The Birth

The Magura throttle is a pull throttle so we made a little lever arm to flip reverse it.  Although the arm isn't really that little at the moment.  But the different holes will allow a choice of throttle response and then it can be cut down. 

 That'll do, pig.

 Poor man's generator

Decided to see if the thing might fire.  Tony wasn't there so I was kinda bricking it.

I actually forgot to prime it but on the third kick there was a splutter from the engine

4th kick

Guess who taught himself to weld?  Kids, set your flame right, not too much oxygen and don't destroy it with an angle grinder when you can use a file.

Fifth kick muddafucka!

Romance of Rust

I was only ever going to make a mess of removing the cancerous growth from the WR tanks so the job was entrusted it to a proper surgeon.  Popular opinion was that Lance down at Romance of Rust is better than the Mayo clinic and he kindly agreed to roll up his sleeves.

There's an actual Hetchings in there!  Look closely and you can see the trademark curly rear stays on the bike behind.

The good doctor himself

This was so mangled it was rubbing the primary chain. Now it's pancake flat.

This is all new, except the tabs.  He even mimicked the wrinkles and the sloppyness of the welds.


On the right is the cancerous part that he cut out.  Used to leak faster than a blind lesbian in a fish shop.

The baffles on the inside.  All perfectly copied by Lance, naturally.

Extend your forks the hard way

Look carefully at the sliders.. mental mental, chicken oriental.
