Nice job! Did you have to get the speedo refurb'd and if you did was it expensive...  Have been quoted some outrageous prices.

No MD, I swapped the NOS speedo still in the box!!!! and lots of other D1 items including a alloy tail lamp for the 48, In exchange for spraying his Bantam Super (not the frame, but still lots of work)

We both agreed on the equal value and no money was exchanged, Why else would you part with a rare item like the NOS speedo, we both got a good deal I thinkthumbs-up

I do know what you mean about the price of speedo's, I looked into the reconditioned speedo's but they are very expensive. I was just going to put the old broken speedo housing on and not hook it up but maybe buy a new face plate and paint it, I don't think I will be done for speeding as there are not many downhill roads here roflApart from that, my feet are not that fast as I don't have a engine yet.rofl

Willllllllmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, LOL, I was thinking about using the same push bike digital type speedo and put it behind the miles real cut out section, this way it would look pretty original.

New face plate on ebay was $37 AU a while back.wave

I have lot's of PM's, asking why I haven't posted any updates, Well, we have had trouble with the crank, It now has been dropped of into a mechanic shop to get sorted or get dumped.

Meanwhile the rest of the engine is ready for final the assembly, the cylinder has been bored and the new piston is ready to be fitted, all the new parts have arrived and everything is ready to go, just waiting on the crank.

Here are some pic's below of the engine.

Good news, Maddog Leary (Rob) has come to the rescue with a usable  crank  clap

It should arrive end of next week, so I can finally get back to assembling the engine.fingers-crossed

Apart from the engine, the only thing left to do is to finish the headlight and the electrics, I will probable be calling on the official forum electrician dimitriscy for help.popcorn

Can't wait to finish this 50 plunger so I can start counting rivets on the 48 rigid.fishing_gif

Stay tuned, See ya'h, Hans

That is good news. Just as my 49 is still refusing to run since the brake down two weeks ago.

I Hope you get your 49 running again soon,

Question:

I know that the threaded rod is missing that holds the fishtail piece and battle all together, But where douse the rod mount to inside the silencer?dunno

Thanks, Hans popcorn

Hmmm...yes Hans. Maybe this is like what i have....
But yours is missing the inner tube/primary baffle, with the rod.

In that rod (threated at the end) you slide the other baffles (disks) and then hold them with a nut, before attaching the silencer's fishtail end..

There are a few problems with this... 🙂

I don't have the D1 here, its in another city... i can try to take some pictures from the inside, but since i cannot take it out, there will be no much help i think...
Best and easier way i think, would be to make it like Bob's (cocorico)
Take one of ** Please log in to view ** stick an 8mm threated rod inside, and in some way, sit it in place.
Then, in that rod, you will slide your disk baffles.
I was about to do that, but didnt manage to remove the other tube that is inside...

So i will just put the baffles in there dunno

My view, from the engine side, is this...very strange...and that is metal..not carbon. i can see only 2 small holes in the end...
Strange that is working, and strange that is too loud too..

I do have this baffle.

This baffle above in the picture is stuck inside my silencer, It looks exactly the same, and looking at the pic above, it looks like the last disc is welded onto this tube (looks like vegetable graderrofl)

It looks like Bob/cocorico tube has 2 lugs that, If rotated, Should be held captive by the 2 bolt's in the outer silencer chrome tube.

I'll work something out, It shouldn't be rocket science, MMM, Maybe rivet science, roflwhistle

It's a baffling problem this one.....  (pls excuse the poor pun).  Have been looking for a cutaway drawing to try to figure out how the extended vegetable grater is held in place.
