Just saw Spannerland on Cafe Racer. Impressive shop and idea. It's going to be interesting to see the finished bike.

Yeah, me too. Supposedly Chris' CNC lathe crashed and he's been trying to reboot it and get it going again. I'm coming back for a few days job and hope to make it by the shop on Saturday to see what's up and squeak a bit to keep progress going. The chain run is all on the CNC mill right Chris? Eh? Hmm?

Ooooohhhh! Autoerotic asphyxiation of the carburetors! Well, until Chris gets my bike back together we can't really run it. I got no wheels yet. He did order a whole slew of jets for testing the chokes of the FCR's. Once it's running that's the next step. We'll choke the spark right out of that bitch. So to speak.

I am anxiously waiting for the FCR choke solution guys...money in hand. I want to run these on my 07 SM and understand they do not fit with the velocity stacks. Chris was going to look into a different slanted filter for the one side so the gas tank would not hit...that would be a bonus...love the look of those orange stacks...:)

Yes, chokes are on the horizon. Once we have a running bike I'll leave my bike with Chris to work out the issues. We suspect it is related to float level and jet sizes so we're just going to have to spend time working through the options.

That said I texted Chris this week to let him know I was in town on a shoot and I'd be back again next week - a brutal schedule for me but one with a silver lining. Chris simply texted me back: "Bring your helmet next week"

Say what?

So I made a point of stopping by today as I drove from my shoot in PA to the airport in NYC. And here is what I found:





Mine and Tony's wheels are back from Woody's with a nice superlace to the Christini hub. The hub is slick and small and has the one way sprag clutch in it. I think it's a sprag - Chris can correct me if I'm wrong.



The chain line is in but adjustments will have to be made to some of the parts along the way that will conflict with the path of the housing. Chris has already worked that out but it's amazing the number of small things that have to reworked or changed for each change before it. It's exponential.



Chris machined a part to fit behind the rear cylinder that will serve as a base for the upper chain housing and the double sprocket axel that will receive the short chain run and send it on the long one to the gear box.



And here it is from above. A longer stud will replace the left rear cylinder head stud so that it can anchor there as well as below and the outboard end will have a bridge welded between the two frame tubes above the swingarm pivot.



Yes, the sprockets above were place holders. The real ones arrived while I was there - a bit more burly.



Chris hopes to test the bike next week without the chain enclosure to see what issues arise and what adjustments will need to be made before final machining. That's still pretty exciting. I'll try to borrow a goPro so we can get some video.




Finally the triples are mounted in place and shimmed out. They are a very burly and good looking set of parts. They make my faded pink upper tubes all the more sad. I need to fix that...

And that is it for now. Stay tuned.

Gregor

So close. Can't wait to see it.
Hey Sean,

Don't count on me for October. Even if we get the AWD done there's still the choke and then the matter of getting it across country in what will be decidedly cold weather. Still, at some point this winter it will make the trip.

Ow!?

Does that mean dropping the engine out and removing the rear pot to do that?

If so, what a pain!

Not sure yet. This is part of the process but if you're going to go down this road the engine is coming out regardless unless you plan to ride your bike to Chris' shop and drop it off. Honestly though, compared to machining the headstock, welding in a gearbox and the rest of the changes replacing a stud might not be the most involved part of the process. This isn't a small project!



Maybe if I can get Chris back on board with casting big bore cylinders it won't seem so troublesome!

Dropping an 950 engine won´t take long. And i even suck at this but manage to pull it off in fairly manners.

...and again Gregor, those photos and your writing. It´s pure pleasure to be along. The process and progress is equal in delight, if that makes sence.

regards from Denmark(world most happy people?)
