組み立て組み立て CB160 Racer

This and that.
Finished a lot of little things.

 I'll be alright on these tires, right?

 Those eyes.
Soo guilty.

I need to get some aluminum for the rear sets and order more stuff tonight...
Should be able to ride it in the alley Saturday sometime.

CB160 Racer Carb Carnival

They are always easier to tear apart than they are to put back together.
.......holes in float bowls......faulty choke systems...ruined rubber gaskets......
Didn't order rebuild kits because I was thinking it could be a waste since the money would be better spent on a new set of Mikuni carbs...if it comes to that...
....come on Keihin, prove me wrong.

 A polished turd is still a turd?
Let's hope they still got the vroom.
MidOhio patches found!

CB160 Racer Compression and Carbs

Stealing from the dead.

To save a life.
 Could be better?  I will run.

H&F ultrasonic = light buzzing sound and slight shaking with brackish results

Interesting fix you got there jim-bob.
 These were cow farm dirty.
Cleaning carbs in the kitchen is ok, right?
Moyou does NOT like the ultrasonic buzzing....

CB160 time

  I've had this in the garage for a few months....I've wanted to start on it for a long time but had so many other things to get out of the way.....kind of like saving the marshmallows for last when eating lucky charms.......anyway.  
I don't know if I will ever actually see a race track with this or any other motorcycle.
But this is my attempt.

It has finally begun.  

Oil drain plug is stripped but these engines have a removable drain plug plate.  
I can tap or just steal one from one of my other160 engines.
