This is not optimal but will be the stuff of ADVrider legend if it can be done.

hmmm, Let's resurrect a thirty + year old motor and race 1200 miles through the desert..... oh yeah been there done that.... LAMEco don't quit!

LAMEinator rises again.

No bs Halfast. The new motor goes into the bike in the am. Patrick & Owen worked on the bike all day. Jr. went to Phoenix & got new rings. I picked them up in Camp Verde & got to Flag by 3:00 pm. By 5:00 a complete motor sat on the bench. Will post pics am of the completed bike.
When we examined the countershaft seal we discovered it was an after market piece of crap installed incorrectly. No wonder it failed. It made me realize two things. Never expect anything done by anyone before you will be OK. This is a well known lesson that must be repeated until finally learned. Two, our luck is still holding. It could have failed Sunday on the lake bed. That's why we're LAMEco. Still learning.

Kawasaki lost the last 1000 because they did not check everything in their engine.

Wednesday night

Well it's Wednesday night & it's got the feeling of Christmas Eve. Not so tiny tots in their beds & eyes wide awake. The LAMEco crew has been too busy to post pictures finishing up the Blue Rhino. Worlds most expensive 80 something Suburban with 16" travel in the rear & 9" in the front. LAMEco designed cantilevered rear shocks, etc., etc. The whole rig is a patent waiting to happen. Jr. has been vindicated. All my life I've had to listen to him tell me about other guys coming up with his inventions that he had already dreamed up. Lucky him, we created LAMEco Racing & he's running amock. Maybe it will work. One thing about it, it ain't gonna be 1/2 assed. Full assed or nothing. Honey, does LAMEco make my butt look too big?
We're leaving tomorrow with the Lameinator, Sr, Sue & Owen. We'll spend the night in Yuma to be in Mexicali Friday morn. Jr. with Honzilla & other crew will arrive in the pm. Mr. Epic, aka halfFast will arrive from Cal also. We promise to post pics then. Please, all of our friends & followers of this thread: Wish us good luck, Godspeed & may the Devil know nothing of our shenanigans until we're sitting at Javier's Wednesday night.
