Just been told the crank cases won't be ready for another 3 weeks, bugger. So I'm going to press on and send the cylinders off for work. They are damaged 1000 cylinders (see below) and the only saving of them is to cut out the damaged liner and open up the cylinders to accept 1200 liners. In reality 1200 Laverdas are actually 1116cc. 2019-01-27 09.33.02 by Grant Duguid, on Flickr I'll also strip the forks and send off the stanchions for hard chroming on Monday. Hopefully by the time the cases are ready I will have everything I need to finish the engine, and by then I hope to have the rest of the bike ready too. Ambitious target but I am aiming for it being ready by first day of the riding season.
