Kept myself amused lately doing some work on the engine.

Took the piston over to Pete in blenheim to get it machined so the conrod would fit



Working out compression volumes and bore and stroke etc so I know how much to remove from bottom of barrell. 2.5mm will give it 8.5 to 1



Then opened up the inlet manifold and inlet port and did some re-shaping especially of the inlet bowl area.





So getting there, my mind keeps creeping ahead and getting bogged down with other stuff but the engine part is coming along very nicely. Just have to get the valve seats refaced, cylinder honed and the 2.5mm removed from the bottom and it will be ready to button up.

Edit. sorry for top 2 pics being small but buggered if I can get them the same size as the other 2 grrrrrrr

Edit 2 Tried to resize first 2 pics but they now blurry.

Did you end up using my dremel thing? If so did it work very well?

Yea, it was betterer than my air tool, well the air tool is okay, but my wee compressor won't cope with the volume of air so it slows down too much.

I have finished with it for now if you want it back.

Found this yesterday http://www.powerdynamo.biz/eng/syste...3/7203inst.php. Bolts straight on.
I am not a fan of 6 volts and points, hmmm we'll see.

These projects could very easily get outta control costwise aye?

Yes indeedy. I find it's better to click the button than think on it too much. The way I reason it is that all the really cool bikes we like to look at won't recover the money & time spent on them but improve the world by keeping the economy going, recycling parts & add beauty to what could otherwise could be a bland gray world.
I also reason that the bits I buy are relatively cheap - no top shelf stuff for me- and do bring me lots of pleasure.

Thanks for the advice, just hit the button on a genuine nos headlight with switches etc, some clipons and and a nos veglia speedo.

Have decided to not put a fairing on it yet to save some coin cos the rims need replacing and getting wheels rebuilt isn't cheap.

What size are your old clipons? Could I borrow them for testing for fit?
You know what's stupid? I used to have a GB400 & got tired of the cafe riding stance- now I'm making one Jeez I'm easily influenced

You could easily make a fairing. They do look very cool naked or faired.

Unless your wife catches you, in which case the aggravation far outweighs any potential (imagined) benefits

Sharpest pic I can put on here otherwise go to zanzani site.

The fairing tank and seat are all availaable off the shelf from various suppliers aat not too-oo bad of a price. All race ones though so a hole would have to be cut in the front for a light. That would be my ultimate, but am being realistic cos I just wanna get on and ride it now.

Where is the best place in Nelson area to get bits of aluminium, maybe offcuts so I can make rearsets?
