Background

This project actually started life as an idea about 5 years ago! Running a street tyred bike in a Top Gas drag racing class was not getting me anywhere (and they wouldn't let me run in the Street class because my bike "looked like a Top Gas bike" - quote from 4 stroke riders and didn't like the 2 strokes beating them!)

The original concept was for a reverse cylinder RD400, but then the Cheetah motors came out from CPI - less effort involved for more power! Even though not aircooled, It was still RD based, so I went with it and ordered the required parts from Dan at Patriot Racing.

After one failed attempt to get a frame built I put placed another order in October '05 and finally took delivery in March '06. That was just the start of the hard work!
