    I went a roving. I finally got on a bike since selling my other bikes back in March. Didn't get too much riding in, I visited a few people and did more chatting than riding. Bike still needs work, but 104,000km on the clock, so you have expect some issues. Next ride won't be until midweek or so

    I am envious of all you guys that can freely ride around at present. We do not have much of an opportunity down here in Victoria to jump on our bikes and just go for a ride. Sure you can ride to shop to pick up the milk, but only if it is under 5kms away. You can ride to work, but not a lot of fun in that. You certainly can not go for a fang around a race track and may not even be able to do so until at least November. It's the not so fun state down here.

    Yeah, that does sound pretty bad, but sounds better than thousands of people dying from COVID, so thank you for participating in the lockdown! We have been very fortunate up here, and been the benefactors of your restrictions, too, so thank you.

    No plans. But the most sucessfull ones that I have seen are based on battery powered angle grinders. A chain between the 2 rollers is good idea.

    When I was commuting and the bike was the only form of transport, I got used to flats unfortunately, ended up carrying the puncture repair plugs
    There always seemed to be no shortage of woodworking screws unfortunately

    1938 Royal Enfield 250, CF 250 V5 and 650TK, XL250, CBR250, plus a few others.
    Last one I made was using a cheap car 12 volt starter motor from ebay, (cut the end out to fit a sprocket) two pieces of 150mm 'C' channel for the sides, 50mm NB pipe with some weld run along it for the rollers, self aligning bearings to hold the rollers and some commercial 420 chain and sprockets to fit. The owner just used a car battery to the starter and a small foot operated pressure switch from a sewing machine to operate.
    I have seen some made with 240 volt 9" angle grinders to drive the chain (most are 1hp or bigger motors) but they have to use a second chain to slow the rollers down.

    I bought an ex police bike a while back for parts , a mate of mine saw it and wanted to fix it up and donate it to the police museum ,’so I was tasked with getting her going , she is now a runner with a new fuel pump and we are now waiting for the lights , siren and decals to arrive before being sent to the museum

    bloody huge bike

    Not sure where I got the info, but IIRC that was one of the selection criteria - the officer had to be able to lift the bike if they dropped it - thus they were all big guys

    Sorry my eyes might be fooling me, looks like one of the inlets has been miscut, but it may be the light or lighting and they look to be quite pitted

    What happened ?

    I haven't touched the intake seats yet, cylinders 1 & 2 exhaust seats were , as per usual, pitted, the surprise was how the #3 exhaust seats are sitting, as if they are cocked to one side :oops: , I have no excuse NOT to make 30 degree & 70 degree cutters now, to try and save this head.
    I'll have to look around for another MC19 head I recon :help:

    If the valves are not straight in the seats, and have worn that way, you should probably inspect the valve guides, my bet is that they are worn out.
