Walt Siegl’s < Sordillo Salt Flat

Another Arthur bike. He picked up a set of 1950 pan cases with papers for cheap and we were planning to build a bike around a small motor  and run the bike in the 1200cc class at the salt flats. The original cases turned out to be cracked everywhere, so Arthur opted for a small engine build by the guru Andrew Rosa. The entire project turned out to be quite involved and therefore expensive and so Art threw out the plans to go to the flats. At least it turned out to be a interesting motorcycle. The truly difficult part of the build turned out to be working with a cardboard version of a square tank that Arthur made and wanted on the bike. Everything else about the bike had to answer that shape.  – Walt Siegl
