  1. Piston in spare/donor engine seized solid at TDC. So I created a shallow pool with penetrating oil. Keep that topped up for a while...
  2. And yet again, another Honda V4 is offered to me. Engine seems farked (waterpump at least) but an ok 1986 engine is included.... Not having spare dry storage space atm, so she will spend the winter outside under tarp.. Hmmmmmmmmmm
  3. Had a hard time removing the generator. Double checked the parts fiche for any hidden from plain view bolts. But no, it had to be 6,5 decades of corrosion... So had to go McGyver.... Ah! Now I see.... And I knew that one day, that 10mm pipe would come in handy
  4. Winter hibernation with some chemicals inside to block condensation... Ins'Allah Clean Place Zip 🤞
  5. Gasket kits for 65 year old engines? No problemo!!
  6. Do ask them what is included in the kit, just to be sure it will address your leak....

    VFR1200 and the Forth Bridge

    O Flower of Scotland, When will we see Your like again, That fought and died for, Your wee bit Hill and Glen, And stood against him, Proud Edward's Army, And sent him homeward, To think again. The Hills are bare now, And Autumn leaves lie thick and still, O'er land that is lost now, Which those so dearly held, That stood against him, Proud Edward's Army, And sent him homeward, To think again. Those days are past now, And in the past they must remain, But we can still rise now, And be the nation again, That stood against him, Proud Edward's Army, And sent him homeward, To think again. The Hills is bare nou, An Autumn leafs, Lies thick an still, Ower land that is tint nou, That thae sae darlie held, That stuid agin him, Prood Edward's Airmie, An sent him hamewart, Tae think again. O Flower of Scotland, When will we see your like again, That fought and died for, Your wee bit Hill and Glen, And stood against him, Proud Edward's Army, And sent him homeward, To think again.
  8. Also handy too loosen 65 year old clutch baskets... 😋
  9. Indeed, #11 is NLA and has been for years.... If u want, I can ask around on the Dutch VFR forum for you. But postage alone will be Eur 20.... plus everybody knows these are rare. I would McGyver something if I were you....
  10. My tip would be to first put the impact gun to "ON" and give the bolt a litte tap. Then switch rotation to OFF.
  11. try these guys http://www.nrp-carbs.co.uk/honda_fuel_tap_repair_kit.htm
  12. As for "old", the 1954 Gilera makes me the village dumb idiot then eh? "Stay on course Captain, steady as they go"
  13. Diet? Work hard, gotta eat... Them AKRONT's polish up well 50's braking...
  14. I recall that we had a motorcycle parking like that at the new facility in Scotland. It soon became a hangout for those who smoked. Then motorcycles got banned from parking there because of "the fire hazard"....
  15. No way!!! close Laguna Seca and keep a place where they cannot even lay down tarmac? https://www.crash.net/wsbk/news/931114/1/worldsbk-riders-critical-dangerous-argentina-track God forbid they ever shut down Assen....
  16. Now you have me hoping the suspension is not White Power (WP)........ PS: WP is now Austrian KTM owned but was founded in the Netherlands. The springs were white, not because white is better; simply because they could have them coated economically.... Via a company that made hospital beds...
  17. Nip out for lunch.... 4 celcius, so dress up warm..
  18. You mean like this one?
