Thanks....... yeah the Hum-Dinger is humming a better tune with the Puch Head.... Dang-it I was wondering who that was out there in the distance.

That one rain cloud reminded me of my experiences in life many times..... I come up with what I think is a good plan and no one else wants to be a part..... I start raining and raising heck and everyone else just stands back looking instead of joining in....... sometimes I've been that lone cloud raining like carzy and no one will play.....LOL!

Today I started porting the cylinder body for higher RPM as well as deburring and cleaning the sharp edges off the ports before i snap off a ring!

Later I'll be reinstalling my cleaned piston with a new wrist pin bearing and rings. Hopefully I'll be finished porting tonight and can get the motor reassembled and sealed up.

Planning to use the thin copper gaskets I have and give them a solid coat of copper gasket spray hopefully keep them sealed for the duration.

Yesterday I received the center stand for "heavy Bikes" from Amazon. Installed it on my Genesis Astra and it is great. Solid aluminum and it will keep the rear wheel in the air for running on stand. Love it.

Now waiting on Mr. Postman for the box of goodies from SBP. Gonna tackle the expansion chamber and some chrome stuff. I love this Hobby.

Oh.....Yeah...... its a very addicting Hobby and lots of fun..... as much as I enjoy my motorcycles and enjoy tinkering with my motor bikes even more.... keeps me busy with something rewarding when I'm not at my job and keeps me here at the forum with all the great people here that have the same love for the motor bikes.
