I see it gets a bit complicated when the participants and bikes are not equal from the start.
BP and I are right on par with each other.
I've had a little motor engine experience, but we're both complete noobs with 2 strokes.
Also, I have very limited knowledge of disc brakes, and BP doesn't know much about drums. So, I took the bike with discs, and he got the drums
Trying to level the playing field as much as possible.

I think adding a weight reduction clause is a good idea for our competition.
Say, 1 point for every lb shaved?

We have also been discussing using WERA or some other vintage racing organization's guidelines for the build.
At least there's the possibility we might actually track race these things.
