I agree with Mortimersickle, that bike is sure looking nice and I'm sure you will have it running spot on for the races this weekend.

To the best of my knowledge, CR250 Elsinore forks and front wheel, but there are subtle differences in the fork caps that make me think the fork legs on this particular bike might be MT250 or? They are 35 mm and have the fork spring caps held in by circlips, instead of the threaded caps. Generally these forks are used with 72 SL350 triple clamps (35 mm also) but when we recently assembled the bike we had several mismatched sets and the triple clamp on it now was off a parts bike of unknown origin.

Thanks...I've got a 71 with smaller forks, but I also have some mr250 legs and a set of clamps from a 72 along with an mr250 wheel. I've been thinking about sending those forks off for some improvements and then mount them up.

thanks

One of the inmates here Konflict Motorsports did the front forks for Oregon Coasts SL350 and I've talked to him about revalving or modifying mine, sounded like he could help. He also is the one that got the special rear springs wound for this bike.

Mr Fast, you should here it, sounds GREAT! Running it a little every night trying to break in before this Sunday's vintage mx. Tonight will be getting the semi final jetting done, hoping it races as good as it sounds!

PS; Congrats on the great rides and finishes by the Lameco team in the MK1, you guys were amazing, well done!

Last report before heading out...

Over the last few nights we've pretty much finished the project, at least for now!

A couple nights ago, was still working on the clutch and found out the clutch side cover gasket was wrong;



No time to try and order one, what shall I do? Cut and splice might work?



Yep, that'l work with a lot of sealer just for good measure!



The splice was at the top of the cover, or I wouldn't have tried this. Sprayed it with copper coat on both sides, plus clear silicone in key areas, bolted it on and let it dry overnight before filling with oil. No leaks so far. Whew.

Steel Stampede / AHRMA is requesting mufflers for this event, not required but desirable. Since we don't have any for this bike, decided to whip up some downturns and at least divert the sound into the ground and make it a little quieter.









Last night was it, get it finished! We rejetted the carbs, changed the clutch cable and numerous other little tasks. Here Randy is removing the seat to get better access to the carbs.



Back up and in the shop at 5 AM, welded up the bike stand, finished loading and headed to work. As soon as I can make a break for the door, we're headed to Crooked River and the Steel Stampede!
