      Final engine pieces arrived last week. The Long awaited Yoshi Valve Spring Kit. Comes with Titanium Retainers, Cotters 48 piece shim kit and springs of course.

      Motor is back together, cams dialed in perfectly.

      Refitting into frame will take place this weekend coming. On the road to a visual picture now, yeah !!


      The saliva is drooling and swirling in my mouth now - lololol. We're getting that much closer.

      A great feeling. Still have a long way to go though. After the motor goes in, its wiring, electronic timing, instruments, instrument brackets, new ignition barrel, locating the rear wheel, axle spacers to be made, new chain and sprockets, fit up of all the odds and sods, full extended braided brake lines front and rear, then onto the dreaded body panels for massaging and colour.

          Sent the motor off to Neil Anderson to give it a once over to ensure everything is everything. Looking for 105 / 105 lobe centres. He is checking all the work performed before install. Feel better that another pair of experienced eyes are looking. While thats happening, I spent the time drawing up some sketches, headed off to see my mate John, formerly of Draggett Engineering and got him to spin up some parts to mate the 2009 back wheel to the 1987 JMC Swinger properly.

          Using a std 20mm Rear axle spindle (Original ), 3 new 20mm bearings, the factory underslung rear brake caliper and a bit of panache'. it looks like this.























          Just need to pull it all down again, send it of to the powdercoaters, painters and do a rebuild kit on the caliper, and that end is taken care of. All good.

          Next please

                Started to install today. All I can say is its a bastard to line up by yourself.

                  Motor is finally in properly and bolted down. Wouldn't wish it on anyone to do it alone - - Can get about doing the other shit now

                    That's an awesome looking motor. If I got lucky at Lotto I'd get the Bandit's motor done in blue with the same silver trimmings.

                      • I thought something was up with the short headers you had on in the previous post

                        Seems all is now revealed

                          • Do I see a flange for a turbo on the end of those headers?

                            • I spent 10 hours today attempting to wire up the bike. WHAT WAS I THINKING !!

                              Nothing to report really. Got about half of it done before I flew off the handle..

                              At least the coils are fastened down tight -

                                Would it make too much of a difference to anyone if it were true ?
