Looking very 'period' Beach, coming together nicely.

I'd say you've hit the nail on the head with a mainly silver scheme, or a vintage race rep style paint job.

Why thank you kindly .... I saw an old colour pic of a Triton yesterday. "Proper" SIlver with Red and Black traditional pinstriping - very tempting.

So when you're looking to get an intake plenum made up and getting quotes for items that must be gold plated ......... hmmmm - bread baking tin - right size and just needs a plate welded on to seal. All the various intake bellmouths, take offs, manifold connections can be welded in prior to being sealed ...... cost £5.00 !!!

given the thin-ness and general tinniness of those sorts of baking accessories, i'd be going for soldering or at most brazing, any sort of proper welding will distort the metal or just blow holes in it. brazing using a tiny weeny flame should be controllable
another option might be to check out proper industrial strength baking tins, check out catering suppliers or similar, they are a lot heavier construction and designed to take far more brutal treatment from ham fisted speed freaks (oops I mean bakers)

Exactly so Grasshopper .................... I have a guy [ 80 yrs old !! ] all lined up to braze the thing up. That said - the baking tin is HD [ ?? ] and I also have a "terrine mould" which is in stainless ...... we'll see, but thanx for the reminder !

The stainless terrine mould is the bollox. ! ;) Baking tin would braze up OK - but it's Teflon coated - not sure about that.

SO, while I'm here ...... where do Board Tracker builds go on this forum ? Actually - I guess this Glemseck thread should be over in Cafe Racers now ?????

Yes, as I'm feeling well enough to get excited about projects again ...... best have another one ! Dropped the hammer on the 125 Virago powered Board Tracker idea in a Motobecane or similar chassis. I got a complete running Virago for £650. Already had offers of £150 for the spoked wheels ! I reckon in true Beachcomber fashion - the sale of the unwanted bits will pay for the bike - and maybe a little over. The bike has a V5 [ title ] which will make it simples when it comes to registration. I also scored  an XLS 125 spoked 21" front wheel for £30.

Brian's off for Christmas, but as soon as he gets back we'll be measuring up for the wheel spacers / sleeves and then it's making patterns for the under frame fuel cell, and mounting brackets for the "tank", seat and fairing. Also scored a beautiful oil catch tank  [ Chinabay ] for £19 !. 8)

New Year - new start

First day in the garage and we have finally [ !! ] fitted up the front forks – oil in and actually got the caps on without cross threading them ! What a fargin stupid design !! The wheel has been centralised ready to be measured for the new spindle / spacers, then that’ll be the front end buttoned up. STILL need a fork brace ? The one I bought was very nice – but not for my bike ! Still waiting for the refund. I think I might go all classic with the steering dampener – like the old fashioned Brit bikes – I even have a Manx Norton adjuster wing nut ! More work on positioning the blower / drive / manifolding / plenum etc. The good news is that everything has dropped neatly into place. We’re also mocked up the under frame tank, breather can, etc. Rear sprocket now fitted so we can get a base alignment for the rear wheel.

And finally, I removed the “new” [ 4 years ago ] gel battery from under the seat – and guess what – it’s charged up AND holding 12.75 amps after 5 days.

Oh yes - the bastard gazzumped me on the Virago having accepted my offer >:( >:(. back to the KZ powered Boardtracker then.

Then we found out that a fuel cell under the frame is a non starter according to the regs, even though it would have had more protection than a tank in the stock position.  ::) So it's back to the original plan when I was going to use the Weber carb'd engine - in the frame diamond behind the engine. Abandoned the idea when I was using the turbo -  as that's where the turbo was going ! Switch to the blower and things were still mighty tight, but then I found the smaller cased Eaton - and bingo that area is now completely clear. Looks like the same sort of capacity 3 galls [ imp ], maybe more. We'll do the Blue Peter cardboard mock up next week.

My tame machine shop guy is still working [ keeps threatening to retire - inconsiderate bastard !  ::)] and is quite happy to continue making my P.I.T.A. parts. First job is the front wheel spindle and rear wheel spacers so I can get the rolling chassis .....er  - rolling. ;) I'll also discuss with him making the blower drive. While I'm at it I'll get him to make up the 40mm front wheel spacers for my Volvo 940 wagon project - did I say I was cutting down due to health issues ?? Guess you're a long time dead.

Looking good TJ and it's funny to note what kind of car you drive... (Even though I assume that you're the cool kid in town and enjoy it with one of the nice petrol fourbangers in it - mine's a turbodiesel, which makes it a bit bland, but the perfect towing rig)

I have (by now) received my Eaton M24 (out of a 1.4L VW) for the TR1. Nifty bit of kit. Should you run out of space, it's like a 2/3s copy of your M45, but with a 1.93:1 step up box, so it actually moves about the same amount of air. And it's max. RPM is 17.000. Would make a nice alternative or step stone between AMR500s and Eaton M45s.

Thanx for the headsup on the VW blower - I AM on the lookout for one.

I've had all the cool cars, Cobra, Porsche, Jag [ both real and replica ] - but ALWAYS ran a sensible estate as my every day "works" car ! Usually Citroens - CX, XM, then the crappy C5 - before settling on Volvo.
