I wanted to give a huge internerd hug to stig........you are a absolute gentleman......

Please post any pics of turn of the century pacers,this was a crazy beast and they rarely look like each other,i will be following either a bike or using several details from several to make this pacer

this is a later pacer,notice now they are one man and a roller mechanism is employed in case of "touchdown"..............there were alot of bad accidents before the roller bar came into use

Sometimes when you obtain something incredibly rare and focus incredibly hard............seemingly miracles can and often do happen.........yes im bragging.........i owned this motor 24 hrs and had been told the carburator is incredibly hard to find...........like it could take yrs to find.........less than 48 hrs later i had found the correct carb thru a bit of chance following a different lead...........and was given the opportunity to own it........and i took the offer


please feel free to post any information,leads,critique..........i have thick skin and i want to build this bike right

This is an ambitious build but if anyone can pull it off it's Adam...

What an incredible moment in history, anyone interested in "motor pacing" should check out the book "life in the slipstream: The story of Bobby Walthour Sr.". Can't recall the author right now but it's on Amazon. An amazing account of an often overlooked period of cycle racing lore. Talk about dare-devils....

Can't wait to see the pacer come together!
