I assume that many members here are doing lots of small, but interesting things throughout the days.
While those things might not warrant a 1000 page thread I thought it would be fun to have a thread that people could post the small things.
Be it a job done on a bike, or car, or just something fun you did.
I took the CB1100F for a state inspection.
Also waxed it, adjusted the timing chain, and a few small squawks that it had.
To be fair my actually vote is still to focus on what is in front of me as not to go off on a wild goose chase.
But since I can not work on the Seeley, assemble the chopper engine or finish my CR while at work I can day dream......
Started talked to an older guy a few weeks ago and he said that he had some old SOHC CB750 stuff from when he used to race.
Said he couldnt remember much about what was still left, but knew he had a special cylinder with RC cast into it, and webers.
That was all I needed to hear!
Grabbed the stuff yesterday.
RC Swing arm. Seems straight.
Head. Didnt look to hard at it. Seems to have HUGE ports and aftermarket retainers. Need to measure the valves to see what size. Needs a rebuild for sure.
Weber carbs on an RC manifold. Almost everything seems to move.
Old school air shifter. Dont really know if it works, how to test it, or how to use one.
Crank. Lightened rotor. Have not checked the journals.
Markings on the cam. Anyone know anything about these? I dont really know how to measure cams to get specs either.
This doesnt look stock
73mm Pistons. Do not look like they were run long.
Failed to get a picture of the near new GoldenRods!
They are some interesting parts. I have a small fetish for vintage CB750 speed parts.
Head turned out to be a sandcast. Need to see if the guy still has the top engine case. I didt get it. Would be nice for two reasons. One it might be a sandcast too, two it would be bored for the cylinders.
While the point of the video is to show the new material process BMW is doing, my part is right there on the robot arm too!
I work for a tool changer company. Robot puts down the fixture, and then picks up a different tool.
Normally all I see are redacted CAD files. Fun to see the line making cars!
