Good Sunday Morning to all the Gearheads on site today.
Most folks think of Karata as a Harley Beltdrive company.
Wrong.... My LTD has a Karata lockup clutch installed and Karata was deeply invested with the Kawasaki crowd
BACK IN THE DAY

So take a look here at the Karatasaki Top Fueler
Bad Ass Machine
Have a great day

Hold on to your hats Guys

Here are to pictures I took down south at a Dragstrip which was having a big event.
So of course the Top Fuel Harleys were racing and so comes the HD Clubs to watch ..
I saw this chopper lead a group in and just had to take its picture
It was ridden by a huge man ( Im sure his club name was Tiny ) and the fork tubes were deflecting like a banjo string
So anyway. Just goes to show you that you never have seen it all ...
I have some closeups somewhere that show stress cracks on the tubes
This is a real death trap
Enjoy
Dave

Well, 7-8s back in the day wasn't too shabby either.

Considering the top fuellers then were running the low 6's...

I guess our shorts looked that way then because we pulled the damn things up?

We also liked to keep our undies private..... and still do...
