NordieBro may or may not be going to the Burt. The builder of "The Mongrel" may or may not have it together in time.
He's not interested in getting it going on petrol as meths should be enough for anyone.
198? YZ250 with a TZ350 engine putting out >80hp at the wheel...

I heard that going from outside the building - very scary sounding.
Don't worry about the mongrel. it won't last for more than one straight as the mech will only have just put it together 3am that morning after having 3 years to do it

Good to see the scrawny bugger back tho

Dunno what Bruce was thinking, letting Lester loose on gearboxes...
He sings along to songs on the radio too. Really, really badly...
You know the sound a car with dodgy power steering makes? They have to pay Lester royalties...

So here we all are.

A balanced crank [ 80% ] looking at it's new home




For what we are about to receive







It's coming together



For Motu, yeah the new timing gears are heavier, $40 for the gears, 2 doz beers for the drilling, pretty . I chose 7 holes so I did not have weak points on opposite sides of each gear we will see how it works out.



looks trick



We struck a wee hitch, the tappets don't quite fit the tappet blocks , bugger all in it, but I will take them to the machinist. I could lap them in but that just accelerates wear on the tappets

Today was a wash out. Brought a TY175 for the Photog & took it out today.
Photog & I sat on a log while SWMBO went round & round telling us how much fun it was.
We now need 2 more trials bikes

When is it going to be doing laps?
