I must have had a mild stroke when i posted the piston to wall clearence!!

NOT 1.4mm (0.055")

It is
Front Jug # 0.14mm (0.0055")
Rear jug # 0.11mm (0.0045)

still its out of spec.. (0.001" - 0.002")

I have decided to buy new jugs anyway.. dont want to deal with the powder coat / chrome stuff.. start with new fresh looking stuff!

Here is a pic of the oil return on the front cylinder... Dont know if its a big deal? (could this have been an issue burning oil?)





this i DONT like.. look at the exhaust port (front head)
Cant be good for flow...



and the rear head looks better... if compared..




shall we "port" the rear head or just put it back and forget about it?

what should you guys do?




Cheers

Your frame looks terrific for being painted with a brush. Maybe I'll just throw my spray guns away.

After i was done with the gearbox oil change i couldnt help looking at my clutch arm.. it doesnt look right!
and it wasnt bolted in good and snug.. it just pop loose in my hand when i pulled straight up (bolt not in the pic)



so i found a kick pedal from a China mini chopper engine.. think it was a 110cc.
this might work...



cut off all the junk and welded a longer piece on it...



spot welded it to the "square" bottom piece and drilled a 4mm hole all the way through and a bigger 6.5mm half way...fits my Hinckley Triumph clutch cable...
slizing it open in the end so i could put the cable into place.



I drilled it in an angle so it wouldt "bend"..



here its just spot welded to the "square" ring and the spacer for the bolt...



and from another angle..



gonna finnish welding it tomorrow and grinding it into the shape i want it..
im pretty pleased with it so far..

and i made it myselfe!





cheers.

Ok... I want a clean kick pedal.
I had a popsickle but i didnt like the look of that!

a long time ago i shortened a fork tube on my -74 Honda Monkey bike and the cut off part was a perfect fit!

(never ever throw away parts! you never know when you need them!)

the end cap is from my wrecked Scrambler handlebar, its stainless and welded up nicely through the hole on the end!

result...




finally started on my rear fender. its a 21" harley front fender.
I have to widen it atleast 45mm to fit the tire and the fender strut.
the strut are from my 2001 bonneville that i sold last summer...
fits like a glove!!




gonna make my own 2 into 1 so i mocked them up on the floor.
need the motor in the frame before i can start that project..







cheers..

got some work done today...


split the fender...



Fuck.. i didnt have any sheet metal at home.. (remember to buy more!)
had to cut some from this 2" x 1"..



spotwelded into place.. its a little thicker than the fender so i had to aim the weld to the thicker piece..
welded it in short beeds and moved around alot so it wouldnt twist.



How close is safe to mout a fender?
i know that the tire gets larger at speed...






i didnt use the first strut i had on.. it was hollow and to fragile so i made some out of 10mm solid round bar.

welded on the other side.. trying to keap it as clean as i can.





test fit...



i havent solved how i will mount it to the fender yet.. cant decide if i want a "sissy" on just snug around the fender.. decissions decissions





well thats al folks..



cheers!

My god I missed her!

She is back were she belongs..





mocked up my "new" exhaust just to get an idea of how it will look..
I think she is stunning... its a fucking beautiful engine! oh my oh my..
