    Pretty nice to sit in your own man cave surrounded by friends and just a few of your favorite motorcycles.

This car is a modified '52 Allard K2 painted by the famous artist Von Dutch. Known for painting customized cars and motorcycles. Leo Goff at the wheel and me navigating. If I remember right, Leo had built and installed a pretty hot 5.0 liter HO engine. Happy Days, like Richie and Fonsie.
    Leo will tell U that he likes to work on cool cars; but bikes are his first love. Fond memories of riding with Leo at one of the many car events we attended.

    Leo Goff Drag Racing Champion

    While Leo was visiting with his buddies, I wondered around the man cave looking at all the pics and plaques on the wall. Several were about Leo in his drag racing days. Those were in the 70ís and 80ís. Leo started as the builder and rider. As he gained girth, he passed off riding duties to others. As he developed the bike and it got much faster. Leoís team built the bike lower, slicker, faster. At the time his Norton was the only current British bike getting any recognition.

    They were serious about drag racing and winning. I think they were International Drag Bike Association champions for a couple of years back in the mid eighties. Leo built the engine, Ron Wiginton fabricated the Kawasaki transmission to fit the engine and frame, Eddie Wilbanks fabricated the frame. I think Allen fabbed up the top shell and fairing. I see Cyclear on the back of the body shell. All these guys have been featured on this thread.
    Good pic of Leo and his rider Allen Mueller.

    This bike ridden by one of Leoís buds got all the attention. Several of the guys took it for a spin. Man, it sounded as good as it looked.

    Leo, Allen, and Art. I think itís 1984. They finally achieved all their goals. Winning their class, rider of the year, motorcycle builder of the year. I think I showed up in 1985. 35 years ago, seems like yesterday. I like hanging with winners. ps my picture in the glass background taking a picture.

    Lester Wheel

    Iím all ways hanging out in the MOA Marketplace, looking around. Saw this Lester Wheel. Called Eugene and made a deal. Whatís it going on; donít know. Thinking about building a Beemer Hot Rod with some touring capability. 1000cc, dual plugged heads, big valve heads, 40mm Bings, 70hp. A kinda old school sleeper. It really donít matter, gotta couple of builds already in process ahead of it.
