Making small detail parts into bigger assemblies... Got the Ceriani forks and triple clamps polished up, cleaned and reassembled. Original Mikuni carb was disassembled and cleaned / glass beaded, then cleaned again. Loosely assembled and masked off. Then was painted gloss black as it was on these Yamaha RT2 engines back then. Started installing the smaller carb parts, but want to clean the brass in Hoppes to remove any 50 year old mung in the jets. Even got the rear shock bodies painted. These will be period correct Yamaha Thermal Flow rear shocks with a period correct Trick It revalve kit installed.
Again, small parts becoming larger assemblies. still a lot to do, but every completed task is a bit closer.
I like your repurposing of the stand.
And the forks look good too.
Guess you mean the Park Bicycle Stand. Only used it for hang parts after I sprayed them behind the neighbors fence. Also seemed good for holding the fork while taking pictures. All the work on the fork was done in the vice with Race Tech jaws.
1956 engine maybe? No 1956 Rickmans.
Nice bike in need of a lot of TLC but he is asking the moon for it.
Hope he gets it!
$9800US, about the price for a standard Venom here so high for a modified bitsa.
As I'm missing this more than a little so I share a blast last summer.
Hey @JagLite , did you do any videos of your machine either on board or not? Is there a spring Alsakan start up video on the way?
Sadly no, I haven't made any videos, but I will try to remember to shoot a spring start up video, that's a great idea.
Check back in two months.
as you have demonstrated, production values matter.
I can hear your intake gobbling but the rest of the noise is knives and forks in a thresher. Move the mic and more basso please.
Wildebeest, thank you for the ride-along. Boy-oh-boy, as complicated as the road markings are I don't think I would have ever made 16 years old. And a drainage ditch half way across the lane. You have to be on your game I guess.
Duly noted, I only just got the camera right at the end of last years riding so never got it sorted properly. Hopefully in a couple of months......
Meanwhile, sure this has been on here before but lets see it again, this guy can shift.
I have raced my Metisse MK 3A 500 Triumph for thirty years and without a doubt that video is almost like real life. A whiff of castor mixed with 112 octane, vibration, and the occasional clang of metal to metal contact and you have the full deal. Another good Metisse 500 video is "triumph 500 metisse onboard classic mx pre-65 dundrod". Cap opened. That happened to me at an AHRMA National Sandhill California in 1992. You wouldn't believe the shade of green that gasoline will make your sack. Taped down after that, every time.
Ha ha, I use 105 octane in all my bikes and that's green, is it dyed ? It does say 'not for road use' on the cans. I've not tried it on my nutsack yet but who knows what I'll get up to in the garage in the next month or so????
