Fuck - that story about Shaw is fucking awesome, Tommy.
Hmmm.....maybe a Simonini is in my future.
On an entirely different note, Andy claims that he has made the home made pipe to end all home mades. He's calling it the burrito pipe. It's on a totally stock PA50II. He ported it a little, opened the exhaust as much as he could, and thinks he's close to 50. No changing the carb, jetting, or whatever. Stock, 49cc piston, head all that.
I have yet to see it....but I really want to. Andy has been known to make crazy, dumb looking shit that goes fast as hell.
