    SKAT KITTY Clutches

    I cannot say that these clutches have actually come off of a Skat Kitty bike. They are Noram mfg. I have used these clutches and they work well. They are 12 tooth and if you actually ride your Skat Kitty you are well aware that they were geared way too low and though they can climb a wall they...

    Vintage Motorbike Club Portland Indiana Meet

    This is just a personal view. If a meet which also features a swap-meet opens 5 days before the actual meet date it allows the earlybirds a better chance at finding a good spot to set up and it allows them more chances at the hard to find parts. The one saving grace is that the meet is so big...

    Vintage Motorbike Club Portland Indiana Meet

    The fairgrounds where the meet is held is run by the city and they allow early entry so many head over sometimes 3 or 4 days before the meet actually starts. Wednesday and Thursday seem to be the best days IMHO but you never know what or who will show up at any given date or time. The gate...

    Tecumseh carb leaking out the side vent hole

    Usually a carb inlet needle is not sealing in the intake seat or the float level is incorrect. I like to explain carb fuel intake like a toilet. Gas is added to the bowl thru the needle seat which allow the float to raise until the float reaches a pre-determined height which you can adjust as...
