Gotta love going in to buy bearings and seals for ya obscure 2 stroke motor that was built on 1/12/1960 in Germany and they're 'off the shelf' items.

oh the brake cable accelerator cable was me.

It did have a twist grip, but it broke at the Drome and I needed a quick fix

 

Have fond memories of buring up my leg on this pretty bad while drunk at Otaki Forks

 

I need me more two strokes

So before bits stopped holding hands was it a ok runner?

Just hoping I'm not wasting time and foldies.

Although saying that it all looks good on the inside (apart from the obvious LOL)

Yeah sure it ran pretty good. just push start and lol away

besides when i was very drunk and added like 100mm to much 2 stroke to the mix, then it wouldnt start

 

was not fast tho.

But tire size might have been a factor

Plus I'm not a small dude

Progress is slow (Livin' on the slopes of a mountain in the middle of winter isn't conducive to shed work LOL)

 

BUT, it is progress none the less.

 

Hope the step son knows how to ride a 3 wheeled skateboard hahahaha.......................

looking rad! FYI in my experience rollers like that add a shitload of noise, wear, power loss and unwanted junk to movement of the chain, especially on the tight side like that. chain sliders/rub blocks work a lot better, straight line a million better. especially when you've only got 0.28Hp to start with haha.

Cheers man.

 

Yeah was thinking a "rub block" of some description.

 

Any ideas on sourcing such a thing?

Sadly the only way to successfully run a roller on the 'drive' (i.e. tension) side of a chain drive is to use a sprocket as an idler pulley. It will need to be running on an idler shaft with bearings. 

 

Love your project however, good to see a fellow convert of the electrolysis rust removal method.

Didn't work...pffffft............

 

I do have a deformed cap and 'filler neck now tho'.

 

I guess the cap was weaker than the seams AND the dents.

 

Off to find someone with one of these tomorrow.

There is also the option of pressurizing the tank with air and warming up the dents with a flame to pop them out, seen it done on 2 stroke expansion chambers.

Went out to chat to OS member 'Frosty' today about rims and spokes for the project (and all sorts of other general sh*t).

 

ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNND i returned home with these...............bad ass......Exactly what i needed.

 

Even more awesome was the fact he insisted i take them home, even tho' i said i wasn't in a position to pay for them right now.

 

Frosty goes to the top of my "GCs" list.
