Sien daai valve het so n papier dun randjie  :ricky:
Daai groot piston moet sekerlik n vet balancer shaft ook erens het.
Jis maar jy maak hom pragtig skoon. Ek is n ou wat lief is vir die mechanics op n bike
en is dit mooi om die goed so skoon te sien. Het nog nooit die bike in lewende lywe gesien nie maar hy moet seker n contender wees vir "king of thumpers"

Put the head & cam on this morning, still got scrub up the rocker cover put back on do timing etc,. Subie if it is apart I think it must be spick & span before it goes back, easier to see your mistakes ;) this what it looks like in 1 piece

Hel! Pragtige fiets.
Wonder hoekom hulle dan so dun gesaai is ? Gaan vanaand bietjie google om meer uit te vind van die model. Lyk na n interresante fiets.

I have ridden the odd Harley or 2 like my trip through Bots the Delta to Francistown, & that vibrates more but more comfy seat, so to answer like most things you get used to it develop an iron butt, myself & WHS did 900 odd ks one shot back from last years bash hard on the butt,
the no for the filters, Alan 0722274125 he is being anal will not give me the guys name maybe com or something, give him a ring he can arrange them.
