Build up means

Easy -- it means you need stronger engines and transmissions . But how do you make your engines and transmissions any stronger? That'* the real question !!


Bonnevilles were designed to be pushed and it'* great fun to push any car a little harder than the designers intended (but sometimes it'* too much fun :( -- I've had motorcycles in pieces laid up for years and ploddingly kept working on them when I should have been out RIDING!)

Given the members you mentioned, no one (with the possible exception of Bill Buttermore, I think) could be putting your engines (and trannies) back together any better.


(The other question is where would we all be if we didn't have you guys going through so many motors and teaching us how to fix ours? ) Thanks!!

Luck!!
