Hey Mike

What size is the carb? 
It looks BIG
 
    Bones

I have been through this many times.    Carb "looks" too big.   How does it run on test?   OK?    Good?    Make more bhp?    etc, etc, etc . . . . . . .

Give the engine "what it wants", as long as the tq and bhp are "driveable".    Oh, BTW, this means different things to different people.
 cheers

Hi, Bones. Yeah, the carb looks huge but it's just a 34mm. The reed box we made to mount the 125 reeds makes the carb stick out another inch, too.

Got a lot done this week but there's still a lot left.  Can't get anyone to feel the urgency here.

Done; handlebars, Dzus plates mounted for body and body mounted, front fender mounted, steering stabilizer.

Kinda' done; engine mounts (tacked), expansion chamber turned 180deg (still need to cut it again to adjust angle), controls fitted.

Yet to do; exhaust stinger, shift linkage, steering stops, all electrical, mount tail section, cut fuel tank to fit and move spigot, paint, windshield, dyno testing. (there's more I'm sure)

Getting ready for the dyno is now the #1 priority.  A local nice SCTA tech guy has offered to do a "tech for class" inspection.  That's another priority.

I may show up for Speedweek still in primer.  rolleyes

Pics are; the Harbor Freight trailer (folds to fit against the wall of the shop), cool-ish lower fender mount, controls being test fitted.

What?  Show up at SpeedWeek in primer?  How gauche!  You'd be the first-ever racer to do that. rolleyes

It's looking great -- and you're not as far behind where you "should" be as you might think.  Keep at it and thanks for letting us in on the fun.

Might have paint after all. Had to change welders. The slow pace (and a lot more ) was making me nuts.  The new guy's much faster and we think alike.  Looks like it'll be done by this weekend.  Have to cut out and redo some of the other guys work. I'm not happy with  it.

Finding the right welder is a big issue and I understand your frustration.

Happy to hear you got the thing sorted.

Your bike looks right and they say if it does it goes right too (not direction wise). grin

I needed a stinger that was exactly 15" long and .74" ID. A tremendous challenge for the other welder. The new guy spent about 2 minutes in his junk pile and came up with a set of handlebars from a kids tricycle.  .74" !  Welded 2 of the bends together and aimed it out the side. Voila'. Perfect!  Took about half an hour. And it's chrome! cheers  grin
It exits straight out the side about 6" below my right elbow. Good ear plugs will be a must!

Were those mounts supposed to be finished as it appears?.

Hey Fordboy
 I didn't say the carb looked too big
  I was just asking what size carb he is using-- 2strokes like big carbs.
  My 80 cc uses a 34mm and my 125 uses a 38 or 39mm

  I'm going to miss seeing Sofa run as I won't be at Speed Week- I will be at BMST and WoS.
Good luck

Hey Mike, are you referring to the welder who did your frame or another welder? Also I see from the pic that it looks like the mount is welded to a saddle that is hose-clamped to the frame cross member. Was that his idea of the finished mount? Hard to tell how it is supposed to be from the photo.

Bones,

You are right, I stand corrected.   My apologies as well.

They were only tacked but, yeah, that was his idea of fancy motor mounts.  angry  Pretty good seat mounts though. (if there was a seat!)
