Tragedy struck bike drag racing veteran builder and tuner Dan “The Man” Wagner when his North Carolina race store burned to the bottom final month.
The fireplace seems to have began within the fridge of Wagner’s motorhome parked close by.
A very powerful and prevailing information is nobody was injured. The unlucky information is a number of bikes or Wagner and his prospects had been destroyed, together with 30-plus years of instruments and elements Wagner has assembled all through his profession.
One specific bike that we’ll miss dearly is the new-age turbo Humorous Bike that was ridden by greats Terry Schweigert, Chris Garner-Jones, and most lately Ronnie Procopio within the XDA. Cycledrag coated the brand new construct extensively when it was first created. Click on right here to learn the article.
The bike was impressed by a Cycledrag article from years earlier than, in 2015, asking specialists if a modern-day Humorous Bike may hit the fives? Learn that article right here.
Sadly nobody has but to hit the fives with mixture thus far, however clearly this staff was on the suitable path.
The legend of this bike will reside on perpetually and hopefully a brand new one could be constructed.
For those who can, please contribute to Wagner’s GoFundMe right here
