Kommer ni ihåg Start & Speed på 70-talet, Donovan finns ännu, annonsen hittade jag bak i rekordboken. På deras hemsida finns en länk till fina gamla racingbilder, en bild föreställer en ung dam med namnet JoAnn Reinolds, undrar om det är samma lite äldre dam som hjälper mig med anmälningsblanketten, hon heter JoAnn Carlsson, jag måste fråga henne till hösten.
Remember the Start & Speed a Swedish newspaper in the 70's, Donovan's even, the ad I found in the record book. On their website there is a link to the fine old racing images, an image depicting a young lady named JoAnn Reinolds, wondering if it's the same lady who helps me with the application form, her name is JoAnn Carlson, I have to ask her in August.

At last, we stand in the record book as Hermann Muller, Wilhelm Hertz, Burt Munro and Jack Christer. Now, just to speed more ...

Now, Kjell and I started to plan the next engine, for a while, we wanted to find a 92mm piston, so we would get the current 645cc engine, but it was difficult, it would be to produce a new order 4500skr pieces so they plan ended. Since we have talked about building a 350cc engine, the problem is that the pins go into each other if you have too little impact, Bosse Brolin solved the problem it optimum would be to have the Jawa 892 piston 83mm but it's certainly not a lot of those lying around everywhere, so now we're talking about a 85mm Omega ice racing piston and only 2mm material between the frame and crank pin.
Omega piston is not it fine, the problem with it is that we may not get up enough compression, but Hasse can weld again the combustion chamber, so it should go.

It was easy to pick it into small pieces, and I got unexpected help and I would not put in all screws. Now its welding on Tuesday, since the frame is painted, I write not lacquered, I painted both cars and motorcycles.

The small tank is similar to a liquor container in a liter and a half, I can fool the Americans and say it's a little Bollnäs-liquor containers.
Cylinder liners of aluminum and carburetor intake, No, now I fooled again, it's a pipe starter shaft threaded through, it should be bolted to the transmission casing. A smaller carburetor intake that fits the carburetor better, I have also got.

Det börjar bli lite tjatigt, det är mycket enklare med en motorcykel utan kaross.
Now I have started to bolt on the covers, but this weekend it is all in pieces again.
It gets a bit boring, it is much easier with a motorcycle without a body.

Han ska få bli min drevleverantör i fortsättningen.
Roadracingen håller han fortfarande på med, numera i Classic.
I searched online and found Nikasil pros would make a rear sprocket for the bill consistent price of $ 65, said and done, after some contact via email and got them there in 2 weeks, today when I got there and went to get it, I thought the house looked familiar, when the owner opened it was the old ice racing and road racing rider Gunnar Jansson, who opened it, I've been to a party where 20 years ago! He competision for Bollnäs several years at the end of his career and was named the Wet-Gunnar up there after an early training a fall in lake ice, it was icy and it had rained so it was 3-4 mm of water on the ice, we trained on the water but Gunnar who had traveled up from Stockholm early in the morning and saddled not even out of the bus, it was too wet!
He will be my gear supplier in the future.
Road racing is he still doing, now in Classic.

Since the chin will be 4 inches above the cylinder head, I would like to have something in the way, moreover, it is so wide between the frame tubes that you can lift the cylinder head straight up. While I was a bit sturdier brace to secure the cover in, I'll taper them out against the cap.

Of course, it began to blow as soon as I took out the weld outside the garage door, if it is organized yacht race somewhere and the wind is bad, I can come up with weld.
Det gäller att komma ihåg att ta bort den i tid.
I made an extra steering stop today, with it on, it can not turn the handlebars at all, it works well when we run it after the truck.
You have to remember to remove it in time.

We do not want salt on the engine so I made a splash guard behind the front tire, tomorrow it will frame out of the last welding time around for me, though it is cold, then the frame to go to Weld Hasse for the last time, but I see the end .. ..
I talked to an old motocross racers in the evening by phone, he thought it was well cold today so he went out and warmed the thermometer with his hands for a while, then he hurried back into the house and believe it or not but it had become 2 degrees warmer outside!

Nu byter jag tillbaka till min gamla mobil så folk får tag i mig, rätt som det var så var telefonen på ljudlös eller på flygläge, fast jag bara åkte Gamm-Merca.
I do not like modern Cellular phones, it was better before. I switch back to my old fashioned.
Nu har vi 3 nya och en bättre begagnad, räcker det inte får vi klaga på våra mekaniker. Det borde vara 2 dagars livslängd på en originalkolv, även därborta.
The third piston has arrived at Jim in Seattle, I feel like a tax cheater, buy piston from Los Angeles and send it directly to Seattle without paying Swedish VAT.
Now we have three new and one better used, if is not enough, we complain about our mechanics. There should be two-day life of an original piston, even over there.

Pro Service has put on some sort of Teflon coating on the bottom, Catherine's comment when she saw them were - They are broken after a morning as usual!
