    Praise for Dale Walker

    I just finished reading this thread. How cool that Dale Walker was really on it. Such a legend and drag racing hero. So down to earth too.

    He put on big valves and big cams, pistons that I sent him from MI (carbs too...), with Falicon out in FL, knife edging the crank. It was on my 900 Ninja back in the day. It was such a monster (to me), that hitting it in the top gears was giving me the pull that it did stock in lower gears.

    Dismantled it when I blew the motor up, but saved the motor for a future rebuild and transplant into my ZL900 that replaced it. Now after countless moves, I have to find it and hope my brother didn't throw it away. Most likely did. ...:(

    Cheers to you Dale, for doing such great things for the normal guys who never got to the track, but still wanted to have fun. I was always amazed at how down to earth and how much patience Dale had with the 1,001 questions I had.

    Cool ass dude!

    Thanks guys, I certainly appreciate the support through the years........... I try my best to help my customers as well as produce hand made well tested products. This is why I kept my company small.

    Ive been thinking about starting my drag race school again someday at the local track ............ we will see what happens, and if I have the energy.

    Have a good day

    DW :thumbsup:
