Mate, nice work so far. Are you keeping the frame silver? I like it. Making me look like I'm running at snails pace (which I definitely am).  Will be keeping posted.
Do it again

After pulling the VM 26 carb down and giving it a good clean out I have decided that it is in a bit worse for wear state. It has quite a few scratches on the slide and there was an unknown insect that had made a mud home in the air circuit.

Ohh and I have a lead on another bike. Described as "a 100cc twin 2 stroke" I showed the bloke a few pictures and it looks as if it may be a Yamaha YL1 missing the chrome tank covers.

Well, the other bike is a LS2, not the twinjet I wanted but still, whos doesn't want a 2 stroke twin with just enough power to pull skin off a pudding.

And I thought my 50cc polini/blata was fast, but TWO of those big hard hitting barrels? Inconceivable.

Now THIS is podracing!
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

Ha not yet, bloke who I am getting it from is on his days off. Should have aome by Sunday.

As much as I will be hated by some, I do plan to modify it. 100cc and 10hp just isn't enough to hall my arse around. I have found a way to make it 155cc but all this is for a later build.

As for Roker.... THE SWING ARM BUSHINGS ARRIVED! So tomorrow I will start on putting her all back together for a quick run up the street.

New bushings are in. Swingarm is on and it is to friken humid to do anything else.

Ohh and I forgot to mention I fixed the crack in the fuel tank. Used "liquid metal" it has held up on another fuel tank for the past 8 years so I trust it on this.
Just made sure to rough up the surface before hand to give it something to stick to.

Oh I am buggered if I remember. The brand name wasn't even liquid metal, the last lot was. It is a two part epoxy designed to bond to aluminium and steel.

I will have a look at the tubes once I am home tomorrow. I used the same stuff to patch a hole in my boat and it is still going strong.
