Had some of these stickers made from Birdsnest's design. Gotta say they turned out pretty awesome. If you're a member, pm me and I'll drop you a couple in the mail.

Very nice job, it IS a good look! I am interested.... Is there a 50/8 option? I could try for 60 on my 8" AllState w/ crap 10" gearing.... But I'll need to hit maybe 9,500 RPM or so , if 50/8 is not available? So I'm somewhat concerned...

With some of the new cylinder kits out, there might just be a 120/10 club. I can't imagine how much the annual dues would be to become an active member.

Up front the cost of the malossi cases plus a new top end every year.

Stella might look a bit funny with 8s. Then there is the gearing issue.

Will carrying two 8" spare tires onboard a P200 qualify for the club? What about one 8" as a spare and the other 8" on just the rear wheel?

First batch of stickers in the mail.

whodats: Still working out the details, but I'm reasonably sure we'd grant you an honorary membership for carrying a couple of 8" tires @ 60 mph on a P.

Goals!!!! But 60 on my 8's is likely impossible and would probably blow us both up, even if we had the courage.

I'll just admire you all from afar. Nice stickers!

What does the "go plaid" reference?

My Super won't do it but, if my gonads are big enough, the Allstate with the 177 may get there. We will see...

so what are the rules to join anyway? post up your feats of speed with a GPS screen shot? I have to start by finding the 8" bike, but I will end up joining at some point!

Thanks Mike, I got mine and a lovely pro job. But CLEARLY labeled "HONORARY" and so not really earned, though I am certainly honored. And could possibly flog the hotrod AllState all the way up there if I could just find several hundred more RPM or get proper gears. But I'll drag race you to 40 or maybe even 50 if I'm feeling brave, if you like?

I think I need to start a 50 on 10s group for senior ppl on sketchy bikes who always ride scared enough already!

I did go over 70 for a quite while with my ex 10" '64 V90 smallie and my 8" AllState, But that was in the back of my truck.

Blue is extremely honored to be part of this exclusive club and will do her best to keep up with the big boys.....WAIT FOR MEEEEEEEE!!!!

I'd try to go attach my new cool decal on my actual scooter right now, but the garage is -15 degrees and NOTHING sticks in this weather, except your sunglasses to your face!!

Thanks, SCG!!! Made my day 8)

And thanks, Swiss, for the "go plaid" vid link. I get it now.....

Got my membership stickers! Thanks SoCal!

Almost had an 8's project 74 super I took a look at in North Carolina on my way back up to NYC but it was a chopped up frame and everything was too far gone. Had to walk away from it.

I'll keep lookin'!

Out of curiosity, at what RPM with the standard gearing does an Allstate hit 60MPH? Has someone done the calculation (I am sure that it is somewhere on the forum!)

Pinasco 177, 24/24 carb, BGM fastflow fuel tap, exhaust from a Vespa TS, still running on points and 6V. Next upgrade is an electronic ignition.

Sweet, sounds like a winning combo. Upgraded suspension too I hope.[/quote]
