Thank you kindly. I'm a long way from being a master.
But this is how to get there, right? Jump in with both feet and build something.

The admins have temporarily made it possible for me to edit my old posts. :beerchug:
I'll be working on new photo links. The first page of this thread is done.

EDIT: Done! :ro):nail:

How do you like the air/water intercooler? Ever done any measurements to see what kind of temp drop you are getting?

Since this machine will never tow anything heavy I'm not convinced it's really worth the extra plumbing and complexity. I don't have any temperature data. But WTH it looks cool :bigglasse

Unfortunately, I seem to have one cylinder pumping oil out the exhaust :(. I can't pull the head to take a look without pulling the motor which I can't do without first pulling the transmission and everything else. So, it looks like this project is going to stretch on for quite some time.

Yuck.

You sure that chain is strong enough? Jeesh.
I didn't have any wimpy chain on hand.


You might think the engine hoist in overkill as well...

I bet that motor outweighs that bike by A LOT!

I don't think I posted a photo of my engine hanger. It keeps the weigth of the motor from twisting the motor mounts too far. Also allows me to temporarily tilt the motor to make it easier to install the transmission.

Is that support beam just resting on the (fiberglass!) fenders?

Yes, it's where the outer fender and inner fenders connect together. There's a lot of strength there, a lot stronger than if it was just sheet metal.

Fiberglass in a bend or corner is extremely strong. Flats not soo much
