Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Wahoo! Took the Stiletto Rat Bobber out for it's first spin, what a rip. No front brake (It took two blocks to stop), and no muffler. It sounded more like a gatlin gun than a Chinagirl. Liked the setup and the handling. It reminded me of the old Bultacos we rode as kids. The rebuilt Chinagirl is strong and consistent with quick acceleration and smooth idle. It's a bit of a challenge to start this little engine with a recoil starter. I'm surprised with the compression. My respect for these little engines and the NT carb are renewed!!!! The jackshaft on the Stiletto worked perfectly. I removed the exhaust and welded a pipe fitting on for a muffler, welded a pipe fitting on a little Chinagirl muffler and re-installed. Now it's quiet and fun, and fast.
