LAMEco and Race for the wounded take on the 2013 Mexican 1000 for charity

LAMEco and Race for the wounded have joined forces.













So now I give you LAMEco/Race for the wounded.



We will be racing two bikes. Honzilla and A yamaha XT 500 ( formerly belonging to inmate grimmboy).

It looks like Honzilla will be the oldest bike in the race again. I have fitted some new rear shocks to Honzilla, and this time they are sprung correctly. Oh and the wheels are round now too!!


We have a few things to do and Honzilla will be ready to go. She will be a little quieter now due to the reworked LAMEco pipe, but not much.

The Yamaha just needed a few little things. I am in the process of getting a steering stabilizer for the blue bike. Parts should be done end of next week.



Let the fun begin.

-John

ps I am trying to get some shirts made, but in true LAMEco fashion it will be a last minute deal. Stay tuned.

It looks like you're 2/3rds of the vintage bikes so far. Is it a riders TBD thing or are you going to ride them both?

You are in and it looks like Chris will get some seat time as well.

In true vintage fashion one bike with LAMEco will not only be vintage itself but will have vintage riders too! Mr. Fast & Bronco Driver will be on the team making the aggregate age in the high 100's. We've got a ringer to make up for the old geezers hopefully. So John Sr. will be on the Yamaha & Jr. will head up Honzilla.

Hey Brett,
My Dad is coming and he is both a Baja Veteran and worker bee. He killed it last year when he chased the NORRA for us. If you need a lift we can pick you up on the way through SoCal. So far it's just me and him making the trek.

We can work all of that out when I get home, not sure what is going on with Vera yet. All I know is I NEED to get back to Baja

Baja withdrawal can be very painful.

I had a custom top clamp made, and picked it up saturday. I forgot to get a pick to post. It turned out great and will allow us to mount a scotts dampner to the xt.

I should have some pics in the next day or so.

Eek From an undisclosed location somewhere in Northern AZ

Here are some photos from the bowels of LAMEco Racing. Astute readers will note the absence of an engine in the TT500 (aka The Blue Nun!). We fired her up yesterday & it smoked pretty bad. So, out comes the engine for a quick tear down. The cylinder was full of oil. Two reasons. The rings had never seated & the valves were muy malo. The intake valve was tuliped. Now I've seen many an exhaust valve tuliped by heat but an intake? Must have been made in the Lowlands. This brings up a point that we at LAMEco learned the hard way. To state that our government is out of control is to berate the obvious. A few years ago the puke faces in the EPA required all of our motor oil mfgs. to eliminate zinc & phosphorus from our oil. Well, this is the stuff that makes an engine break in! Oil rings seat, etc. Consequently, if you don't use break in oil you're screwed. Also, take a look at the camshaft & you can see broken metal around the pin hole. Now folks at LAMEco maybe 1/2 assed but even we know that if you can see a defect or feel it with your fingernail you're screwed!! We will be installing a new cam. The piston is fine. We will re-ring it, hone the wall & use break in oil after assembly. The good folks at at R/D Spring in Hesperia are making us a new set of stainless steel valves. Additional note: Unpaid LAMEco staff & photo guru put these pics together & I'm too lame (being the flounder of LAMEco) to figure out how to put comments between the photos. So, take a look & if you have any questions just ask! One comment for our friends up in Oregon at OSR who have entered a 70 something CB550 in the Mexican1000. Luke, take a look at the cafe racer we built from one! Look at how vulnerable your points cover on the right is. Make it bullet proof Buddy!

Great report! Cool shop and even cooler bikes, each with a story to be told. Looking forward to visiting your shop in person some day, is that Owen with you?

Keep up the reports, good stuff and those nuggets of wisdom like why we need break in oil are helpful, thanks!
