So close yet so far! The bike runs like a champ, on the bench. I adapted a cool oil pressure gauge and have run the bike several times in three minute intervals to get everything settled in and happy. It sounds so lovely, a sweet mechanical chatter that just lets you know the internals are cooperating rather nicely one with another. First test ride coming soon!
Everything is coming together nicely. Primary cover installed after final clutch adjustment, ignition timing set, wiring tidied up and oil and lube in all the appropriate reservoirs. Carb mounted awaiting the air cleaner. Not much left to install, the exhaust and petrol tank, a bit of fettling and she should have her first taste of combustion tomorrow, time allowing. It’s tougher than I thought it would be to wear all the hats in this small business endeavour… But I wouldn’t trade this for anything!!
