Nice score. Don't be intimidated! Thats not an NHRA prostock!. It's a simple old school machine. Your lucky if was a turbo. This way you have lower comp. pistons and regular camshafts. The intake port are opened up on the head.
There the ebay cult guru oinkonajohnson guy that sells dragbike parts every day all day for th last 10 years.
Pull the head and see whats in there. 1220? would mean 1260cc's that was popular. I ran a 1260 alky turbo engine with 10:1 comp. pistons with Andrews 3X cams. shim on top buckets and 37.5 super pro mikuni's for 10 years ran 6.0's in the 1/8.
You got a great start there! just hope your top end is ok. If not, find a stock engine. Parts are plentiful for what you need.
clean it up and take some more pics with the body off.


Thanks! That is good info that I can use! Once I get the garage cleaned up some I will be able to tear into it more, I found a picture of a previous owner riding it at Speedworld too...

Thanks for the link...I actually prefer the one piece body, but this one is rough is putting it nicely...just depends on cost for me...I am hoping to get onto the track for $1750 or less, and I already picked up a V&H sidewinder for $180 shipped, so down to $1570 left

If the body is fiberglass it can be fixed. Fun too if you like working with your hands. Pics?

Thanks, it is fiberglass, but I am always fearful to try things the first time on something that I want to look semi decent

Do the back side first, you have to anyway. Like we say in building. Anything that can be done, can be undone. B)

Given the dyna s and dyna 3.0 coils that are on the bike, I just got a dyna 4000, what all would I need to complete that setup?
