Re: Old biker, new member
Nice collage Dan those photos took me back to my youth...owned a Cushman Eagle (Gulfstream blue custom paint, rolled and pleated white naugy saddle and passenger seat) at 13, had 8 hp engine that I quickly "hopped up" by boring .060 over, lightened the oversized piston, shaved the head for more compression, polished the combustion chamber, replaced the Tilotson carb with a Dellorto & of course removed the exhaust baffle for that sound of power. I latter added a Iskendarian "full race" regrind camshaft (bought through Honest Charleys hot rod shop) Topping 75 mph flat on the tank was a thrill that I am fortunated to have survived.
Thanks for the thread info and a feel for the forums protocols. Have a blessed day,Rick C.
