  1. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    Everything is now painted, trying to work out what the brake shoes are off so I can get new ones, rear shoes are missing otherwise I would get new linings bonded on.
  2. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I have painted the engine and frame + forks + tank.
  3. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I also picked up this hunk of shit, its kind of cool, home made with 6" rims and home made front and rear drum brakes, it would of had a Villers motor I think. I will change the rear sprocket to run a #420 chain and fit my high compression B&S 5HP. and a new paint job.
  4. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    Here are the trutest wheels, I am building them up then I will take a mold of them.
  5. BW 55 auto seems to be leaking fluid from somewhere, I did the sump gasket, but I think its coming from in the bell housing, it even empty's when the car sits around and is not driven. Should I dare to put in some seal conditioner?

    Yes dont remove that alloy plate untill you remove the carbs in one lot
  7. a.craw4d's CBR 250

    Must be a stuck float or dirty float needle valve? You have to be pretty brutal to get carbs off, pull one side up then the other, sometime you need a pry bar, and put some rubber grease on the boots when you refit them

    I have found it dose not really matter where the seam is, but schedule is important, I bent the frame on the red bike using a shitty pipe bender, its made from 27mm OD no problems with nice bends, just have to make sure its a nice fit in the swage
  9. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I have ground and filed the 3/4" swage to 7/16" its now a snug fit and supports the sides of the tube. The 1" swage should measure 25mm but it measures almost 35mm

    I am going to do everything in 7/8 on my frames, they will not be trutest copy's, but yes please tell everyone there will be wheels at some stage. It might cut through it, there is tremendous pressure
  11. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    The pipe I made the red bike out was 27mm with about a 3mm wall. I also filled it with sand. I have noticed with the swages for this bender it has the pipe size cast into them but the pipe is way too lose, I want to bend 7/8" and 1", I will take the swage that is the next size down and machine it so the next size up pipe is a tight fit if you know what I mean? With thees benders you should never expect good results with out modifying the swages or filling the pipe with sand
  12. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I have the lone of some TruTest alloy rims I am going to copy and cast, I am thinking I can pretty much make a frame for the cost of the steel and my time, the wheels will cost a bit to make but I already have a few people who want them,
  13. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I bought one of thees just now from a guy down the road for $100 brand new unused, I plan to make X4 normal size minibike frames with forks.
  14. Yes but its much older than the one in this pic^ and dosnt have mismatched pulleys Never use Dennis Carpenter gaskets for fucks sake
