    Anyone know of or have a link to a supplier with copper head gaskets for 80cc/8mm? The aluminum ones are ok I just would rather have a copper one.

    I used the old one as a pattern and bought 3 dollars worth of copper sheet it was easy.

    How did you get the small holes cut and the inside of the main cylinder hole smooth?

    I used gasket punches for the small holes. For the cylinder hole i roughed it out with tin snips than ground it with a small stone in my dremel tool followed by a sanding drum. After it was completed I annealed the copper to get any work hardening out of it.
