|The Badger in it's original street trim.|
The badger project is the brainchild of Leon Stanley, of Trenton NJ. The original concept was to take an old left over parts bike and hot-rod it for racing, yet make it street legal. In theory you could ride it to the track, race it and ride it home - just like guys did back in the 50's. A cool concept in my opinion, though back in the 50's guys were racing local tracks against other bikes of the same era. In this day and age, in order to compete in a vintage race you may need to travel 800 miles or more if you live on the east coast. Not an easy feat. Reality set in on the Badgers maiden voyage to Ohio. Riding the Enfield out the PA turnpike was grueling. The bikes concept shifted to an all around bike that could be raced in all categories of vintage competition, while remaining a daily rider in the interim.

It's mission is always changing. The result? A lot of fun.
