  1. A couple of pics of an old bike I found on Trade Me recently. Crappy old Roadster with flat tyres? Nope! BSA Track Bike from the teens or 20s, with an awesome BSA Adjustable stem and original paint! Pine!

    Non cross-flow motors - what is out there ?

    Something from a van with a van box sounds like a good idea. 4y A15 12a Drill port.

    Operators aren't born like that mate. Plus. I have it on good authority that the guys at Barnsys love a good sharn, and all their small plant is Briggs and Stratton powered.

    You must know M series head torque and tappet settings off by heart. What a pain in the ass.

    Yeah sounds about right. Keep in mind that it will be dry as a bone inside. I'd pull it to bits give it a good clean and soak all the bits in oil then check it again.

    I just went and checked. It is a 25 spline center. I have included a couple of tools I made to test the break away torque.

    Just the carrier. I'm unlikely to ever need it as I can never be bothered to drive the car it would fit/your need is greater than mine.

    I'm sure it's 25 spline. I'll put it in the truck now and hand it over tomorrow night.

    I have a 25 spline LSD center you gave me years ago. I've been saving it for a rainy day, would you like it back?

    Bit of heat. Load it up. More heat. Belt the shaft of the puller.
  17. Welded in brace with all the middle cut out of it. Worth the effort.

  19. I predict that it will be like new lowered cars were in the past. very few people will be bothered arguing with heroic ranger guy, they will pass it and put it out side,

    Hey, sorry it took me a while to chime in here, this looks wild! Anyway, could you fit some good BMX forks to your frame to beef the front up and alter the trail a little? Otherwise what if you made a new frame, taking design cues off this frame but with a bigger size, made of heavier tube, with better wheels, and brakes. Maybe C90, or KX80 or something along those lines?
  21. You know who likes tall bikes? Tom likes tall bikes, that's who. Better build the wee scallywag one then. I'll get some more tube this week and try to have it rolling for next weekend.
