With all the rest of the mods, the valves tend to start floating, so upgrading the valve springs is a must. Being impatient like I am, I tried to do it with the head on and in the bike. Next thing I know a keeper fell down the motor so I had to start taking it apart till I found it. I did find it, and now the head is back on.  There is going to be way to much power for this bike. Hopefully it doesn't just turn the frame into spaghetti

That is wicked. We need vids when you first fire it up and rip around on it...just in case there's some comedy gold to be had.  With all of these "little" bike builds I'm getting the bug to build something now too...

Great work so far! Bummer about the keeper falling in :( glad  you got it sorted.

These are sure popping up on here =) I got one going (well it all started with a black widow anyways) and ridesolo has a 70 Rupp Enduro going too! I'm liking this.

I started this thread three years ago. I like to think I am way ahead of the curve

Would be awesome to find some dirt track or field we have permission to rip around in next year.  Would like to be able to have some fun without us all getting arrested :)
