    Not sure what I have or what year it is.

    That bike is a nice score! It looks all origenal and complete. (you dont find that often). You could re chrome the wheels but its expensive. If it were mine I would just remove the rust and paint them.

    clutch choice advice neaded

    Whather a juggernaut is good for high rpms or not isn't the issue its still not as good as a clutch for high revs, its a bigger heavyer drive train. The reason this model bonanza isn't well set up for a torque converter is there isn't any room between the swing arm and jackshaft to fit the...

    clutch choice advice neaded

    to massacre, a juggernaut is a torque converter and as I stated, the bonanza won't be getting one. Torque converters limit top end rpm. High end rpm is what this motor is built for so thats a no go. also full suspention bonanzas aren't set up well for torque converters. I do have another bike...

    clutch choice advice neaded

    I have a built up Briggs Animal racing motor built to turn 9000+ rpms that is going into a Bonanza frame. Its not getting a torque converter so which centrifugal clutches will hold up to this type of punishment? I would prefer not to use a plate clutch. I have a hillard, the type with the outer...

    new bonanza project.

    I'll have to check but it may be mixed like that. I went to a welding supply store and told them what I was doing and they sold me the tank.

    Just got the new arc billet rod so I started the motor build. The bottom end is assembled and I'll have the rest of it done as soon as I get another afternoon to work on it, then comes the tricky part (carb tuning). Aftermarket carbs are ussualy a bit off out of the box mostly because they're...

    38mph Sears!

    The billet rod for the ohh55 from arc racing fits this motor and the cam can be re ground by dyno cams for more lift and better duration, if you do that and add some stiffer valve springs that top end will increase quite a bit. also buying and installing the h50 motorsports coil it increases the...

    How fast is too fast ?

    When ridding off road you need a helmet not get wipped in the face by very small low hanging branches and vines I used to ride on an abandond rail line and you should see the scraches on my helmets from them, long sleeves and pants help also. The ability to stop quickly due to obsticles like...

    new bonanza project.

    I finaly found my camera. This is the brake setup I came up with, from past experence I've found the internal springs in the brakes aren't strong enough to fully retract the rupp style brake levers so I always add an extra spring over the cable, I bought them at ACE hardware and cut them to size.

    How fast is too fast ?

    I ride off road only. so it's only to fast when your shocks can't keep you stable anymore and your bouncing off the bike lol. My new bike might be capable of 70 but I'll need to finish it and get it running first. It's a Briggs Animal racing motor moded to the gills strapped into a full...

    new bonanza project.

    Another quick update: set the ring gap for the piston properly this time and found out the rod I have probably isnt from ARC. I threw out the busings to get new ones just to find the new ones from ARC for the rod for this motor don't fit. this must be either an out of date model or be made by a...
