Blog has been a little slow as things have been crazy to say the least. I have had the CT70 done with the exception of the clutch cable to arrive, but I got that in this week, on the bike, and she has her first 4 trouble free miles on her 🙂 I waited for quite awhile for the parts to arrive to rebuild the front forks. I needed the piston spacer sleeves on both sides which were on backorder. …

Had some time over the last couple of days to start prepping and cleaning parts for paint and powdercoating. Front forks, rear swing arm, and chain guard ready for paint. The main frame cleaned up and ready. And a bunch of chrome pieces sanded and beadblasted, ready to go to powdercoating. Front shocks disassemble easily, so those were torn down before going to paint. Hopefully I will have the new headlight bucket by the end of the week and then …

At the beginning of the winter we picked up a couple of bikes for projects.  Wes with the Chinese clone of the Ural clone of the BMW, and he also found me a Honda Trail 70 for a sweet ass pit bike. It arrived not running and in pretty rough shape. We went through the stator, wiring harnesses, coil, etc before I finally decided to do something different. The more I looked at the bike, the rougher it looked, and …

Here’s our buddy Jerry and his gorgeous XKR.  It came to see me because it was losing Pentosin CHF-11S from the power top mechanism.  This one button system is super cool but the lines are a problem sometimes. The pump is in the trunk. And so was the first leak.  Right at the fitting. These lines run from the pump in the right side of the trunk, up the left side A-pillar, over to the latch.  Repair means taking most …

Well, we finally got the clutch replaced and the car back on the ground. Now she heads off for paint. Then a few minor things like getting communications installed and we will be ready for the season! We tried to really concentrate on our aero this year to help propel the 140hp down the track as effortlessly as possible!

The Boxster is back in the house and almost ready to go! Really happy with the way the paint on the cage turned out. I am down to installing the fire suppression system and after that it is ready to go!

Huge thanks to Shoutcloud Studios for redesigning and implementing the new website!  There are a couple new additions including the NEW classifieds section where we will regularly list overstock/takeoff/used parts for sale.  While we are still doing some testing and making sure all the links and such work, as of the right now most of it is functional.  Hope you guys like the new look, we sure do! Note: And I have just noticed that comments are closed for some …

This is a cool car…one owner 2L in really nice driving shape.  Only trouble was she is bleeding to death.  Several small leaks and one biggie, the main. So out with the drivetrain and off with the flywheel. Look at all that oil slinging out. While we’re in there we’ll take care of this.  With the engine back in we see this.  Mechanics did this on these cars for years.  They add another solenoid instead of fixing the starting system.  We’ll …

This week has been busy trying to get cars ready for the club race and HPDE this coming weekend. I think we are mostly caught up on the bulk of it which is nice, just a few last minute stragglers to take care of and we should be set for the weekend. Not sure how Bob let this Nissan through the cracks 😉 Boys, she has bigger brakes than you……A good inspection of everything, flush of the brakes with Motul …
