Ohio USA,

is building a serious drag racing GT750....looks good too...


Specs: 

1974 GT750 L. engine and frame. 

Ported barrel with 38 mm Mikuni rounds 

Ignition: MSD Multi-channel total loss 

Custom flywheel and stock MSD triggers and trigger timing plate 

Timing is 23 degrees at idle retarding to 20 degrees at 9000 rpm 

Over rev limit set at 9500 rpm 

Stock water cooling system 

Pingel 3 x fuel petcock 

Motion Pro Coolant Overflow system 

Swing arm custom built using stock GT ends 

Rear wheel and brakes from ’78 GS 

Front forks, brakes/caliper is stock GT750 

Tach is Autometer Phantom II mini with shift light 

Kevin advised he made it out to the AMA Norwalk Fall Nationals during October 08. 

"My GT750 made it past tech inspection and I made several passes. 

Here are a few pics of the GT750 (the way it looked that weekend). I continue to make modifications to further reduce weight. 

Between the front rotor/caliper and battery change, I saved 21 lbs. 

I am starting a serious effort converting the head to a "squish" design. 

I made 3 passes, each one slightly better than the prior with the best pass at 12.83 sec/104.3 mph. 

I know thats not fast but it was a great shake down run and I had a blast."






Kevin has sent some more pics for 2010....
