Two honda 90s  The stretched one is hopped up and it is fast enough to go on the freeway.  The other one is in Gulf race colors.  The owner has a matching car to use when the weather is bad and he cannot ride his bike.

A Matchless-Norton and a Norton.  One has a doll's head gearbox, as I recall.  A significant number of Pacific Northwest racers rode Nortons.

Nice metal work on this Ducati.  Bones.  There a rat bike phenomenon just like the rat rod one.

This guy does his wiring just like me.  This truck brings back memories.  It was simple days when a race team worked out of a transit van.

An Alaska bike.  The other BSA is Rose's favorite.  It is a C15, I think.  That is all for today.  The multi cylinder bikes will be posted tomorrow.

Twin cylinder engines now.  This is a Yamaha 650 with minimalist bodywork.  The frame is either stainless steel or Ti.

Normally these are single cylinder engines.  This is two of them mated to be a v-twin.

Rat bike.  This seems to be a passing fad.  There are fewer of them on display this year.

A six cylinder Kawasaki drag bike.  That is it for the pictures I have.  It is a very small sample of everything there.

The newest version of the Triumph crankcase bolts were ordered and they arrived.  I knew about them and did not use them for a reason.  They are poorly designed with a wide and shallow recess for a torx drive.  It is possible to install them without stripping the torx openings.  They also can be removed if care is used to make sure the torx bit is always perpendicular to the bolt face.  Maybe one time.  Repeated removal and installation after that is dependent on the alignment of the planets and pure luck.

The work I was doing requires a few assembly-dissassembly cycles.  Bolt heads were welded onto the bolts so a hex socket could be used.  The bolts are magnetic stainless, either ferritic or martenisic.  The bolt heads I welded on are austenetic.  It worked.  They have not broke off after a few put-together take-apart cycles.
