    Sad News--Passing of Control4UserGuy

    Member Control4UserGuy passed away from pancreatic cancer a little more than a month ago. Rich was a devoted Gilson addict and built beautiful bikes. Those of you who saw his work were, like me, amazed at what he could do--a complete perfectionist. A good friend and he will be missed.

    Gilson Trail Bike Clutch Guard Extension???

    I finally found a clutch guard for the trail bike and was working on making a bracket to fit it around the TAV. I found this photo that shows an extension on the guard. Is this correct or just a prototype? Hope this link works...something is still not right with pics...

    Rare find in the Mid-South East--H35

    Picked this up yesterday in Richmond. For you lucky guys (gals, too), having a "real" mini bike engine doesn't mean much but since I've never come across one, this H35 is a treat. Came off an ARCO/Ajax bike that the owner put a hemi on. No scoring on the cylinder, clean valves, spotless fuel...

    My entry for Ripley's Believe it or Not! H60 compression issue

    I picked up an H60 snow blower motor off of e-Bay for cheap. The seller said it ran but had low compression..... That is plain old silicone seal sandwiched between the head gasket and the block. It melted into the combustion chamber. :blink::no::doah::laugh:

    Big Block Carb issues (H60)--runs rich

    Got both of my H60s running today (subjects of an earlier thread). Both have brand new H60 knock-off carbs. After running the solid state H60 back about a month and a half ago, I had way too much fuel even with both circuit screws barely open. So, I reset the floats on both carbs to be a bit...
