephen's intake was more than $12.15.

All he needs is a pair of 175/041 Amal TT's and he's good to go.

One of my favorite aspects of Stephen's approach to things is how meticulously he plans everything. The following is just an example. He and Flathead Rob share some personality traits in a serious way.

I can't wait to see more.

That head is beautiful. Can't wait to see it progress.

Those look suspiciously like blueprints for a girder front end.
