Yeah, we'll match the fairing stripes to the tin ones, not the other way around.

A most generous and agreeable plan. Jack can school Gerry in proper Thomas Tank Engining. He brings those things to bed every night....

Proper Tank Engining? You mean putting them in a sock and beating me with them? If you really want...
We have plenty more, don't buy any. Every time El Monstro finds another one he puts it aside for Gerry.

Scoopin' and Dumpin'...

Exhaust guide re & re on the R90/6 in Bino's garage. If it wasn't for Bino's garage I wouldn't get much done anymore.

The R90/6 and Bino's '88 RS.




Heads look good but the exhaust guides are tired.








Exhaust seat before touch up. New guides need to be fitted before you can dress the seats.




Guides new and old. Guides sourced from CC Products at SJBMW.




Original Valves prior to touch-up.




Home-made guide instalation drift.







Bino's '98 S3 Buell on the workstand.








Bino's vino added to the mix.





Will this /7 seat work on the R90/6.




Bino has no opinion.




He's got some good beer, though.







Hmmmmnn...






I'll be back later with some valve seat cutters...

There must be a way to move the hinge hardware rwd a bit no? Will it leave rear subframe hangin' out the back? Maybe a swb subframe?


Oh wait. I got a better idea. Cut a 2x4 sized hole in the gas tank at the steering head so you can slip a 2x4 in an bash the back side of the tank out to fit. That way you can get a nice tight custom fit and greatly reduce the ever present scrotum pinch danger. When you're done, just weld up the hole. No pesky hinge adjustments.


Did Bino have his butterscotch handy?

I didn't see it, but I get the feeling it's never too far away.

Just moved to Airheads? I thought it was here all the time. Well, welcome to (this part of) The Asylum. Eh.

Gazing around the shop, I spy lots of interesting things upon the walls...

Would love to see Prince of Wales Island some time. Can you ride there or do you need to take ferries.

This thread got lost in the "Old School" shuffle when "Airheads" broke off and went rogue.

That happened to me once when I was three years old. The family was coming back from the mountains or the beach and we had to stop and change cars late at night. I was soooo sleepy I crawled under one of the cars and went back to sleep. They didn't miss me till they got home but I was sitting in the cop station by then enjoying ice cream.

Whatever happened with the oilhead rear end for your GSPD? I want to see someone else stumble through that minefield and document it before I try it.
