Waiting on the pony

Ready to ride?
Minus legal and a non leaking side cover.....?

Probably should put the cover on this...

Toolbox and tail light.

Garden is getting red.
Picked over 80 yesterday.

Used my pipe bender to make the side cover mountable on this Christina's C110.
Oil change and electronics check too.

Finally the white wall's come in.  Not the same tread that I ordered but at this point I just want to ride my baby dream so I don't care.......Tire night!
When I look at all the pictures from midohio, i get overwhelmed.....I will be creating a few posts for it.....sometime.

Pony problems <-> Backyard butcher

  Got up this morning thinking I could have this running in a few hours....

  The clutch mechanism in the stator case seemed fishy so I opened it up.....

The clutch mechanism was corroded.  
I thought I could clean it out and lube it up.....
but just ended up wasting over an hour to find out part of the case was corroded beyond repair.

The shift rod looked fishy......but it was fine.
I wanted to make sure the clutch basket was good too before I filled it with new oil.
So I opened up the other side........  
Clutch plates good.
The friction plates were a little rusty.
 I cleaned them up and put them back in.

This is what the clutch mechanism is supposed to look like.  
I am glad I have an extra engine.... 
Willie's XL350 race bike from out in Terre Haute saved me again.

It's a butcher shop out in the back yard today. 
I need a break...

Done for tonight.

Left is stock with about 3000 miles I think.....
Right has a big bore kit, was raced, and smokes worse than a Chris's Kawasaki triple.

Moyou couldn't figure out where the engine went.

Right before chopping the knob off for chain clearance. 

Night shot.

Riding around in the alley before sunset tomorrow?

Fish and chips

This was possibly the worst fake meat item I have ever eaten.
Ate about a fourth of it and that was just because the tartar sauce was soo good.
Masaru took a bite and gagged.
Fish and chips

Brake linkage

Moyou doesn't really care about this.....

....but it was what was keeping me from finishing the pony.
Can't feel safe riding unless your rear brake is legit, right?
This is a gsxr shifter linkage welded to the stock brake pulley from my XL350.
I am using a shifter rod out of another Suzuki engine to cross over the linkage to the left side.

Moyou helping out with the S65.

Relaxing under the hammock.

This work space has seriously changed my life.  
I can't wait to finish it off with a building.

Martinsville swap meet

Got my junk buying on but held back on a lot of stuff.

This is a C95 from Canada.  
It looks a lot like my CA95 Dream.

I want to make something nasty out of one of these someday.

Somebody beat me to making this thing nasty.  
I wonder when it was made....

Pups and Pigs

I got to hang out with some of my friend's children today.


Baby Zoey.

Grandpa Jackson.

Soo cute.
But kind of scary.
