    I was trying out some engine turning on my new kit from Dax. This is a 65cc econo kit on an old bike someone gave me, I will do the paint and the like later. I am going to use a drop down tank, and some comfort bars. Let me know what you think? Have fun, Dave

    OK I will list all the improvements so far. The engine is the Dax 65cc, I ported it all the way, thats raising the exhaust, more than it was from Dax, and they are using the 1.1" from the deck, the 1.1 is excellent is I just can't leave anything alone. I lowered the intake port 1/8" and removed the webbing from the scavenging ports. I am going to use a carb from a Honda, it is a 18mm butterfly carb, it will probably be on a Reed valve intake. I don't think I will use an air cleaner I want to use a Velocity Stack. I know it will take miles off the engine, but it looks soooo track racing. I think I am going to use the reeds from an outboard Evenrude. I advanced the ignition timing a full 10 degrees. I am going to use the drop down tank from Dax and make some panels to disguise it to look like one of the classics. I am going to make a springer front end out of two pares of forks, the second pare I will split the top tube and add the springs on the inside, something in the old Harley stile. I want to extend the bottom forks in the rear to give it a lower tracker look, and the paint I have not decided yet. What would you like to see? any ideas? I want to get a tubing bender and have some fun later, I will keep you posted. Have fun Dave
    PS: The pics are the before and after porting the web out of the Scavenging port, and the other is one way to increase the port timing.

    Rat Roder - Yes you guessed it. I did a full key, but I think that is a bit much. I think I will cut it down to half a key. I made a filler to keep it from slipping, and remember the engine rotates opposite of the wheel rotation. Is that avatar your car? I have a 29 Ford Roadster sitting on a 27 chev chassis, been in there for 20 years. Have fun, Dave
    PS: Can you see it in there, poor thing.

    I think it is a Pacific, that is what is on the grips. It has been around the shop, so I decided to put a happy time engine in. The frame is large, that is how the tank fits. A smaller frame would not work, as it is the fuel stop is close to the carb. I got the tank from Dax. Have fun, Dave
    PS: I have to keep the seat down so that I can reach the pedals.

    Took the bike out for a ride today, what a perfect day in So. Cal. Was a little warm but kept moving. Went out to the Queen Mary and along the fishing wharf. I took the advance out of the motor timing, I did not like the way it ran. It would not run slow any more. The engine is breaking in nice, I gave up on trying to get the engine to speed up, now I want to see how well it will pull and run slow. I think it will take a few weeks to run the tank out of fuel. I got a flat at the end of the day but I was near the shop so it was OK. I am having a hard time figuring out a color for the thing. I am thinking of British racing green! but I need a contrasting color for a panel and striping. Have fun Dave

    Hello Egor

    Your bike looks nice, I really like the under bar tank. In my opion it looks so much better than the top tanks.

    Very nicely done sir! Yes AZ, I think tan or cream accents, like an old Norton would be just the thing there...

    Went riding with my new helmet, what do you think. I found it floating in the river, disinfected it and ready for a new life. At least I did not find it in the Tip. Can you guess where I am! And what is that Ship in the background? Don't cheat looking at my Home 20. LOL. It was a beautiful day.

    looks like a floating hotel/convention center to me
    oh ya, they called it 'the queen mary'
    I took a tour on it many moons ago

    I must admit, if I didn't recognize her, I would have looked at your locale
