    Roma-ish build

    Update: The clutch I got from Go Power Sports was a bolt on style and the "new to me" engine I got did not have a threaded shaft so I enlisted the help of my neighborhood machinist and he helped by drilling and tapping a new hole for me. With a few shims it works out nicely. I was also able to...

    Roma-ish build

    Another update on frame and fork work. Everything blasted. Repaired bent fork and incorrect plate position in fork fixed. "Fork stop" added so forks wont hit frame and damage finish or dent frame. Kickstand added and foot peg mounts straightened and strengthened. Also broke the wheels down...

    Roma-ish build

    So I got the frame & fork In the hands of my skilled metal worker neighbor buddy and the fork is a little worse than we thought but totally repairable. It would appear that the bottom triple tree was not welded in the proper position. He ground off the welds and is fixing it. He will also...
