P-40 Bike
by Bill Armstrong

I would like to take the time to thank you for an excellent website. Since I have been a kid I have been an aircraft enthusiast, I guess since my Grandfather flew Navy in WWII (F-4U Corsairs). My other passion is racing motorcycles. I made the decision to race America's sportbike, the Buell XB9R for 2005 and wanted to paint my American V-Twin with a different paint scheme. Since the performance of the XB9R can be compared to the Curtiss P-40 I decided to use the same scheme. Your website provided many photos and information that proved to be helpful. I also live 10 minutes away from an airworthy P-40 that makes a number of flights in the spring and summer right over my house.
