Hi Lars. This build shows a fellow with strong craftsmanship talent who is progressing to learn the tools and analytical skills of seasoned builders and racers. The future looks good.
You're very kind Bo, but I'm afraid that what I've been doing to this poor old machine is somewhat
of a miscalculation:
I've turned this 70 years old thing into a (relatively seen) over-inflated drag-racer.
Moen with is expansive INDIAN experience and knowledge
and 'Speedy' ( the dyno-guy) with his decades of tuning American twins experience
and the machinist who did the crank and stuff on my engine, with his vast experience
of building and re-building highly tuned Americana V-twins
ALL tell me that I will bring a new meaning to the term 'blown' INDIAN if I run with such
a high boost as I do at present, so today I've been frantically working to
find, and to arrange to fit new blower cam-wheels and belts to get the boost down
and find and fit new drive-chain sprockets to get the RPM's down.
My heartfelt gratitude and thanks go out to
my dear friend Jakob :
who will do the work on the pulleys.
To 'Speedy' of Basement Performance
for patiently dyno-testing my bike, give lots
of good advise , doing it at a VERY favorable price
and generally being just a great guy
To the brilliant guys at Engelbrecht Construction who swiftly, this morning,
ordered all the parts I needed, and will do the work on the sprockets to make them fit my bike.
Thank you Anders, thank you Per and thank you Kim !
Last, but not least, thanks again to Moen at Indian Parts Europe]
for patient, invaluable help and assistance.
I owe you all...BIG time !!!
I hope to, one day, pay you back, in some way !
