They are all 5.7L Corvette motors !

Would I ride one ? No!

On the first ones they forgot to flash the ECM and burned brakes trying to hold back the bikes at a stop because the ECM though the default idle was with AC. LOL I found the same problem with a 1956 Bel Air and a 1957 Nomad wagon conversion I worked on in 1999/2000.

Cheers

im not riding any more - figure thats a sure way to die at my age and im hangin in for a bit yet if i can - with all digits and limbs still functioning save the arthritic restrictions , i did once and still dream of it from time to time , the triumph is long gone but there was a day when it was great fun , 

i cannot imagine a corvette engine in a trike let alone on two wheels but it would be fun to try it once , i suspect not happening in my lifetime yet a guy can dream , 

i need to think harder on getting to the range a few times this year - working at a gun club has its drawbacks - you watch others go shoot and wish you could join them , 
i do have a cowboy shoot coming in a couple weeks tho , need to shoot the ones ive not shot yet that i intend to use tho ...tomorrow - i get off at 3 and dont have to meet my daughter till 1830 so im thinking if weather cooperates a bit ill get that or part of that done , 

been reloading those cartridges that i was given but im not done yet , good thing i have so much stockpiled , i can get by and still have plenty for both major shoots im going to this summer , i just wish i had more time to play ,
