    I had a visit from Dove on here ( my ex sidecar passenger) to give me a hand taking up slack on the jibs of the mill ( I watched) so we decided to give the mill a test run and machine the cylinder heads to straighten out the inlet track and make stubs to suit the Dellorto carbs. Don't fret the carb is 180 deg out!

    I headed down to Darlington yesterday to pick my outfit up from the fibreglass works, here is one reason why not to use a propane heater in your workshop, the chassis is covered in rust. Just as well he did a good job altering the seat and arch.

    You should have given it a coat of primer first I wouldn't think that propane heaters and fibreglass resin fumes would be a good mixture either - a potential to go BOOM

    The chassis shall be blasted and powder coated after a complete dry build so hopefully all the rust maggets shall be removed. No time spent on the bike over the holidays due to being in Ireland at the outlaws, I managed a couple of hours this afternoon though. Inlet track machined and new stub to take a Dellorto carb welded in place, having to use a short bell mouth as the right hand cylinder sits further to the rear.

    Still on the dry build before paint, i put together a dummy motor over the weekend and mounted the exhaust that came with the bike but it looks as if it will be a little hot under the kneeler.
    On measuring the header lengths they are not in the same post code so have ordered a 180 deg bend and I shall make up a nice stainless 2 into 1 system which will give more room under the seat.

    A little bit more progress on the front end, I have made the trail adjustable by slotting the pivot point and welding blocks either side.
    I have made plates to fit inbetween the blocks with holes at different spacing enabling me to draw the pivot point further in giving more trail .

    Front end nearing completion with adjustable ride height. I looked at getting a piece of AS 516 plate to machine up a disc but this was prooving to be too much of a pain and was priced 120 for a laser cut blank. I managed to find a couple of Citreon discs new delivered to the door for 12. A half hour on the lathe to bore out the centre then take down the dia, lastly onto the mill to bore the mounting holes, hey presto a nice new spanking disc at 6 each.

    I have been speaking to a few folk about the oil delivery and found that the early engines were prone to cavitation. To make the best out of the oil supply issues so I can rev to 8k plus the scavange has been opened out to 12.5mm the main oil feed from the cam shaft bush housing to the back of the main bearing housing was also opened out to 8mm .
    The oil pump rotors were slimmed down by 4mm to reduce the flow rate a new pump end plate was machined (cheers Dove) with a 4mm spigot on the rear to take up what was removed this all helps increasing the pumping efficiency. Sump baffle made also as this is in a sidecar and not a solo.
    I Had top make a spring compressor as well, I have to fit restrictors to reduce the damper stroke and being 30mm long there was no way I ould have forced the spring down that far to get the buggers in. Kinlochleven wont happen for me this year work has got in the way and have finally run out of time.

    Finally recieved my seal and gasket set for my Dellortos after a 4 week wait all to save 7.00 rebuilt with the correct jets and anti surge washers on the main jet holder, float needle valves, short bellmouths and lever choke. I stopped short of new needles and slides as it was fast approaching on a new set of carbs

    They were in stock when I ordered them but had also ordered a Brembo (style) mastercylinder which was on a seven day delivery from order. Stupidly I said just send them all together to save them on postage. You learn !!

    One for the gadget folks! the digital multifunction guage arrived for the outfit along with the drive. This is connected into the gearbox revcounter drive then calibrated to wheel size. A much better solution than picking up a magnet on the front hub as there is too much happening on that front end. All that I can find on the drive at the moment as I did not receive any litrature for the drive. https://www.schweizerschrauber.ch/mot/ps-a.en.html

    One step forward three back, Snowball affect yet again.
    I could not find a starter for the Bike as this was from an early model and had only 9 teeth compared to the later which has 12. These are modified Toyota units as BMW no longer make them.
    One source was wanting 300 which I was not willing to pay but eventually found a new one for 78. When I was doing the dry build I found that the starter was touching the top tube or within a mm. Moving the motor inboard was what I though would be a solution but this caused problems with the drive even although it had a uv joint. The other problem was it was impossible to remove the oil filter withought tilting the motor. Last Saturday morning I attacked the back end with a grinder so new position for the motor and a better looking swing arm mount in order.

    Finally made progress,it's a roller! I feel a lot happier with how I have done the back end instead of the flat plate gussets that were on originally. I also managed to get all the Lockheed calipers mounted as well, next brake pedal and master cylinders with bias adjustment. I'll post a pic when the kids decide to share the internet.
