Whitewall tires?

Anyone have a source for whitewall tires? The wider the better -- I like the looks and am not worried about keeping it light or handling. The ones on there now are 2.75-18 front and 3.5-18 rear . . .

(they don't have to be actual whitewall, just white lettering . . .)

If you cannot get a title just throw some knobbies on it and have a blast on the logging roads and quad trails.

Engine's in

Put in allen heads for the case -- much easier to deal with and no more busted phillips screws:


Got the engine back in the frame and the wheels back on. Got the headlamps from an old forklift. I'm liking the Mad Max/Cafe Racer look . . .



The spacing in the rear hub doesn't look quite right -- I forgot to note down the order that the spacers/washers/etc went in, and now I know I did something wrong b'c the castle nut doesn't thread all the way down.




Anyone have pics of their rear axle set-ups so I can see where I went wrong? The manual doesn't help much . . .

From the picture it looks like you have the spacer on the wrong side, but that wheel doesn't look stock either. Just wondering how many teeth are on that rear sprocket, looks like it would be good for hillclimbing.

Here's a diagram.

I absolutely love the double caged headlights. Great job.

Here's a diagram of the rear wheel.

Since I'm having a tough time finding stator puller bolt I thought that someone here might know where I could get one. On the other hand, I'm also wondering if I could just get a bolt of the right thread and size to do the job. I've got three engines to work on and it might come in handy.

Splitting Crankcase

Hey JTN, great project!

I have a quick question.....

I am also in the process of a ground up rebuild of a 1970 CB175, I can't seem to split the crankcase.

Before I attack it with a chisel, I just wanted to confirm that there is nothing else holding it together.
I have flipped the motor and taken every bolt out of the bottom and stripped the right hand side completely, although have left the stator rotor attached on the left side.

Am I missing something or is that all I need to remove to split the case?

I have tried to upload pics but they keep failing. They are JPG format, 800 x 600 and under 146kb. Oh well, will try again later.

Thanks in advance,

Cibby.

Double check the bolts -- I've whaled away on some crankcases only to find a little 8mm holding tight. After that, whack the case (parallel to the parting line) with a plastic/rubber head mallet to avoid marring the case. I think its probably the most frustrating part of engine disassembly. If I remember right there were a couple little tabs that you could smack with a hammer and wooden dowel.

For the photos, I use photobucket -- lots of storage space and you can cut & paste the IMG tag into your reply.

That sprocket will have to go -- the teeth are worn to points as is the front sprocket (and chain). Anyone have a good resource to plan new gearing? it'll stay on the road so I won't need any crazy low-end.

Got an old tank from an SL and seat pan from a CL350. Stripped out the fabric & padding from the seat and chopped the tank to make a fairing for the rear -- pics to come soon.

New acquisition

I just picked up a CL200 and will be interested in your progress and sources for parts and particularly tires.

Thanks JTN. I'll keep trying as I'm sure all the bolts are out.

Great thread by the way, I'll keep a keen eye on your build.

Cheers,

Hey JTN, took your advice.



These are all the bolts



This is the bottom minus all the bolts.



Left hand side with rotor still attached.



Right hand side stripped.

I have bashed the thing from here to next week and it still wont budge.

I have attacked it with chisels, rubber mallets, hammers and wood. I have even broken it in one place. I think it was sealed with super glue.

Before I break it some more, does this look all good to split?

Thanks in advance.

Cibby.

(P.S. Sorry to hijack the thread for a minute. )

Check under the oil drain plug -- I think there's one more hiding in there . . .
