And that brings us to the eye candy, which ain't much. It should move along once the parts come in. The swing arm and triple clamps are mounted to the frame.

Pretty sure I am going without the static damper on this resto. It can be installed later but unless you are a Triple Zero, you would never notice.

So, that's it for this weekend. I will be away next weekend and hopefully all the sheet I'm waiting for will come in. Thanks for following my resto.

That is going to be a beauty! All that cleaning and plating are going to make a great product.

(Those air scoops on the rear brake backing plate are vestiges left over from the 1969/70/71 H1's. The old front drum had em as well,they're a nice styling effort if nothing else.)

Had a nice package from Fedex at the door yesterday. Got the forks finished, sprocket and shocks mounted, and tins to the painter as well as shipping the chain gaurd out for rechrome. I would have gotten to a rolling chassis last night but I had forgotten to paint the fork mounted signal mounts and covers so I painted those too. Flying to South Carolina today for New Years and won't be back to work on the bike for about 10 days. I like the fact that stuff like paint and chrome are gone during this down period as it at least makes me feel like something is getting done.

That is my goal, to be ready for the 2 Stroke Meet in Deals Gap NC beginning of May. Yesterday I finally found an NOS sealed beam for the bike as well as an NOS headlight ring. I am pretty sure that is about it for things I need that are NOS. I have yet to go deep into the motor but with the cylinders off the crank looks good and no corrosion. I will tear it apart next weekend.

A couple of Winters ago I ended up getting both of these bikes done over one Winter,

This 77 KH400

And this 84 RZ350

If everything goes smooth the begining of may should be possible.

You are going to change crank seals, etc aren't you? Might as well send the tranny to R&D as long as it's apart...

Yes the crank is going to be sent out. I will look at the tranny, but that should be within my capabilities.

I have been enjoying your posts. Great workmanship... really!

I have a few general questions on these multi-cylinder 2-stroke cranks.

- What is the deal with the main seals between the flywheels. I am imagining that you have to press the crank apart to change them? Are they keyed some how to keep the crank pins in the correct relationship to each other?

- About a year ago I looked at a Yamaha yds3 (twin cylinder). I seem to recall the guy telling me the center crank seal was replaceable without splitting the crank... don't recall the details of this. Maybe you know?

- If you don't mind me asking, what is the range in cost one might expect to rebuild a crank for your bike? And are you doing just the seals or the whole thing (seals, rods, bearings). I can rebuild a single cylinder 2-stoke crank but am leery about trying a twin or triple . How did you find your crank rebuilder?

Thanks and keep up the great work!
Kevin

The crank gets minimum new seals and bearings. From there it is inspected to see if it needs rods. Last one I had rebuilt was an H2 750 crank that also needed new rods and that ran me $1,000.00 for everything. The rod kit alone is about $350 I think. I will probably send this one out to HVC Cycle who did my last one, I was happy with their work.

The center seals are on one side of the bearings. The cranks are pressed together , no keys. Harley cranks aren't keyed either.

Yes the trannys are simple, there a lot of good reading on how to shim it properly, the biggest issue is getting the kickstart spring on properly and even that's not rocket surgery

Have you given any thought to what kind of crank seal you are going to use? Porsche Dave in California has a good reputation for triple crank rebuilding.
