Well, it’s been a couple of months now that I’ve been working with Wes over at Four Aces Cycle. It has been a blast. So far I’ve helped rebuild several bottom ends, a couple of transmissions, learned about valve clearances and all kinds of tolerances. I’ve installed bearings, set cam wheel timing, installed connecting rods, pistons and rings. I’ve taken parts to be tumbled and polished, replaced oil pumps and more. I know, unless you’re into it that pretty much all sounds like greek. I’m loving it.
We’ve started collecting parts for me to put together for my project Triumph. I’m going to build a big engined pre-unit cafe racer. So far I’ve got a nice old transmission, a clean set of wide ratio gears, aluminum 750cc barrels and a sweet Speed Twin primary cover which actually has ‘Speed Twin’ stamped on it. I’ll start posting pics as soon as it gets interesting.
