An outrageous plan, but one with definite appeal. For one thing, I hadn't roadraced in four years, and I missed it. I'd raced motorcycles on and off since '74, and the sights, sounds, smells and adrenaline rush of racing had somehow fused with my genetic makeup. Here was an ideal way to literally get back in the saddle. Plus, how tough could vintage competition be? Certainly not as nasty as the slam-fest production racing I'd done over the last decade.Yeah, I told Seaver, let's do it.So we dug in and went to work, me soliciting support from various aftermarket companies, Seaver and Bodden beginning to piece together the chassis kit (supplied by Henning) in Bodden's Alexandria, Virginia, workshop.
