    Riveting two worn friction plates to a steel plate makes for a really good clutch holding tool. I know, timing is everything.

    I do like a laser cut number, just adding to basket is easier than riveting oily old plates :smile6

    I'm just a cheap skate. But if you need to torque a clutch boss nut right now and don't have the tool it will get you out of a pinch.

    Spoil little Haurice? Never, he just eats what I would eat.
    Bikes, now that's a different matter.
    This just in from the guy who runs LCcrazy shop and forum http://rdlccrazy.co.uk/html/for sale link page.html
    Some delicious M8 dome nuts in titanium for my head, a pair of go faster banshee coils, a lovely little tuning fork oil pump blank, a laser cut clutch ring (for see through covers, it's the law, you have to cut the clutch cover open and fit Perspex) and some hard to find Yam bits. Ironically it all came packed in a cat food box, Horace looked disgusted at the very sight of it :bash
    No work today, wedding and beer :drink

    OK I am in, I love engines that need magic to run.

    I was at the Indy Mile in 2009, I saw that ride live. WOW!

    I would hope that noise is burnt in to your eardrums, I've watched that video many times. To me that would be the ultimate 'I was there' moment. I take it you will have it on your tombstone?

    I spent a very hung over hour and a half tapping out threads and cleaning up bearing/gasket faces today (still not finished!) but I couldn't resist a mock up....

    I'm going to try this for the top case, I've not used it before but it gets great reviews. My last big 2T motor I built I got the blasters to do the cases in polyurethane which was excellent but they f#cked up some nice cnc machining on my Metisse triples so now I use a young lad who's local for blasting and I'll paint them myself.

    I used to watch the TZ750 Formula 1 road racers at Road America (Elkhart Lake WI for those across the pond) in the early 1980's. Couple places you are real close to the track. They make an unholy wail, forever burned into your memory. If I ran across one already modded and plated, I would sell my soul for it.

    I too have watched the video many times. That's where I learned the crazy bastid hopped on and busted off them hot laps with no practice.

    ETA if I had known then what I know now, I would have been there in 1975.
