Had to modify the new Polini manifold since the only one that exists and works with a PK engine - V50 frame combo is for a 30mm carb. We will be using a CP24. Cut the inlet, made a new smaller one on the lathe and pressed it in. Will have it welded by my machinist. Lucky me, I had an aluminum spacer tube from a GSX-R rear wheel that was exactly the dimension I needed. So, I didn't "waste" time on turning and drilling a solid chunk...

well, I'm certainly curious to see how all the motor parts turn out - though I suspect the answer is - very nicely.
Welding job on the manifold is the real deal.
Very nice.

This is looking really good, this style of 50 special is what I would get if I was to ever get a Vespa small frame.

While waiting for the paint, I started preparing a few things. Since we're going 12V, along with the cases, I also got a PK flywheel which was a bit "rusted" and heavy. I first hit it with a cheapo sandblasting gun I have, then turned it down to 1821g from the 2100g it was and also lapped it to the crank...

More to come...

Every time I see one of Chris's posts - I think: Man I use a lot of words.
Pictures are fab as usual Safis.
Work on this one is superb.
Still kinda excited to see what the plan with the motor color scheme is.

Is no one else going to mention the fact that the cases are being painted?
Love this.
Could be very cool.
Are you going to polish the clutch cover or other single components in aluminum to let them stand out?
Looking forward to the outcome.

Well, my initial thought was powder coat but when I asked around the quotes I got quickly changed my mind. Motor's getting a special paint for engine blocks so it's heat resistant. Never done it on a vespa motor but my friend has painted lots of engines, especially truck engines which is a common thing…

Totally understand! PC price adds up fast, especially with alot of masking. Car/truck/hotrod engines are painted all the time, so it sounds like you've got a good handle on it. Really enjoying your progress!

We all know how difficult is to adjust the gear cables on a smallie motor. Someone on FB posted a brilliant solution. Inline adjusters. But what do you do when they're out of stock, wherever you asked?? Dah!! You have a lathe, don't you?? STUPID little man!!

Found a hexagonal 8mm brass rod, 20 minutes on the lathe and presto!!

Just noticed your seam sealing job. Pristine!

How did you do it?
My friend did it. He uses masking tape around the seams…

Inside seams are done with a paintbrush…

Thank you. I thought tape might have been used. Tidy job.
