Some shots of the twin near completion, I put the pictures up large so you can see some detail. The pictures dont do the detail justice.

    I always wondered if both tracks are under power through the corners or is there a clutch to disengage one?

    I love the detail and appreciate the hard work.
    Beautiful work. 
    Its amazing that there are a few who penalize this high level of skill and workmanship by jumping on the "over-restored" soap box.  This is the type of restoration that impresses me - keep going!!!

    I agree with TJ..This is my kind of resto. I love the detailed work and all the chrome and polished aluminum. Who doesn't like to look at that??  But on the other hand.....Original Race condition is awesome as well. I have both.
    Nice work Ramblinray!!!  Looking forward to more photos.

    Ray,  your work is outstanding! It looks fantastic. Like the polished, gold zinc plating and gloss black combo.

    Well, it's hard to imagine bashing something so painstakingly beautiful. This machine is pure eye candy and your work will be appreciated by virtually all that have ever even contemplated restoring any type of vintage machine. Photos are eagerly consumed by the eyes of vintage sledheads as quickly as you can post 'em, so please just keep them coming, Ramblinray. Excellent work, sir.

    this is the work of Kurt Krumm, He is co-owner of Goodwin Preformance. He was the guy who wrenched for Gregg whe he was the 91 WC, as well as Jeff Goodwin and many more who have won the world. there are a handfull of people that know twin trackers, His name is right up there whith Mouse and Brad Hulings. I cant take credit for anything going on here.

    I have the good fourtune of calling this guy one of my friends. This twin will shine but make no mistake not a single corner is being cut, Its being prepped as if Dale Loritz is gonna drive it. I t will be ready for any track.
