That's good to know, but I was counting on it. It's a can't miss.What prop did you settle on, I'm looking at a 13x7.

Well,

In a moment of absolute weakness I broke down and bought that brand new 100 Saito twin Sicm me!

It should be a better match for the target plane, an old school Lou Andrews Aero Master biplane

This leaves me with a new or nearly new FA-90T mk2 twin that someone else could probably put to good use

I paid only $280 for it and that was a great deal, in box Would pass it on to a Saito board buddy for what I paid.

Bear in mind I just had a root canal so my mind is drug fogged Better respond before that wear off

Thank you dave and jesse it's been a great help.My twin carb looks the same as the new fa182 twin and the airbleed screw settings look like what i had.I saved the pics and measurements for a reference.

Jesse/gary? get back to the dentist for the anti drug shot pronto...how else could you dream about selling the fa90 twin with it's nice looking heads and broken down hole in the exhaust vw sound? feel free to give yourself a good slap when you sober up,which reminds me.If you ever buy one of those new fangled electric moustache trimmers thingys read the instructions over and over as many times as needed,then read them,again it's going to take two weeks for my moustache to feel better.

ps dave your green harley is creeping in to the background again.

A hog and a frog, nice one

I've been doing some serious thinking on the .90, I may surprise you and buy it.

Pete, the shop light over my east work bench makes it necessary to point the camera away from it, Toward the bike.

I rode Mr. Green to a Ride In Sunday, he was in good company, a 95% Harley crowd, there were four crotch rockets, one Triumph III trike, very red. There were two Valkerie's, no Italian bikes. One big Yamaha Boulivard, one Boss Hoss with a 383 Chevy in it. About 200 bikes in all. A nice group of people, well, after all we were at Church. Oh yeah, there were a couple of those backwards trikes.

Nice collection! I didn't realize their were any Aichi M6A1 Seiran left! I have a set of plans for a .19 size Seiran designed by Dr. Mike Hawkins. I was going to convert it to the land based version. He couldn't get it in the air with the floats, not enough power. The Abrahms P.1 Explorer was weird enough to make me want to model one if I didn't have too many projects to finish now. The Lippisch DM-1 looked like a metal paper airplane. I could go nuts picking out new projects! Look at your own peril!

OF,

The Indian motiff lawnmower is outtanding! Absolutely lovely. The engine looks a lot like the old Power Products (Tecumseh) AH-47 (4.7CI) or maybe AH-58. They were usually fitted with the carb on the stuffer plate but sometimes had the side port carby. The other beauty is the Yammy cafe bike. Just my style. The Yammy XS-650 was a darn good machine. IIRC it was an unabashed copy of a German Horex design. One Japanese bike I would actually consider owning.
My father in law had a GB-500 Honda that piqued my interest a bit as well. It was mine for the asking but I let him sell it.

You would think for $700 he could ship it for free.

Similar this only bronze colored with a red frame. Does 748 sound right for the model, obviously the one above is not it.

For some reason I haven't received the PM yet, Thanks

As to the above mentioned Ride In, there was almost always a very naked Ducati there, not this year, the guy is about 6' 5" maybe goes 150 and looks like a grass hopper sitting on it. He reminds you of James Coburn riding the bicycle in The Great Escape. It had a red frame I remember and very loud megaphone pipes.

What can I use to clean the valves before removing them from the cylinder when I replace it on my 72? Should have the replacement in a couple days.

Monster is in the background.This 959 makes 150hp and it's bigger brother the 1298 panigale makes 200+ and weighs 350 pounds i'll leave the rest to your imagination re riding one.It's an absolute animal.


Monster to the right does this look like your friends duke?

Yes sir, the tank and fairing and tail piece were the color of the upper forks. The picture I posted is a 1200, thanks.
PS I bought Gary's 90 T, I just couldn't help it.

I think I'm covered, the mortgage is paid, the fridge and freezer are full and Geri is taking me to treat me to some clothes for Fathers Day. I'm thinking of selling my ST 2300 to recoup some of it.

The ST2300 is a good engine. I would make you an offer but I have to replace my hearing aids this week. My loss has changed a bit and my 9 year old aids don't work like they did when they were new. I feel pretty good though average life expectancy for hearing aids is 3 to 5 years. I treat them like glow engines so they last longer!
