  1. Took this thing for few hoons lately its finally running pretty good again ive gone back to roughly a 50:50 mix of ethanol and petrol the carb just couldn't suck enough fuel through on E85 to let it rev out. Ive also stuck the external carb bits through the ultrasonic cleaner at work which rattled out plenty of chunks of shit (mostly lead) It now starts runs and revs out nice again. I changed the exhaust a bit to a 1 1/2 slash cut end to help it exhale a bit better which has doubled the noise it makes as well.

    Chris's Lloyd 600 50s Drag Bike

    Run an SU on it. 1 3/4" seems about right on my 600 it just opens as much as it needs to.

    Bummer about the ute. If it doesn't sell ive got the diagnostic gear to go through the body modules so at least you could dig a bit further.

    My vy sedan weighs around 1600kg on the tip weigh bridge. Cant imagine a ute would be very different in weight. Carby conversion would backdate an LS to small block screwdriver tuning.

    Diesel mileage on a motorcycle a thing or has that been missed? 18hp will get along nicely if you fit a torque converter.

    Re Chrome Alloy Wheels

    You could get them ceramic chromed by HPC or Pro Coat finish is very similar to your spray chrome above but is really durable.
  10. Could you make a feature of the spark plug leads ? Make it look extra hemi.... with a pentastar chucked in the middle.
  11. I also sorted some adjustment for the jack shaft so no need for the chain tensioner anymore looks way nicer and fitted nice new chain. Did burnouts...... needs a tune again bloody race fuel.
  12. This thing has been a bit of an ornament lately as ive tried to sell it had a few people look at 1 rode it and came back white as a ghost shaking....... he decided his son would be be better on something a bit more shall we say docile. So on to repairs and fine tuning things, the chains were fucked and since i fitted the new back wheel out of alignment by about 5mm i ripped it all apart and set it all up nicely so the wheel just slips in. This meant spreading the rear frame i just jammed a jack in there and it didnt fight much. I had to sort the rear brake caliper as the wheel now been centered and frame spread it had moved everything.
  13. Ive got to modify my turbo to work the way i want....... so i need to learn to weld alloy below is my learning curve in 4 welds literally never welded alloy with a tig before. Dude at work set tig up for me gave me some pointers haha then off loaded his days work welding cable trays to me. Ive now started amassing AN fittings as we run them on some dangerous applications at work so they get used a few times and binned (still looking mint) and sweet to use on what i want them for.
  14. Truth be told i haven't ridden this since the above happened. Some aliexpress bits arrived this week so i thought i might as well fit anyway bit of tianium colored header wrap to prevent major jean destruction. Im toying with swapping the engines over with my sons mobility scooter beast as he loves this frame and has done some welding on it, he lives on a farm so could legitimately use it safely his 5hp Robin motor would work perfectly i reckon. I have acquired all the stainless steel parts now to do the turbo as well....... and sussed a cheap and cheerful way to run my carb blow thru for max ethanol spooly flame carnage
  15. It was a shit week for people on bikes last weekend. The guy i knew was my new boss I'd worked with him thru my last job he seemed to enjoy his job more than i was enjoying mine and helped me jump ship. He had just finished an awesome day off watching some racing heading home the long way no doubt he also went out having a ball on his new bike! If can sell this it will fund something new, projects i sell go in a pot for more new projects i might put a smaller motor on this and use the v-twin on something else.
