    Ton up SR250: 100mph, 100kg, 30hp

    Haha 'sh*tting dog position' My other SR's will get 130kph with the performance kit and a 17T sprocket on the front. But air resistance is quadratic so as you go faster, much more power is needed (or less wind resistance). So the step from 130kph to 161kph is huge o_O I am confident I'll...

    V Star 650

    Wow, amazing skills, awesome to scroll through your process photos, I didn't want it to stop! Very cool front end and can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the bike :)

    Thanks! I finally got it started again on the weekend and it seems to run well. I decided to break up the problems into two separate actions - get the engine running (check) and fix the clutch (next job). So now I will need to take care of that next weekend and take the opportunity to...

    Yay! Finally got the 'oringed' cylinder back and found some time to assemble the engine again - this time with shortened head dowels for the thinner 0.5mm copper head gasket and sealant added around the 'leaky parts' of the head to cylinder joint. Hopefully a new 'first start' soon :D

    While I have been waiting for parts through this project and especially recently waiting for this engine work to be done, I have had a pet side project on the go. A problem I had with the last SR project was finding mirrors that looked good. The same problem was encountered with this bike...

    Ton up SR250: 100mph, 100kg, 30hp

    Big news! I got the engine running! Even before the end of the month of July! However, failure ensued right away. All things considered, the first start went ok. It is always a process to go through and make sure things are right and I was not sure how it would go. But I did manage to...

    Cb450/500t track bike

    Great looking bike! Love the rearsets and linkages. You running reverse shift pattern by the looks of it? I have never tried this, I wonder how hard it is to break the current muscle memory pattern! I really like the rear brake cable set up as well - that is something I should have done for...

    1975 Honda CB360T

    Amen! Nice work on the cleaning though and I agree, the parts look well good enough :)

    Finally got a decent chunk of time to sort the exhaust. I bought a nice reducer that almost matches the Jadus header and the steps up to match the silencer (almost). In this reducer I welded in a vacuum pick up for the PCV valve/pump that I will be testing once the bike is running. For now it...

    It is old hot rodding trick that increases carb throat area by cutting off one side of the butterfly valve holder - so it is a blade rather than a fork. In this case, area increases by around 10%. Who knows how much it will help, but thought why not try it! Hoping the engine will want to...

    Honda 650 single

    Wow, these things are bloody beautiful! Love the frame jig and frame design. Great craftsmanship :D Would this frame design work with other big singles? I am thinking the Yamaha (I am biased) TT600R or even the Suzuki Big engines - DR750 and DR800s?

    Finally, a decent update... Carb restored (cleaned, re-jetted, butterfly valve mod, air/fuel screw upgrade) Wire harness 95% sorted - battery connectors installed, ignition 'switch' (replaces keyed ignition) installed (see above carb), all lights installed and operating - see the solutions for...

    And some more parts taking shape... A trimmed battery tray - I designed the tray so that it could be used with both an 8 cell and 4 cell lithium battery but I had never actually tried it with the 4 cell - always wanting the extra juice for the starter. But now with kickstart only I could try...

    A few more parts taking shape. A trimmed guard - much lighter than stock :D Grommeted holes in the guards for mounting - vibration damping. And a trimmed and modified speedo bracket - for the new unit.
