Last week I completed the engine, this week I worked on the
transmission. I wanted to replace the kickstarter arm with a one-piece
version, and discovered the kickstart cover was cracked, so replaced
that as well.
After putting the transmission back in the frame I started
a small modification on the oiltank. The filler opening was
under the seat and this is not very practical, having to remove
the seat to check the oil. I made a new part from a chunk of
steel bar and Aad welded it in place for me.
I put the engine back in the frame, it is starting
to look like a bike again! I also bought a "mouse trap"
clutch booster for this bike and in the meantime Chiko handpainted
some skinny flames on my tank. (Chiko's Pinstriping)
