The copper bushings are fixed right under the oil seal. If you look closely, there are the mobile bushings with an intact teflon coating right under the copper rings. 😁
That'll learn me for looking on a mobile screen

No worries mate. I appreciate your input! Can't wait to get back to Bucharest so I can order new tires, chain and continue the assembling.

By the way, any fighter that can help me with some simple CAD designs? I need two identical rearset levers and two identical adapter plates (so a design for each should be enough. I can provide all the measurements.

Today I've decided to make a tail tidy, some minimalistic piece to mount the tail light, blinkers and number plate. Because I went to the stainless steel route with some of the parts made until now, and I had a piece of flat bar laying around, I created a design in my mind, and some measurements later did this.

Also, this was a good exercise on welding stainless with a stick welder since I don't have a TIG / MIG machine. Pretty happy with the result, even though is not finished.

Still need to drill some more holes and give it a good shine.

Yep, 2.5mm stainless steel stick, 80 amps (this stick can work between 40 and 90 amps) but trust me, it's not about skill, probably I am the most unskilled welder on this forum. This stick make is amazing. Once you start it, it goes like butter. Just need to keep a steady travel speed and rod angle.

As it sits right now:


roll dice online

Did some more things, new rubbers, front wheel it's on for good, need to turn some spacers for the rear, and to get chain & sprockets.

Changed the master cylinder and caliper gaskets, bleeded the brake, works as a charm.

Tomorrow I'll try to make a battery tray out of stainless...fingers crossed.

Also, trimmed the sprocket cover to go with the lines of the new frame rearset plates.

I love doing this kind of relatively small-scale sheet bending and fab, snips grips and files etc. Super satisfying. Nice looking part
