I've got two projects I need to finish before I can start on the 45.
My frame is a poster child for a bad 70s acid trip. Once I get it sorted out, I can have it rolling in a very short time. I had hoped to get it up this year, but I got hit big for taxes and some unexpected home repairs which ate up my play money. LOL!

The engine is stock, with the exception of the carb. I've got a Linkert m-18 I'm going to put on, just need to find a manifold for it.
Kickstarter!

The nominal 1" model M-18 and its restrictive manifold may disappoint you, as it is designed for the low end torque requirements of a Servicar.

I would suggest a WL manifold, and any 1 1/4" model M instead.

M-18s are not that common, and you may be able to find an even-up trade for both.

What kind of non-destructive speed can you get out of that, assuming the engine is mostly stock?
It's not fast by any standard. I've never had a spedo on it so I don't know how fast its ever gone, it will putt down the back roads fine.

I don't need to loose any more power even if I do have the carb already. I've got a few Amal's, wonder how one of those would work.

Its not that the M-18 robs power, it just gives it all to the low end, which is necessary for lugging around with a lot a payload.

How big o' boy are you?
The M-18 venturi can be hogged out a skosh, too.

I have no clue about AMALs
(and not looking for any).

I'm tall, but not a big ol boy payload. lol

Sweet, looking forward to it.
I've been watching your build on here and it is top notch!

Is that aluminium?

Do you chalk your files?

Pool table chalk works great.

I made this out of four pieces of cold rolled steel. I'm hoping it will look like it was a cast piece and not cut out on a mill. I started cleaning it up today, I've got one more spot to weld.

I've been playing around casting some aluminum parts, so I'll give the pool table chalk a try to keep the files from loading up.

because the bike fell over ...due to the heavy wingnut :D;)

cool bike
man i love my "45 's
pretty sure you will say the exact same thing
I'm not sure what it is about 45's, but they just seem to take you back to a simpler time.

I'm looking for a Servi frame thats been hacked to so I can build a trike like this as well.

They sound like a sick lawn-mower, but the operator has a much better look on his face than that of one pushing a sick lawn-mower. Love puttin' around on 45's!!!
