What is life without dreams? Dreams need time to grow. Some dreams will only come true, "if you win the lottery".  Other dreams must come true, and as any long journey, it starts with the first step and this is were we are right now. We have both been on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah USA and have got     "The salt fever"

To be a part of the Bonneville history would be great!
For us, the solution was just to the right leg - to drive an old Harley Davidson Knucklehead.

Johns "knuckle" a 1690cc from 1937and Toms "knuckle" a 1350 cc from 1941.

We will ride with pride and want to show the Danish flag. If we shall compeat with the Americans in their own backyard, it requires that we build an extremely potent motorcycle (then your might think, "aint that expensive")

Yeaaar you're right!!

But this is where you can help us with your goodwill and sponsorship.

Bonneville is a dream that startet more than 15 years ago, a friend from Norway Gard Solberg did the drawings off my salt racer.

 

 

 

In 2010 I was at Bub speedtrails at the Salt Flats, I was lucky to be invited to the Danish Vincent Viking team, and it was great to be in the middle of something so big as setting a world record.

Lars from Denmark on his 600 ccm Indian with a blower  was on Bonneville too and I helped him with a couple of things when he needed it.


I am learning, if you want to build the perfect Bonneville racer you need a lot of people with know how and how important it is to tell about the project to get help and sponsor support.     tn_P8290131.JPG

We are still in the early state off exposing our self. Because the bike is in exploded view, but there will be pictures on our blog as we build along.
