I love the brake pedal or lack thereof.....
The ergonomically correct hand position the reversed handlebars put you in......
Not sure if that's the kick starter extended way past the engine there......
The Recaro racing seat.....
And it seems like that engine mounting side with its aerodynamically designed fuel cell and the upright vented exhaust pipe is sagging quite a bit.....id hate to see what would happen if that square edge tubing came into contact with some warm asphalt.

Agreed that is some "special" work, but before I could sign off on it being "fine hillbilly engineering," I'd need Vital's very own shine swilling, ornery, wizened old hillbilly to weigh in.

That's a decent first try. To big a hurry.

I would used a vacuum fuel pump off my mower and sourced vacuum in front of the reeds mounting the tank low.

Cut the pipe and rewelded to point rearward.

Is the tank just sitting there? You ain't had fun till gas is all over you.

And to be a real hillbilly, you need to be smoking a cigarette while the gas is all over you, or is that a redneck thing. I can’t remember anymore.

In 1985 we'd have killed to have that in the garage.....

Something is wrong about it. The slicks are a clue. Wouldn't you have put knobbies on it Dave? I mean, that thing ain't coming out of my mater patch with those tires. Useless at best. Probably fake.

Leave the front alone and put some Carlisle Strykers on the rear and it’s properly redneck fixed. Lol
