Thank You Finchy, for not forgeting about us, you have a very neat project, and it is fun to see something new. I have wanted to build a bike like this but keep convincing myself that I maybe incapable. Please keep us posted on any and all updates on progress and performance.
A man after me own heart! That is sho-nuf one wild critter! Please keep us posted.
Wow, I would like to see some video when that thing runs down the track.
Nice one guys, some good reactions there, it looks even madder in the flesh, you kind of climb into it.
Dash & air shifter all sorted, just finnishing off the nitrous plumbing- a total pig to do, then we will wait for a dry day & let her rip a little outside my shop. Need to get guards & bodywork done next, then try out at speed somewhere to make sure she goes straightish & if all is well strip down,paint & beautification of all the half machined/unfinnished bits, but she runs way better than I thought considering I made it up as I went along lol !!!
I will get some video footage when we run her soon & post up- its an assault on the senses for sure & the smell -Castrol R or M actually at 25:1- heaven !!!!!
Well done on the build.
Who or how did you design your pipes?
How did you come up with the intake manifolds?
I designed & built the pipes, hopefully they should work with the port timings I've done & have a good spread of power.
The inlets are that way because they have to be something like that to get carbs clear of front wheel/steering. Not really what I wanted but the only pipe bends I had were those. I will probably run them this year & see how its goes, then if it shows some promise junk them & run throttle body injection & mappable ignition, but thats a long way off as yet, need to get out there & run some times.
I've been tuning various two strokes for a long time so the designing bit is part experience, part scientific & part guess work, the whole project is a bit experimental to say the least, but initial signs are promising, seems to have heaps of torue still low down & picks up way quicker & revs higher than it ever did as a boat engine.
Just finnished machining Nitrous bottle brackets tonight so the NOS is now plumbed & wired, got a Shinko 7" slick on the way to try as well as the hook up, just need a nice warm dry day !!
thanks for your interest,
Somehow I missed this thread on the forum.
Sounds very interesting, and as Pat Neal said sometime back, something we embrace in the UK, where variety was always welcomed.
I may have missed some of the buildup, but plan to be trackside to see this one run.
And yes, for once I think I will be wearing earplugs!.
Any new news, FINCHY? Has it turned a wheel outdoors yet?
Keep us posted.
