Well thanks Pinto!




Test assembled the (not finished) engine
into the (not finished) frame to test a few things,
so took the opportunity to take a couple of shots:

















I was pleasantly surprised to learn that these modern gaskets (JAMES GASKETS)
are available for this here 70 year old girl:




There's a few gaskets I have to make myself; for the intake, blower-drive oil-seal housing etc.
They are not quite so sophisticated

A great looking bike................BUT you might want to rethink the location of the foot-pegs (foot-rests)

Octane 98,
  That's a nice carpenter's hammer you got there. And it does double duty as a ball peen hammer?

Naaaaaaaaa; if you're referring to the rules,
I'm running AMA-rules and this being a "A"-class frame
(Special Construction Class, as the frame is a one-of special )
the rule-book says:
 "..7.E.: Foot Pegs
Mandatory equipment, location of foot pegs is discretionary
.."

...where as the other classes have rules for minimum distance to rear axle.

Nope; it does service as a perforating-punch hammer.

No,  not referring to the rules regarding the foot-pegs.........only referring to the rideability of the bike......
Couple of years ago at the BUB, we had a Harley running with the foot-pegs in the same location............
barely worked on the course........but was no... on the turn-off and return roads........Hey, but it is your ride............Just a thought...."we have been there done that"...........................................................

OK, got'ya! Thanks Bak for sharing your experience !
You may very well be right about my set-up.

The position when sitting on my bike does put some strain
on my...erh....reproduktive organs.




I do plan on making a 'pillow' on the top-rail to rest my manly chest on.


We'll see when I get to test-ride it.

Hot.
I do intend to test it on the motorway
like on a very early sunday morning.
Better be careful though; if they catch you
running 30% over the limit you get a 'mark'
in your drivers licence. Three 'mark's and you loose it
and have to take the test again.
I have 2 'mark's.

I'm like a child just before Christmas.



Been doing small stuff, like this cover
covering an ugly hole left by the absence of any generator-drive




..and making more gaskets.
 Here's the hi-tech method for making a 'template







A friendly email exchange with Mr. tech-inspection Drew
let me understand that I couldn't run the late-Chief type of vents
on the primary and gearbox ( for the sake of not risking oil-mist to run down on the salt)
( RED arrows: )







..so bought a couple of fuel-filters with a VERY tight-knit brass-'mesh'
that will catch the oil-mist a let it flow back to where it belongs




..and altered them slightly and put them on the old vent-mount/bolt




Yes: small small stuff.......but goodness there's so much small stuff to do




Ohhh yeahhhhh: got a batch of , if I may say so, rather cooooool
