Reading this, my curiosity got the best of me. Missed Wauseon but hope to run my Hummer racer at Davenport. What's the deal with the "Jap Crap" taking the trophy? Are the promoters changing the rules? Not enough Hummers showing up? A few years ago at Davenport, I asked Hummer racers if the would object to me running a BSA Bantam next year. The response I got made me fear for my life. I quickly hid behind my BSA 250 Flattracker until the heat went down. LOL!!! Anyway, sure would like to know what's going on. Don't even want to think about the money and time I've spent in the last year building what I thought might be a competitive bike. Now this? Or maybe I should start looking around for a Yamaha or Suzuki. (Just Kidding)

You should have brought that bike to Wauseon this year. The #00 bike did very well and the #65 bike did OK too, but the trophy went to a 2 cyl piece of Jap Crap (not fair completion IMO) We need some more serious competitors from the Milwaukee lightweights. There was even a 13 year old girl riding one in the class this year, we hope she stays with it and makes us proud!
Hello Fellow hummer enthusiasts ! I have a 1955 165 Flat Track race bike that I am making available to all you race fans and wanna-be's.
It is like new and has only been started a half dozen times. The motor was built by Stan Waite of the "Thunder Hummer" fame. Stan had built many of the race bike motors you will see at Davenport and the other race venues back east. It was built with the last of my NOS Puckett race parts and even has the extremely rare and impossible to find race gears. Comes with two sets of bars and several rear sprockets.
Don't miss out on another year of great fun racing ! Email me directly at
