Thanks MaxPower, I am pleased with how she has turned out. Had a little blockage in the pilot circuit in the carb but once that was cleared she fired up nicely this afternoon. Yes, these engines have two plugs, and both fire

Well, here she is, all I need to do is fit the rear mounting bolt of the exhaust and the oils into the gearbox and clutch. Hope you like it. Should start her up in a day or so. Future jobs will be to replace (or rechrome) the kickstart and gearlever

I was going to replace them with Renthals, but then had a change of heart as the bend is actually pretty good and they suit the bike very well. I did trim a little off each end because I found them too ... more »

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Mr Mendenhall? I have been trying to contact him for a few days to resolve an issue and he is not responding. I assume he is still in business? Any information appreciated, thanks
