VAMOS A LA PLAYA






little run with Steph this afternoon, very short in fact: my gearbox is still perfectible. i haven't ridden the beezer since pffff maybe one month. my last settings are not good, sometimes the gears are easy and sometimes its impossible to change down with the foot but " normal " with the hand, must see the box, one more time, tired of that.......

TO KICK OR NOT TO KICK



i' m looking to install a kick on the ironhead but the cases are not the sames. it seems i will dismantle totally the engine to weld a bit of alloy to reinforce the case , then machining it to accept the crankshaft and the gear stop pin. i'm not sure if it's possible to do that on my little milling machine, must have reflection.......
