Dime City Racers

I did not realize to what extent Scott Turner raced and the success Dime City Racers have had.    

 

 

This some of the awards he and Dime City Crew have won this YEAR! (actually these the last two weeks!)

Wow! a whole wall full of plaques, metals and trophies!  Next time you are visiting Dime City ask to see their trophy wall!

Dime City Report

      I just wanted to give a little love and a BIG “THUMBS UP” to the whole crew at Dime City Motorcycles and the race crew!   Not only did they do the entire safety wring on the Orange Bike, but actually saved the whole bike from becoming part of the towering inferno the hit the building next to World Famous Dime City race shop!

Shot of the race shop post fire…you cannot smell the smoke, but it is there!

     This is the second fire the boys have had in the race shop building in 3 weeks, the first burned the door on the shop and this one was in the business next door.      It seems that something in the paint shop at the cabinet maker next door caught fire.    Lucky for all, the race shop guys were still working after hours.       One the crew noticed the wall to the next building was a little warm and then noticed the SMOKE!    Of course at that time the only thing to do was yell “FIRE” and alert the Fire Department!  Which they did and the Largo Fire Department was there in under 4 minutes!

This is the wall next shared with cabinet maker next door.  The light you see at the top center of the photo is the hole the fire burned in the wall!  You can see they were lucky!

      At this point all the crew started to run, carry push  all 30 or so bikes across the street and put them safely into the Dime City Cycles warehouse.   I have it from my spies that Scotty Turner actually carried the Orange Bike personally on his back across the street to save it for the flames.   I don’t know if all this true, but that is what I heard!

The Orange Bike safe and sound in the Dime City warehouse where Scott Turner carried it!

Just to prove they are open for business, I bought these spiffy new racing boots for Bonneville!

     Dime City Cycle is still very much in business and shipping stuff for Café Racers and bike builders all over the world.      Nothing in their warehouse was damaged, which is good.  So order stuff to your hearts content!

PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS:

The Buell Brother and Sisters have a bike at the Bonneville every year and invites new people to ride and experience Bonneville at speed on REAL bike.
Now you can help The Buell Brothers Bonneville Experience Bike:

She is completely disassembled and ready for sand blasting, cleaning, painting, PowderCoat, chain drive conversion, fork seals, neck bearings, cables, and a stand- alone engine harness for the injection. Years of Salt Flats racing have taken a toll. If you or your company have anything to help with parts or $$ $$, we will share it with the world. And remember, this bike is dedicated to give new comers the chance to experience racing.

Folks ask all the time why we have to rebuild the Salt Flats race bike so often. This is what happens when a bike is only pressure washed and put to bed for a few seasons!

Want to help, well here you go click here and your T-shirt!

Race and display trailer

We worked this Saturday on the race, display trailer what did you do?

The trailer was originally designed as “roach coach” to serve food and had this gosh awful   7 foot by 4 foot BIG window on the side so people could step up and order food.    I looked ugly and totally screwed up our ad space for our Sponsors.    So, it had to be cleaned up!

 

  

Our mission was to strip down the old cladding on the trailer, .0.40 Aluminum skin and then  cover and replace the window with solid sheet, smooth clean sheet.  This was our mission and I think we achieved it!

The day went pretty well stripping, cutting welding and drilling screws all day.  Did I mention it is Florida, and everyone ( except us) know every afternoon it rains.     So we did have to put up with getting wet a little and it did delay the project for hour or two.

The usual cast of workers Ray, Rev Jim and Terry
