Assuming enthusiasm does not wane, several folks are planning a ~0830 departure from Silver lake on Sunday, 5/27.

It's a candy-assed route, Honda Ascot friendly, in which your sixth gear (if you have one) will get in some service. Make that plenty of service.
I'll be on the 690. Ascot starter parts just got here.
Also Picked up a little something tonight..

200 for now

Guy has had head gasket sealing issues. Runs a couple hours and blows the gasket. Gonna look at taking a light cut on all surfaces, and see what happens. If that fails, then I'm just gonna start with new chit.

It's got a fresh bore, and weisco pro-lite ~3 hours on it. Carb and such is stock from what I'm told.

BRAND NEW aftermarket radiators.

Racetec Gold Valves, and springs are new.

looks as if he tried to lower the compression with three base gaskets

teardown will begin tomorrow

Yeah, that don't sound good. He might have been lookin for some squish espace having put the wrong piston in it, or perhaps as a 'fix' to shaving a bit too much off the head/jug, or both. Maybe more likely, he was trying to salvage the head gasket, ey? Anyway, it looks like a cool bike. I've had both modern 200 and 220 and couldn't tell the diff. Don't know that I'd spend much getting that 20cc's.

Probably a little of all of it. Head IS a little warped. Gonna machine it today. Piston/cylinder look good.

was gonna say, don't cut the cylinder surfaces. head is warped.

OTOH, Thank you for removing the temptation! I really didn't need to buy another bike but I came close to pulling the trigger. bet it's an easy fix like that. get a head offa sleezebay if you have to cut a lot.
