"Honey, don't forget . . .regular Camels and a Trop-A-Rocka . . .
and no wheelies ! "This is Jeff's bike (he told me this is "his bike" and he's keeping it). Every guy has a bike they should keep, even if you're not sentimental towards such things. I was excited(and nervous) when he asked me to rebuild the motor. This engine was originally in the "Red Bike." I built the transmission too (I guess it leaks, but the next time he pulls it, I'll get it fixed (or slowed down) I mean, even H-D says "seepage" is normal. In case you didn't know, this motor is a unique one. It's one of the few manufactured 74 cubic inch with the big-base cylinders.(like 80" cylinders) I talked to Dave at Morris Magneto and he instructed me to run the Andrews BH grind cam with his M5 Magneto. I timed it off the back cylinder(as instructed) and I assume it starts and runs good. Jeff brought me 2 transmissions, and said to "build one good one" out of the two. If I remember correctly, one tranny had mostly Andrews gears (with FX main drive gear ratio = higher 1st gear for lighter weight motorcycles) but the case itself was in poor condition. The other trans had a heavy-duty case, with chessy gears. So, we built one with all the goodies. I really like this photo by Anna (see COC website for the link to her) . . . and it's a really neat bike - and I plan on this summer racing around Des Moines with Jeff - Bar to Bar (at least once). Gotta Love it . . .
