    Has anyone here followed their dream

    The Shelbinator. 37 Shelby Y Frame Muscle Truck

    Well now that it is all over, I have had about 30 miles of saddle time according to my speedo. In all honesty, as cool as it looks, was not working for me ergonomically. it forced me so far back in saddle that the reach on pedals forced me to pull on handle bars too hard, thus moving them in...

    The Shelbinator. 37 Shelby Y Frame Muscle Truck

    Warning photo dump. Not sure which on I will use for final. The weather has been total crapola and has prevented me from getting video of chute in action. Perhaps it will give us a break next week for the OBC ride. Anyways, all wrapped up and no place to go.

    i actually moved to Colorado from Arizona, Lived in Tempe for 15 years. One of the first activities I got involved with was vintage snowmobile racing on a custom John Deere Liquifier I built. Grew up in PA, so I kind of new what I was getting into.
