THAT is spectacular work Buzz, you are “lightyears” ahead of me in your approach to detail… If I may suggest, the intake tracts seem to adopt a different approach to your usual theme, do you concur ?But irregardless (sic), I reiterate that there should be…Kiwi Roy for electrical.Canuck 750 and Charlie for restorations.Roper for mechanical instruction.Beard, Meinolf and Beetle for maps and tuning.Daniel Kalal for touring advice and example.Yourself for “ground up” builds….
You sure don’t sit still! Again I am just amazed with your fabrication skills, second to none. I really enjoy studying your posts, there is so much I can learn from your work.
I have made a few similar Hall Effect ignition pickups in the past and they have worked brilliantly...
... Although we have three kids and two granddaughters they are not interested in what I do, so I don't have anyone to pass my skills onto, hence I blog about it I like to fabricate things... not just bikes! a couple of years ago my wife asked for a BBQ... and fire pit...
Wow, even the electrics are custom. Are the pickups also from Ignitech, which you installed into the hub you fabricated? I like the heat sink fins.You can teach me! I will relocate to England for a few years. I could sleep in your shop, keep the bikes shiny...Seriously, blogging and video tutorials are a great way to spread the wealth. Thank you.
I like your choice of colour on the great bikes you build. Have you ever thought of building a Laverda special? Orange is the perfect colour for a Laverda. With your exceptional skill set the result would send the Laverda guys drooling.
One of my first ever restorations was a Jota... that's where my love of Orange and silver came from!Way back in 1980 I bunked a day off work and went to the Laverda importers, Slaters in Bromyard. He tossed me some keys to a Jota and said "I am off for some dinner, don't come back for two hours” Well I was hooked, but couldn’t afford it… So I looked around for a tatty one and found one for £300! Those were the days. I restored it and had 30 years of pleasure from that bike!Soon after it was restored I popped in to see Richard Slater on the bike, and he commented on the paintwork, and said he needed a tank and body work painting urgently… He asked if he could have the tank and bodywork off my bike! So we took it all off, put on a brand new tank and panels and I rode off! I did lots of paint jobs for him subsequently…One other story is I went one day and he was moaning that the factory had no footrest plates… he had quite a few bikes off the road and customers were complaining… He gave me some broken plates ( they broke when the bike fell over) and I took them home…I welded the parts together and fillered them until they were to shape… I then sprayed them with polyester spraying filler to increase the size by 1/77 which is how much cast alloy shrinks. I then cast some up in a sand mould and machined them up! He was over the moon! I sold probably 100 sets over the years…On the back of the casting I always put TL… When I see a Laverda I always look to see if there are my plates on it! I have found two so far!Thats me in 1982 in Spain on the Jota!
I have given it a good thrashing and all is now well!
