Spring is on the way
Probably a while away yet for you but it's coming.
You can get a week out of it? I'm lucky to get ten minutes into the next job when my garage looks like a F4 tornado went through it..... I can loose an allen key in my hand.....
Got some new grommets in Friday. And also got the flu also. So that killed any weekend progress. But as soon as I get a 5/8 drill bit I can fix my frame hole sizes and get back to wireing.
I also tore into my girlfriends CRF150R this weekend, lubing the rear suspension linkage and whatnot. Still have to grease the steering bearings and chainge the oil this week and that will be done. Gotta finish that project before I can get back to the BSA.
Then have to squeeze in the YZ250F teardown/lube. And Im sure my KTM needs simillar treatment. And like was said above...spring isnt too far away......
And this project is supposed to be the cure for .."wintertime madness"
You mustn't get distracted by these other, lesser machines. Teach your girlfrend to maintain her own machine, haven't you heard that sexual equality is all the rage and works both ways. Where's the "hide behind the wall" smiley on this forum?
Yea yea yea... I know.. its just that the dirtbikes are such a huge part of who I am it wont ever be supressed. Im a dirtbiker thru and thru. LOVE woods riding. Tight nasty single track is my passion
Girlfriend actually does want to learn how to fix her own bike. Problem this weekend is that flu I had....guess who I gave it to when I got rid of if??? Yepper....hence why I was hiding in the shop...
You must be flavour of the month then That's the wall I was looking for
Any progress yet??? :ddog
Perhaps the flu was more serious than usual. More likely he's squirming around the backwoods somewhere on slimy single track. Or thinking up more excuses
You guys know me waaaay too well Did 40 miles Saturday. Trails were a disaster from all the downed trees and rubbish from the winter. Maintance crews havent been out yet. It was awsome. Over,under or around was the game of the day. Im all scratched and bruised. Back is killing. But loving it.
But your right I havent done anything. I have the wires ran thru the frame. Pretty much have all my wireing sub assemblies done. Just need to do the main connections to the ignition box. Add the ends and connect up in the headlight. And wire in power from the stator and ignition pickup.
Buy you know how life gets. Spring is here. Lots and lots of yard work needs to be done. I cant seem to find a spare minute lately.
But I PROMISE. Ill sneak an hour in this week just for you guys and post up some new pictures. Ill try and the the ignition panel wired up.
I knew you weren't as bad as everyone was saying
Thought I better quote you before you deleted it
Well I did get some work done this past week. Not as much as I would of liked bit some. I did a little wireing on the ignition modules. Its not much but its something. Needs to be cleaned up a bit yet.
Just been so busy with spring yard work lattely.
Bump, baby. The yard work will wait. I'd rather watch you work on the bike than ride that mower in circles.
Bob yer mower. We're waiting for pics!
But I just got a new mower... Its a John Deere even... Just needs the 20hp V-twin Briggs rebuilt...how hard can that be? I got a big work bench... there is room on there for another project isnt there?
and just as I think about rebuilding the lawn mower motor.....
Dude- you have a bad case of PADD- project attention defecit disorder.
(quote from ad) "Has Been used in a racing mower but for only 3 hours of ridding and hasn't damaged it at all."
Sounds like fun to me!
I've been wiring stuff to other stuff for 30 years, and I always liked the coily pig-tail look for the spaghetti you can see.
Then again, I might be a bit OCD too!
My humble opinion is it looks good.
Great bike man.
And the new mower motor is sitting in the garage. Picked it up Sunday for $100. Cant wait to tear the motor out of the Deere now...yea I know I know... P.A.D.D...
Great build! Just read through everything. Can't wait to see a video of it running!
Where did you get those wires? It seems from the photos like they're covered in woven fabric? A nice detail.
Yep they are cloth covered wire. Very vintage looking. Got it from www.lowbrowcustoms.com
They also have plug wires to match. I went with MSD wires though.
New pervert here. Er somebody said numbers matching machine is worth restoring? Not too keen on "power egg" looks
but do like cafe brat look plus less loot to get mobile, any body got any input? I have basket case engine, frame,minus front wheel assembly and fork tubes ???
