Been working on replacing both rear quarters this week on a 68 Nova for a guy. Still ripping out the old and getting rid of rust. Coming along rather well….have all new metal so I’ll only have a few patches to make…if anyone gets a chance feel free to drop in and say hello. Have a good weekend.

When the small block Chevy V8 began to get popular and all of the car magazines were writing about how small, light and powerful it was for a car, EJ naturally thought it would be a perfect way to get horrendous power in a motorcycle. As he says:
Ignorance is a powerful tool if applied at the right time, even usually surpassing knowledge. Lots of times a guy will jump into a project without knowing how far he is into something way over his head until it’s almost too late to back off. This is a situation that I frequently wake up to in the middle of another adventure.
The first Chevy powered motorcycle EJ built was a wonder, the frame was heavily butchered modified Harley, square tube engine mounts, a Whizzer gas tank and a starter drive in the end of the crankshaft. A totally inadequate clutch was connected to a number 50 roller drive chain rated at 24 horsepower. Well, you have to start somewhere and it was a start.
