Finished up the Mango Toucan 3. Added a Origin 8 cargo unit which is this really cool set of handlebars with a built in basket. Had to paint it 'cause they only had white, so did a two tone. Needed to shorten all the control cables too. Not to mention get a threadless stem adapter and a 4 bolt clamping stem.

Do you have a picture or link to the handlebars? Origin8 makes some pretty useful and inexpensive bike parts.

...Nice handle-basket !
I'm wondering about the size....

Took her out for a spin to the hardware store to get free popcorn, allen head bolts for the rear sprocket, an O-ring for the nt carby, and allens for the chain tensioner.

Much smoother trip than prior with the nt, but still running way fat at mid and hi rpm. The #65 drill is WAY too big for the main jet, so I gotta go get more drills to see where I'm at before seeing how much smaller I should go.

Two tax collectors passed me by, at different times. I was relieved. Hope I can go long as possible without an encounter... Who knows???

The Great Master was leaking between the body and insulator so I pulled it out and put in Lima Delta brand from the other kit. No change in performance on that count. I did notice the plug threads were carboned up for the same distance past where the plug threads in... the plug thread on the body is not long enough for this straight head...

I went from the hardware to O'Reilly's auto parts and got the NGK B6HS that is advised, and it doesn't have a proper length thread, either. Guess I better go to NGK site and find out what plug is REALLY for this cylinder head.

LOL
Went by a radar speed detector as the second tax collector was passing me near the auto parts store... I was going 13mph LOL and I was nearly at the speed I cruise at, which is probably 15 - 18mph there on the main street of town.

Made a cheapie tool to align the rear sprocket, but did not have the new bolts yet.

Got home safely and avoided skidding out in the gravel driveway! Yay!

Got out to the races today, 35km both ways. Engine seized on the way back, 5km from home. I hate pedaling!
Was totally worth the trip though:
