I’ll be honest when I started this project I just wanted to transfer the burning desire I had in my mind into something tangible and material.

      The silence comes from finding a starting point, all it takes is a few of the right parts for the right price.


     I loaded up the bike and headed out to some backroads near my house, strapped on an old helmet that I relined, fueled it up with a concoction of methanol and nitromethane and just let it go. It reminded a lot of testing the KTM land speed racer, the smell, the sound and the feel of being aboard a 66 year old machine was something else. I tried launching it in first gear but the clutch would nip up pretty damn quickly, I figured second would be faster and slowly gained confidence in its ability, it was fast!

   Wanted to feature this very cool drag racing T100 because it's so cool and I can only imagine how ''fun'' it is... And because wtf not.  ''Who knew'' you can do so much with so little, right ?!
