Besides dealing with my neighbors VW buggy I did get the motor in the frame and it has ton's "O" spark. Yippee



I started on getting the pipe in the frame as a mock up. I have to order gaskets for the joints tomorrow.

Machined down? Indeed, you truly are a PRO. I would have taken my angle grinder to them and whacked 'em off.

I actually have a full suspension package for a 79 YZ 250 that would probably fit, but it would take away from the originality of the bike. But you never know...........I almost thought about making it a twin shock.

It would be a fun ride but not competitive against the 78-79 Honda's or Yamaha's

I spent yesterday having an early Easter party with the family. I didn't get a whole lot done before, just put the carb in some Pinesol for cleaning. But after lunch I started working on the pipe. I had sprayed the pipe with some black to keep it form rusting while waiting for the right time to install it. So I wire wheeled the paint off. I hadn't noticed this dent in the front of it.



I had done a procedure on my KTM pipe to take a dent out of it and figured I would try it with this pipe. DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME.......IT COULD KILL YOU ARE SOMEONE ELSE. Luckily I had allready had this happen so I was prepared. It will blow the cap off the end about a scrillion miles and hour.

An air fitting on one end of the pipe and a Jim-Cap on the other end.



Pull out the torch heat it up and add air. It should pop out.



It popped out about 2/3rds of the dent before the cap blew off and landed about 70 yards away out in the desert.

Filled them up with 30wt as that is what the manual calls for to the proper amount.



I read somewhere to pump the forks about 15 to 20 times to get the air out of them. This is when I discovered that one fork leg had more oil in it than the other. Seems odd to me. I drained the forks and took measurements in the beaker again. Hmmmmmmmmm. The correct amount. Measuring from the top of the tube down to the oil level was about a 1/2" difference. I guess the maching from the factory wasn't as good as they said. Me pumpin aluminum. It was easier to do both at the same time.

I notice the CZ engine sitting under the counter just in case.
You never know.

I just picked up an ugly 1975 MX250 with a white MX400 alu tank on it,luckily it was pretty cheap what with the end broken off the crank,came with a spare engine that looks to be a DT250.
There might be something useful on it.

Handy being able to build your own shock from scratch.

There are actually 2 CZ motors sitting under the bench. I may have a plan to put one in a 1986 KTM chassis just because I can.

Good score on the parts. Parts is parts.

Before I went to the races last week I put the carb in a Pinesol concoction for about 36 hours. It cleaned up real well.





I also received parts that I am going to start installing hopefully tonight or tomorrow.

I find the Cran-Apple cleans those carbs very well AND it's pretty tasty over ice.

The 400 is looking good. I like the dent removal technique I will have to remember that one.

I got a text the other day and it seems our mutual buddy picked up the TY..cool
