Some asshole stole the C-word last night. I let fellow battler steely dan borrow it and he rode it up to 82nd and holgate here in Portland. He was in the store for less than five minutes and it was gone. I'm super bummer since that was my race bike and all. Hopefully I can piece something together by the start of the season.

The Station got a serious upgrade the other day. A Welder. Her folsom is getting the hang of it before trying it on his bike.
Ive got some good stuff planned and will post some more stuff up soon.
Some other things Ive been working on are: I put a phva carb on a stock Hobbit and it seems to be blasting. I just need to get it jetted. I am working on this ported stock ciao that is giving me endless shit. I just dont have the jet range I need for that kind of bike.
The C-Word has something wrong with the forks. It felt sketchy the other day so I took the headset apart and redid the bearings. It was missing one on the top and there was a fine metallic powder in there. I am not sure how that happened but I put it all back together and it felt better for a day. Now its worse. I need to pull it all apart and re do the bearing in the front wheel and headset again and see if anything is bent. My frame is slightly bent these days its not bad but it isnt helping to have sketchy bent forks. Since I have the welder here now I am going to make an intake for the simo case half so I can run my 24 Mikuni that I have laying around on it. Should be pretty nice. I put the euro clutch on Finally. I like it a lot more. I didnt notice less top speed at all. the stock Si motor with a simo circuit pipe and polini variator is hitting 37 on the flats according to my trail tech. Ive got a lot more planned it will all come soon.
