Re: Head shake...

Glad to hear you're back at it Sean.

I'd buy one of your dampers, but then I'd have two on my bike. And one is more than enough, even on an old Dnepr.

Re: Front brake cover slop/tolerances?

Well, for what it's worth, the Dnepr drum brake on my Ural leading link doesn't make any 'noises' like you're describing.

Re: Can't throttle up. Or loses speed.

Its a mechanical issue. Bad compliance fitting, stuck float valve needle, failing hall sensor are the usual first suspects. Add to that... clogged main jet(s). My BMW R75/5 pulled this on me about a month ago. I rode the wheels off of it the day before, no problems at all. Next morning fired up to ...

Re: Security fencing and ANITFA

Oh, okay ... I'll own up. My buddy back in Indiana shared it (from someone else) on his Facebook page. I feel so dirty.

But my back doesn't hurt so much now. I think I must have pulled something from laughing so hard when I read it.

Security fencing and ANITFA

We have a 6 ft. Square tube and welded wire fence in the front yard, and last Saturday, when I heard the Antifa Punks might be bringing their BS out to the country, I wanted to make sure they ran into a little resistance before meeting my Kimber 9mm, so I got an electric fence and ran a single wire ...

Re: Started a project

That said.... when we designed the Vetter Terraplane back in 1979 we used the Kawasaki 900... I used to blow the doors off of the local hotrodders with it. Kaw 900s are still out there.

Re: Started a project

I've owned my BMW R75/5 since it came out of the crate in 1973. The Gummikuhe [rubber cow] isn't really strong enough for sidecar work; the older /2 bikes were built for sidecars. I kicked around the idea for a while but decided that even with the aftermarket sidecar subframe available that the bike...

Re: FS, Bingham MkI sidecar

I wouldn't say Guzzi 'copied' the Victoria's V configuration engine, any more than Ford copied the Cadillac L-Head V8; inspired by it. Perhaps.

Gottlieb Daimler patented the first V-twin engine in 1889, etc.

Jay, it reminds me of your "amusement ride" possible sidecar.
Have you done anything with that yet Jay? You GOTTA do something with that.

Re: FS, Bingham MkI sidecar

Doug came up to San Luis Obispo and spent the day with us at Vetter's back in '79. We were just starting the second generation development of Terraplane and he was more than happy to share his knowledge with us. A truly remarkable guy.
