    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.

    Original Valves prior to touch-up.

    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... :eek1

    Have you ever thought of a ride to Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska?

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

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

    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. :D

    Was looking at the remains of the GSPD just this afternoon. :huh A full frame-up restoration is required and it's going to be a while before anything happens with that bike. The Oilhead swingarm/final drive is the least of it's worries; that's going to be pretty straight forward.

    I'm basically between garage/workspaces, and it's only the good graces of friends like Bino that permit me to get anything done at the moment. Just rescued my valve grinding machine earlier this afternoon from the basement construction site where it'd been left to fend for itself these last few years. Still not sure where my valve seat cutters got to... :patch

    Remains? Did it get in an accident or something? Did I miss something?

    No, not an accident or anything like that. The bike was parked after being ridden through a Southern Ontario winter - complete with water, salt and snow. Got busy for the next little while with family and new arrivals and the like and the next thing you know it was a rusted mess. Then tore it apart to remove another wonky driveshaft and what I suspected might be a finally expired transmission... then got sidetracked again.

    It's going to need to be stripped down to the last nut and bolt and refinished to bring it back to presentable, rideable, serviceable condition. I'll do the suspension mods at the same time.

    Nah, this is what you need...

    Well, I think this option would be more appropriate, reflecting your advanced age, your lovely wife and of course, I see Gerry in the sidecar....

    The King and Queen....ta da....:rofl

    Jane and I are finished with it so.....

    Just send me the Corbin and we'll be even......:rofl

    Oooops...wait a minute, think the King and Queen is /7 size:cry

    Good to know you've got my six, Roberto. :patch :rofl We'll just hang onto that seat until I fall over something more appropriate. :brow

    We need a little shiny around here after all this rust and corruption... This is the stuff that's going in the S2 Buell.

    Look at those freeking lobes. :huh

    There's some 1250 Nikasil barrels, too, but they wouldn't fit on that old wooden crate without risking a major catastrophe.
