Default My projects

Keeps me busy...

First the Compbike, pretty much all home made in a shed, took three years so far and still not finished.

Next a simple rigid chop, with 127 El Bruto motor, 6 speed box, and decent brakes, taken from a Ducati 998. Its going to have a one off exhaust, oil tank forwards etc, not sure of the details yet, but its looking ok so far.

Last, my Merch 131 spent a lot of time on my mates new dyno over the winter. We filmed one of the early dyno runs on an iphone, aint too great, even with baffles, its too much for the mic. Its here on You tube

It was clear the V&H exhaust would have to go, so now making a new system in stainless with one off conical megas, hope to have it all done by next week.

The pipes are being made by Saf at Not A Fridge. I got a new camera the other week, which can take moving piccies, so here's a quick tour of Saf's workshop, as I wander about trying out me new fancy camera... lots of weird stuff being built... I like the little white ducati cafe racer, in for new pipes and Turbo Yam GTS...

The black Harley Bobber at the start had been ridden in for some tidying up, someone beforehand had got the oil lines mixed up, its surprising how far a Harley will go without any oil in the motor ...

Depends how much clearance you need.. several options..

1) Move the rear wheel slightly off centre (with new spacers), say 5mm to 10mm, you wont notice the difference on the bike, an easy way of gaining some room.

2) Machine down the sprocket carrier and or the wheel itself, so the sprocket sits closer to the wheel centre.. depends how much clearance there is between the chain and tyre.

3) Fit a narrower tyre/wheel. Being a Dyna makes it more involved to fit wider tyres than say a Softail.

Finally got around to taking off the heads, as I wanted to replace the pushrod covers and maybe paint the heads silver/grey. I hate opening up an engine that runs ok, turns out for good reason. It was all going to plan, when I hit a problem. The new lower push rod covers wouldn't fit over the old (none standard) inner cover. This was a surprise, as I'd assumed even aftermarket inners would be the same, since they cant be seen. But no. This stopped the work dead in its tracks. I've ordered new inner pushrod tubes, which have to come from Holland, no idea how long that will take.

The order didn't take long to arrive, so got busy cleaned and painted the heads, new pushrod covers, head bolts and rocker dome head nuts..

The paint was taking its time to cure, so helped it along with 30 mins at 80c..

Got this stainless starter button, think I'll fit it here, on the top motor mount, I may be able to fit the horn button there too, which will keep the wiring out of sight..

Just an idea but as the starter and Gen have horizontal fins on the end rather than drill the sprocket cover some horizontal slots on the side might fit better visually rather than the vertical row of holes?

I don't understand the reason for the drilling - is it cosmetic? If so - don't cos it's not an improvement (only my opinion of course).

The electrics tray is done now, and the rectifier bolted to its underside. I also made a stainless base to bolt to the seat unit, as it needed a bit more support. I still need to make another vertical piece which will bolt to the seat hump. Then the seat needs to be raised about 10mm as its resting on the shock mounts otherwise.
