...Think up stuff, make drawings of said stuff, make stuff, put said stuff together, start up the darn thing ... BRAAARP !'' Says Lars in his latest post on his Nimbus goes to The Bonneville Salt Flats Facebook Page.
But let's not go too far ahead without a proper introduction. Mr. Lars Nielsen, from Denmark, is in the process of building what is going to be the world’s fastest Nimbus motorcycle; Odin's Fury. Finally I pull the trigger on this subject; rode from work straight home today to ''take care of business''.
You see, this kind of articles I make from time to time are kind of a big thing for me, because I'm talking about some special people and their special projects. It can get a bit overwhelming for me, seriously.
Classic Chrome Radio
Odin's Fury will run on The Bonneville Salt Flats in the 750 APS-VBF class ( Max. 750 cc / Home-build frame / Partially Streamlined / Vintage / Blown /Fuel ).
Frame is Lars's own design that kinda cradles around the engine and gas tank. Made with 32 mm/4 mm pipe. The front fork comes off a Harley Davidson Sportster, (Future) modified Nimbus engine with AISIN supercharger from a Subaru Vivio, driven by cam-shaft. Keihin CV carb. And of course I loooove the zoomies !!!
The fairing is the most strike-looking, after the exhaust and it's an aftermarket piece for a MZ bike. Produced in Denmark sometime in the seventies. The tank come off some unknown moped. Home made seat.
It'll be a great day when we will finally see and hear this crazy Danish bike on the salt !
Untill then you can support Lars by getting a NIMBUS shirt. Contact him via Facebook, here. (I have to have mine, damn it ! )
Btw, you can enjoy the October Bonneville Speed Week in pics, here. Too bad the September 2016 finals have been canceled (via scta).
My glass is almost Jack'less (damn you evaporation ! :) ) and for now, I lay my tasks to rest.
Will update this great story as soon as Lars goes forward with the progress.
Taking my last zip while enjoying the NIMBUS sound...ahhhh, perfect !
