    I came came across this today and at first sight I thought it should have a 50cc Honda or Lifan perched on the frame in front of the seat pole. Really got my imagination going, yeah, I prolly shoulda' bought it.

    Overdesigned vs. Underdesigned Which is it?

    In my build thread I've noted an annoyance that came up w/ an item I purchased. Fortunately I think I've come up w/ a work around as noted below, but the whole thing brought up memories of other things I've bought, both automotive/motorcycle and other items that seemed like a good idea but just...

    Sparck Reg/Rec - Coils - Elecronic Tach Connections

    I just want to confirm: Assembling my CL360/378. I've got a black wire from the Reg/Rec, a black w/ white stripe wire from each coil, and the tachometer lead from my DanMoto digital dashboard. Should these all be connected together? (Have read that I may have to add a 10k, 1/2 watt resistor...

    Shortening clutch and throtle cables

    I'm working away at reassembly and realize that my clutch and throttle cables are now about four inches too long. Is there a relatively fool proof method to shorten them yourself or, for the sake of "being sure" would it just be best to order custom made?

    Replace coils?

    I'm in the process of cleaning up the bits n pieces on the CL378 for reassembly and discovered that one of the spark plug boots has broken off the cable from the coil. It looks like this was originally manufactured w/ some kind of resin (or something) holding the cable in the housing and it...

    Looking for Seat Mounting Advice

    I decided to start a category in this thread rather than put it into my build thread, thought maybe it might get more traffic here... who knows? I'm trying to get things finished up on my long-running (too long) CL378 build so I can tear down, paint the frame, and then get it finished up once...

    SAFETY ALERT in North Central Ohio!

    This morning I had Mrs Ridesolo at a local hospital for some testing. It took longer than expected so I was waiting out in the parking lot. I happened to look down and was dismayed to see this GREEN ZIP TIE laying there. Obviously some local rider who thought they were safe is riding their...

    2017 Indy 500 Tickets (& Parking Pass)

    I just thought I'd throw this out there. A buddy and I had made plans to attend the 100th running of the Indy 500 last year. His wife took ill and died so instead of being at the race on Memorial Day weekend we were at her funeral. We were going to try to go this year so he went ahead and got...

    Heat & plastic body parts

    I have some painted parts I've been heat curing and have more to do. Most are metal, but there are a couple of plastic pieces, OEM fenders, that I'd like to do as well. Does anybody have knowledge or experience with how much heat parts like that will handle? It'll only be 200 degrees for an...

    Seat Upholstery; What Did It Cost You?

    I've got my upholstery pan done and I'm going to be seeing a local guy who does that kind of stuff. He did a new convertible top rear window for my old Tracker a few years ago and did a great job with it and I know he does lots of golf cart and boat seats and has a good reputation. Anyway, I...
