Engine Turning

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.
