    Max RPM 66cc

    Yeah - there has been a few issues which had held him up - but most of them are sorted now... He's trying to find a casting firm that will do the job to the specs he has set - tooling is costly so he don't want to have to do it twice... I don't reckon I can say too much cause it ain't my...

    Theon, Mate you think the old Roo engine is good - after talking with Dino on the phone I can assure you it is but a baby compared to what is now coming our way... One piece crank and lots of other go fast bits... Yep Mate - we are spoiled... Mick drn2

    Spot On Mate about the Roo Prints... Just spoken with Dino at Screaming Roo about the new motors for my Mad Dogs - bad news is that a new Crank/Engine Platform is being developed by him and the motors will not be ready until March... I'm gonna buy a few others and do some work on them and...

    Piston Bike - shipping costs - are you high?

    I ordered some parts from Sick Bike Parts on the 24th December and had them shipped here to Oz... It did cost a little bit though... I received them about 3 - 4 days of Christmas... That is service... drn2

    HALP! please help a noob figure out why his bike is running like crap!

    Just a thought for ya... If you are running a power wire from the actual magneto (the white wire on most eBay A80 conversion kits) then stop doing that cause you are draining way too much power from it... Just use other types of lights... drn2

    Max RPM 66cc

    I'm still only a noob with em... But I do have a couple of "Special" bikes I am building which will explore the reed and other go-fast bits you have in the States... All built around the Roo Prints... And no - once you start injecting Roo cranks into A80 cases - match them with the good...

    HALP! please help a noob figure out why his bike is running like crap!

    One of my bikes was screaming along well (A80 off eBay) with no issue... But one thing led to another and it started dying... Would sort of run while moving but got dead at low revs and finally gave up the ghost... The inlet manifold flange had broken and was leaking air big time...

    Max RPM 66cc

    So true - I have a personal collection of 6 bikes I am in various stages of building... Different bikes for different tasks... I have not tried a reed system yet - nor will I use case induction on my bikes... The 'Roo Print 66' engine I use is just a beast - non reeded - and 10,000 rpm is...

    Max RPM 66cc

    I run my Aussie built 'Roo Print 66' at around 8000 - 9000 rpm quite comfortably - it was designed for such a thing... I use Motol 800 Oil at a 25:1 ratio and the beast just keeps going and getting stronger... I would recommend a 39 tooth sprocket though for country riding - a 36 for urban...

    G'day From Oz

    Thanks for the welcome - yep my neck of the woods is perfect for the bikes and I have some serious fun on them... I started the business with the intention of restoring old bikes that no one wants anymore and turning them into something beautiful & valuable - not to mention bloody practical...

    G'day From Oz

    G'day folks - my name is Mick and I build restored & converted Old School Mountain bikes for a living here in Victoria Australia... I am only new to the business - my first motorised bike got me hooked... I'm a 47 year old adrenaline junkie who lives in the mountains and has the greatest...
