HEAD STEADY , Take 1

few progress this week, bottom anchors are pointed, one more time, engine must be removed, but before i 'll finish the head steady , not a lot of place, as you can see, rocker feed is very close with the anchors

REAR MOTORMOUNT

hard to be "productive" actually, lot of various jobs to do . anyway the rear motormount are done, anchors are welded on the frame, genuine were missing , and the alloy brackets are OK . next step will be the bottom mount, then the top .

lookin' to rebuild my Beezer rear wheel, unfinished at this time, not really enough place to work properly.......

INTERLUDE



went to a tool sale last week in an old garage, the best was gone but i found this little machine to remove and install new brake shoes, don't have the use for this, i've already a similar machine,  mechanical , but this one have a good look . need a new belt and a good check of the electric motor, 110 volts, think it's fun to use it

TRY AGAIN

new plates are OK and installed, seems better this time, boring job to do with the grinder, they're 10 mm thickness this time, nothing else in stock . adjusted by milling the top at the frame size

stainless spindle nuts done too

YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

re installed the engine on the frame, and now the front brackets are too short!!!! there's a conflict between the exhaust and the frame tube, must make another set with some offset, luckily, the frame was similar .....mishap spirit's parked here ??
i've had a gander on the Beezer engine, removed the cylinder head, and found a new piston inside !!! ain't it strange ?  already with the first and now this one, there's something........
