paid and registered

coconut customs is officially registered to compete at the 2011 BUB Speed Trails this August. the bike will be in the 500cc A-AG class where the record is currently at 137.532mph, and has been standing since 1971; probably for a very good reason. 
i really don't think i have a snowball's chance but anything worth doing is never easy. the daunting task of bitch-slapping an antique to go 60mph faster than it was ever meant to go is compounded by a huge to-do list and a very tight budget.  

cripes, the bike alone needs enough work to keep me busy for the next 2 months. to add to the challenge, i need to persuade a 40 year old van to carry me to wendover and back; what the hell am i thinking? i really hope dylan comes along this time...
