That's some nice milling work you do with that mini mill!

Some nice work there.  Especially like the eccentric peddle adjuster - often overlooked.  I often bore a hole axially through the threaded section of a stainless bolt and silver solder the cable to it.  Stronger than the cable itself, and makes a handy adjustment to the cable length when you don't want to have the adjustment at the housing as you have nicely done.
That's a good idea.

The eccentric pedal adjuster was the tidiest way I could think of adjust the pedal height with as little work as possible.

Saw the thread on your RD. One beautiful Yammy!

Thanks

I would be lost without my mini mill and lathe. I have spent quite a bit of time setting the mill up and adding bracing to stiffen the whole setup. By far the best addition was digital readouts as they add a higher level of accuracy with ease. It is nice to be able to make two components that fit together perfectly without constant adjustments.

Couldn't agree more, I am running a "slightly" larger round-column RF-25, but even though bigger, the minimill with its dove-tailed spine is way superior. (I should have kept mine and converted it to a CNC-machine, but you know how it goes...)

it's getting close now to finishing the final dry assembly. Only a couple of things left then strip back down to finish all the parts off

She Lives!!

Today I got my little racer running for the first time. After a quick couple of runs I took this short video.

The carb is a little rich just off idle but I won't both tuning until the air filter is fitted.

The gearing is quite high but she revs out nicely. Going to be one fun suburb blaster.

It sure is going to be a fun little bike to scoot around on. The FZR you saw is actually an original first gen Honda CBR900 Fireblade. A huge lot of fun that one is!

Today I finished off connecting the Velona speedo with the pickup on the front sprocket bolts, connected the indicator and high beam instrument lights then tidied up all the welds on the seat tail piece including rounding everything off. Once last walk around with her running before stripping down to paint then final reassemble.


The last couple of days was spent making the pod air filter casing. It is a requirement for registration here in NSW Australia, no exposed pod air filters allowed.
