This is Colten Korolewich from Beauséjour, Manitoba. He drives anything with wheels, tracks and a hull bottom. He is a pretty spectacular at doing those nasty high stunt jumps while hanging in the air as he twists his bike around and upside down in miraculous ways. He can be found at super nasty mud races on an ATV with ultra-aggressive tires that does fling mud.Add a comment
I was talking with Greg George a time ago. He’s the fellow helping me with graphics for my new Phazer hood product and he buys ET hoods from me and make them super neat-see blue hood. He said, “you know you should do something for those old SLs, SSs, SWs, SMs and GSs that look so boxy but everybody is using them for racing.”Add a comment
Dave Rand from Capitol Motosports in Winnipeg bought a couple of ice fenders from me several years ago. Just recently (Jan 2016) he called and ordered four more for his ice riding friends. Dave really likes these fenders. He says they are super rugged and last well in combat.Add a comment
I don’t have great leaps of progress to report but I wanted you to know something was happening. Here I’m prepping the base to support the superstructure. Next time you will see the superstructure skeleton. Work will slow because the wife has a bathroom project for me.
One of you guys said to allow for air scoops in my hood. Upon inspection, the vents around the steering console are exhausting vents primarily (I guess) to warm the driver. Until you-all say different, I will leave an opening in the rear but no scoops on the front side. 10-4.
Pull start flat track, mini bike racing is becoming more popular. Milwaukee’s Flatout Friday indoor race routinely fields 30 or so minis. Freddy Cuba has been putting on the Mini Bike Nationals in Hastings Nebraska for years. This year for the first time, a mini bike class is included in the Dice Brothers AMA flat racing schedule in St. Charles, Minnesota with three races.
More race promoters are including non-traditional classes in their programs and other promoters offer nothing but run-what-ya-brung classes. The nuttier racing is the more spectators eat it up. I mean, what flat track spectator wouldn’t enjoy watching high bar choppers trying to negotiate an 1/8th or ¼ mile track?
One of the classes almost always offered is the “stock” Sportster class. Most customers who are into this are using 883 and 1200 Evos. They order a front wheel conversion kit from me to use on the rear so they can get flat track tires (which only come in 19”) to handle the dirt tracks. Oh they’ll put on DT bars, bolt on some number plates and pull the silencers but that’s about it. Hooliganism is catching on in California, Inner mountain west, Texas and in the East.
