    Started the motor for the first time today. It roared into life with relative ease. I soon realised it was starving for air, so tore it down again looking for reasons why. Didn't take long to see why, the velocity stack had an internal diameter of 15.4mm, but the carb internal diameter is 19mm!

    I bored out the inside, then while it was dialed true in the lathe, thought I'd contour the shape to aid flow. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Okay, things are happening fast with this one.

    Here's a before pic of what I was dealing with:

    And after:


    Chrome "bothy" forks


    DDM Racing third bearing support




    My milled aluminum rear fender:



    Tank, with billet DDM cap all installed with my own lathe turned aluminium spacers.




    That's it for now. I've ordered a few parts off ebay that I'm waiting on to complete this project with. I'm going to machine/weld up the handle bars this week while waiting on ebay parts to arrive. I'm pretty happy with the silver...I've been known to say unkind words about silver in the past...basically it does suck as a paint colour, but for this project I think it compliments the chrome nicely without being overly tacky? I'm going to put some blue parts in the mix too break it up a little... all will be explained later.

    Awesome I can see the pics now... Yes red is definitely faster and sexier but it's usually Italian and unreliable

    . Italians are ok ..... just that there seems to be a disproportional amount of penis fingered wankers owning them ..............I have several
    Vegetarians Bah !! . If god didn't want us to eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of meat ! .

    @hamsav never said I didn't like them but they do have an affinity for the workshop.

    yeah ya gotta wonder at the Ferrari add that sez " 11000kms , new clutch , new cam belts .... " , especially when you know that's an "engine out" job . Desmo valve gear has an undeserved rep for being expensive , hi maintenance ( having said that most workshops will gouge as much as they can on this one )..... old story the longer and closer you spent at the red line the more often you have to adjust clearances . I enjoy working on them as much as riding them

    Fair comments. Never owned one only jap bikes so no real personal ownership experience except for riding a couple of 900SS Dukes. Great fun but I found them a little cramped for my large frame, strange they must have the foot pegs close to the seat. They did seem to spend a fair bit of time being fixed but as you say "Time on the Red Line = Garage Time"

    Going back to two strokes Vespers and Lambretta seemed to go ok.

    Had a cool idea for a kickstand. The originals had a large two sided loop. Hard to explain, but irrelevant as I didn't have one anyway. So I welded this up:



    And lean it to the right and it automatically "springs" up under tension. The spring holds it out of the way...pretty trick!


    It's the devil in the detail

    MKII model:


    I had to make it clear the part where the deck bolts on, as I forgot about the rubber isolator. Looks a bit more shapely now with a few more curves
