Nice work, Terry, those rails look factory fresh. I'd like to hear more about how you peened the rivets. Did you pop rivet the end caps too?

glinty !
looking nice Voods! it actually was pretty manageable getting the rivets in (with 2 ppl) and SoCal's woodblock-shoulderpress method. yours look very well-done sir.


and thanks for all the re-assurance from all of you. this was a big foray into the dismantle-paint-reassemble arena and it worked out pretty well and we definitely learned a lot, as well as sorting out some stuff that was wonky on the scoot.

SoCal is about to tackle Ol' Yellow and just you wait and see how that one turns out!

Voodoo is the wizard of taking what otherwise might go to the scrap bin and making it look better than the reproduction part others replace it with.

I can attest to this... here are his engine stands. They also double as IV drip or beer sippy if you need it.

Thanks guys. I'm enjoying slowly doing the final little things on this one and it really hasn't needed too much but a good wash & the love rubs. I've had everything apart for clean & lube except the motor, still running on 1964 seals and it starts one kick hot or cold, runs well and has good power for a 90. So this is NOT one of those rusty wonders made from junk, baling wire & duct tape, but a quality bike with good bones and a sad dirty face when I got it.

On my list: I will be splitting the cases to install 4 speed gears and I hope to put on a more modern 3 port 100 Sport top end(expect to turn the cylinder spigot down to fit) with some port matching & new seals while I'm in there.

But that's for winter, now I'll finish the crude paint touch up on the worst rusted owies w/ rust converter brushed on first, rub it out to blend and ride this little guy. Oh yeah, gotta fix the bouncy speedo too but everything else works as it should.

Nope, just the hidden ones. I borrowed the little Piaggio beauty below which makes it easy to do the original type domed aluminum rivets right. The upper anvil fits the dome which locates it and the lower anvil w/ the waffle pattern you screw up tight to the tip of the rivet and then just squeeze.


If you want a perfect job this will do it
I welded the floor right next to the rivet & tested my paint there - still needs some hammer & dolly on that high spot


100 Sport top end and gears for the motor
The paint is a marine grade single part polyurethane enamel that buffs to a nice gloss


rust treated and paint daubed on

I might be slow, I might be ignorant of many things and I might be stubborn at times but when the proper tool is offered, I'm not stupid. A friend stopped by to borrow a CDI and when he saw I was gonna use screws for the end caps for now told me he had the tool I needed. Surprise!

Meanwhile I'm getting ready for the run to Mukilteo on Friday. Finally got a non slipping, non grabbing clutch in the green Sprint and new tires both ends. Some of us are riding up to meet the ppl coming in to the finish on the Cannonball Run. There'll probably be quite a crowd as there's a team from Seattle on Zumas. Expect to finally meet Scooter Raton and can't wait to see the machine that Absurd Ruse will be on(he's up & running again). There are a couple of other geared bikes that seem to be doing OK, should be interesting.

Got my P200 flywheel back from Fresno. Unfortunately Hot Rod Al moved and I used his old address. So tomorrow it's off to the post office to try again. At least they didn't deliver it to the old address.

I wound up using the crate motor. Had 75 miles on it with the 20/20 carb and 25 with the 2424.

It's tough to break in and dial in a motor on the CBR. It ran well but low torque. Fully stock except for exhaust.

I changed my goal from top 10 to finishing the entire run. The only problem I really had was a leaking fuel tap. Being the CBR...I let it leak for a day while Dave overnighted a new one.

To ride a bike that I put together that far in that short a time...I'm really happy.

Plus 11 straight days of riding, did the dragon again, and so many great roads. Saw many parts of the country that I had never been to before.

Time for bed now!

I will be posting on www.TeamScooterTrash and if possible please support the Petfinder Foundation.

Congrats to all the riders that made it all the way. I had to wait for a buddy to get off work and I got there about an hour after Raton arrived. He had already gone back north to the hotel in Everett for some well deserved rest and his crew with him, maybe tomorrow.

Just got back from hanging out w/ the Seattle bunch and some of the out of towners after things died down in Mukilteo and we went for beer. I'm sure there were some raised eyebrows among all the cars waiting for the ferry when all the animal headed creatures on scooters swept by on the way out of there.

LoL, we was outnumbered by two eyed Zumas ridden by a variety of wild beasts.

I got there too late to see anybody come in and the SOD guys on Zumas and their clubmates that were there to meet them were getting ready to leave for food & drink. I couldn't stay past one beer because previous engagement but I think other riders were expected at the bar later. So confusing there I figured I'd just get final results online at home but heard 2 shifties finished well.

The animal heads are actually modified helmets and, yes, I think some made the trip that way. I think if you can ride a Zuma cross country, you can put what you like on your head. These guys rock!

I finally got the carb dialed in pretty well on the Stella for the Malossi kit. I still don't think it's that great a kit, but it'll get me to the train and back.

Trusting it'll work for a while, I started replacing the bent fork on my VBB after years of just riding it that way. I have a Super fork that I can modify, but then I discovered while looking for a new caged bearing for the new fork that SIP now have 8" Bajaj forks that are (looking at the picture) a proper replacement fork, so I need to decide if I want to spring for that or stick with the American Bodge approach.
