Discovered one of the kits included only 4 discs. Argh. I just re-used one of the originals. Keep full set of 5 w new plates on the shelf for later, just in case.

Not hard to see Bore-tech Heavy Duty springs. I wanted to measure them but couldn't locate my calipers. Argh.

The wire is thicker and they are just a smidge larger diameter. But fit just fine.

Tore gasket otherwise the rest came off nice and clean. Im not gonna spend the agonizing time it takes to remove, clean up and replace.

So it gets a light smear of high heat rtv. I couldn't find my black rtv.

::). Before torquing down every bolt...ensure you don't have a rag pinched twixed cases. ARGH. LOL. ;D

11494-120518080520-3728776.jpeg


got the adjuster dialed right in.

Bore-tech springs ARE stiffer. They are good, but I sure wouldn't want anymore at the lever. 8). Thanks for your suggestion PJ.

Made a really heavy leather tray for cooler. It will be secured to rack w small SS straps.

At a 1/4 inch thick, the leather was just a little too much for the Singer needles. Rachel yelled at me... ;D
So had to stitch corners up by hand. Yes it sucked. ;)

Also, wet sanded tank. It looks like it has a big dent in the pic, actually just a shadow of my elbow.

Piglet is Finished. 72 CL100

Finished. Complete w "period correct" 1975 cooler. ;D

I don't know anything about riding off road.
But I will find out sooner than later, if I have built a capable machine.
In 3 weeks I will be taking Piglet on the mountain trails of N Carolina.

Re: Piglet is Finished. 72 CL100

hey man, the bike looks killer, did the aftermarket front fender bolt straight in or was it custom made?

Thanks a bunch...
Fender, Not really bolt on, its an old fender made for some other kind of bike. I don't have a clue what bike (ebay find and listed wrong).
I had to make a custom bracket to bolt up to the triple.
It was a fun task to fit it. made a couple different brackets before I came up w the proper shape and angles.
The 100 triple has the two threaded holes up front and I wanted something more substantail than flopping on 2 bolts.
So I removed the lock and used one of those holes as the 3rd bracket mount.
So 3 bolts-bracket to triple and 4 bolts -fender to bracket.
Ill look if I took a pic. If not, I will take pics next time I remove it. Not planning to anytime soon.

72 CL100, Piglets Top Speed Vid

Changed and dropped the carb needle and re-installed old factory slide.

Piglet Likey!

A crappy vid (camera vibrates and rattles inside case) of Piglets top speed of 56mph.

You may want to turn down volume. LOL. the rattle is crazy annoying.
