How long after it was installed did you attempt to fire it?

I would have held out for maybe 30 seconds at the most.

Those scarf joint ends on the rings makes filing them a good challenge.

I'm sure you checked the cam timing and didn't just go with the punch marks.

Dang, that's pretty. Why the taped-back control levers?

Is it possible for a long bike guy to be in love with a strange low flying 2wheeled machine?

That makes me feel kinda funny, like when we used to climb the rope in gym class.

You're gonna leave it ... until ... the weekend ... to start it? I hope I misunderstood.

Your patience is uncanny and, I have to say, disturbing.

What a splendid thing to have built. Really really fine. Thanks for the great thread.

I have had to wait until I had time (a weekend) to start something. To get all my ducks in a row, to fetch the fire extinguisher, to make sure I had time to fettle out any problems that cropped out.

It's terrible and wonderful all at once. This thing looks like a hoot and a holler to ride. You did a great job with it.

Can't wait to hear how it rides!

Hi All,

Easter weekend spent kicking the bike to death, even breaking the center stand!!! To no avail, not even the smallest fart...

Verified everything, had the carb and magneto in a 1000 bits...

So tonight, a friend, Alan, came to help me for a pushing cession...

I live at the bottom of a hill, in town... So we headed up for a bit, then turned into the cemetary that has an even more pronounced gradient.

OK, 1st push, a few farts but nowt conclusive... So we push up again...

2nd push, the bike starts well in less than 5 meters, but it sounds fluffy and too rich. I open the auxiliary air fully and she picks up nicely now, clear and deep raging sound... and the flywheel takes off!!! Sheared key...

I'll chase a few bits tomorrow and will reassemble as fast as I can!

A few shots taken by my friend Alan:..











So long, Patrick
