I ride year round. Here in Michigan, that includes rain and 8 degree F temps. Hard to find tall corn this time of year. Let alone 150 mph Harleys anywhere near a road.

I know Dave keeps an eye out for those Virginia Whitetal attackers!

I took my mother for a ride on the Guzzi Eldorado back when she was 82. Took her down a very twisty, hilly stretch of road and at one point I hammered it a bit. She started punching me in the ribs so hard I almost lost my breath. When we got back to my sisters house she said it was a real blast She loved it!

Gary, sounds like your other hobby is going well. I'll be watching the classies for the kits and engines.

Sure, I'm happy you found the 115 for me. Thanks. It just needs a few items and a thorough cleaning to come up to snuff eg Camshaft, Camshaft Pin, Tappets, Bearings, Gasket Set and Carb kit. It was allowed to rust internally a bit and apparently was run that way a time or two. The rusty parts were primarily located in the cam gear box. Also the piston skirt had been abrading hard on the lower cylinder wall, not sure about that one until I take some measurements.

Thanks,

Lonnie

The owner said he would back it up 100%. I will return your money and pay return shipping.

I took the rear cover off and sent a pic to you iirc. I noted the bearing had a light frost.

yeah the deer around here stay off the roads most of the time during the day so not to much of a problem.
however dusk and dawn I jam on the brakes more then once. I could have slept one Whitetail on the butt when I went bye. Oh donít do to much riding around harvest time either. Them darn things run wild and scared.

We had three fatal, deer- motorcycle accidents within four miles of our home last year. Plenty of deer. They are everywhere, not just out in the farmland.

Yeah Iím a volunteer fireman and drive ambulance.
also my dad drove Wrecker for a few years and I got to ride along. I have seen my share of motorcycle deer incidents. If you let that bother you, you would never get on a bike.

It doesn't matter if the motorcycle hits the deer or the deer hits the motorcycle, its going to be bad for the motorcycle rider! My No. 3 son is a Paramedic he sees some nasty stuff sometimes.

Most require a fire engine to clean up with. Idiot on bike + 150 MPH + cars doing the speed limit = bodies cut in half. Been there, seen that. Had to get the truck washed down, including the load on the trailer, along with hours lost with the investigation. Luckily the driver of the car was uninjured, just really shook up by having a bike suddenly appear in her passenger seat.

I could see how that might rattle her a bit. I had a friend that worked ambulances. He said the worst he ever saw was a Corvette Stingray that hit a bridge embankment at a high rate of speed. He never could figure out if the victim was one big person or two smaller people. That was in the late 60s, no DNA back them so the ME had his work cut out for him..

1989, the crash into the car didn't kill him, it was hitting the cross bar on the light pole cutting him in half that killed him.

My youngest son and I were both on the Utica MI Fire Dept as well. My mother's two younger brothers were on the Madison Heights FD from 1957 till they retired. My one uncle was complaining about seeing me on my first motorcycle at 15. He said he had picked dead people off the road from those things. I said "Uncle Frank, you have pulled dead people from houses but you still live in one"

All too often probably more often than not, according to statistics, it is the idiot in the car or pickup that kills the guy on the motorcycle, seen too much of that too.

Anyhow, after 60 years of riding,12 months a year....
Many years there were 10 miles on the bike for every 1 mile on four wheels, owned over 100 motorcycles and we are still here and totally unharmed.

Better to die living than living in fear of dying That to me is a wasted life!

Oh no, the 115's not going anywhere except on my test stand and then in my plane. There's no way your friend could have known about the rust in the cambox area, or you either, by just removing the back cover. It's all good, no worries. Thanks again for finding it for me.

Boy oh boy
the worst I have seen is the dude and his girlfriend hit a lady in a Festiva head on they figure he was doing 130+. Killed every one. + every one was in the car. We used a shovel to pick up the motorcycle. The car was burnt to a crisp.

and you need to have feelings in your fingertips to check for a pulse. During the class I was starting to hurt a couple of the students because the more I tried the harder I would squeeze. Darn callus from installing floors.

Ok, I just checked out the lathe and went though the clean up and break in procedure, it sure is quiet, it whines a little at 2,000 rpm but that's it. It's as smooth as silk. The lead screw has many speeds, lot of gears I can change for that. Now for learning process.

Time to start building the 310...got a new saito 60t to accompany my other new 60t. First will start by getting the lead out of the nose or maybe not . Will post a nice run video of them running together once I get them mounted.

Once a floor banger always a floor banger.
When I pick it up, I either drop it or crush it.
Kept em all out of the kerf path so far, but they sure don't work like they did before 30+ of sinking cleats.
Bigger planes, bigger parts, stronger glasses. More Saitos....

Does it have thread cutting capability? As in a threads cutting lead screw? If so, it is likely metric. Most thread cutting lathes are one or the other, inch or metric, rarely both.

"Powerful 1/5 hp variable speed motor with reversing switch for bi-directional automatic feed and thread cutting"

I missed that the first time I read the specs.
