      Hi RacerX,

      We here at Vintage Restorations would like your knowledgeable input on our spray can metallic finish. I know there have been many posts in the past regarding the quality and final results a rattle can will produce. We feel our products are by far the best on the market and will meet all expectation for those who choose not or lack the knowledge to tackle the difficult candy finish application. We would be glad to send you a free 4" x 6" painted sample of our finished product using the exact same spray can paint sold through our company painted in our warehouse. These paints are not candies, but Duponts expensive ChomoBased 2 stage metallic paint.

      If you are interested in the quality finished product our spray can paints can produce, we simply need a shipping address and will get shipped right away.

      I thank you for your time,

      Best Regards,
      Rick Hanebrink

      Racerx, I'm assuming by some of the posts I've read (none about this) that you are well versed in the 70 engines. I bought a basket (KO 70) case and am putting it back together. The large end of the kickshaft sits in the left case cutout and the manual shows it sitting in there with no steel shim or protection. This makes little sense, can you verify that this is the case? Unless the shaft floats via spring pressure then the aluminum will be shredded by the helical gears teeth at the end of the shaft. Thanks in advance for any help,

      Bob,
      I need a couple of things. First, I messed my "Honda Nice" custom fabbed rear brake pedal up that you modded for me and need another. Second, I want a little more power out of the Nice motor, what about the minimum upgade to the 127cc kit. Little (very little modification) for a little more power. How much for both of these? Thanks

      Racer,
      My comments are regarding the little dust up thread that appeared on the site last week regarding an engine being done correctly or not. For whatever it's worth (and I have chosen to stay off the board for a reason) I do know that Skidreau (Kirk) bought the engine from Mark Pearson. Kirk and I had had a conversation regarding his desires before, during and after the engine was complete. I just had two of my engines done by Mark. He pretty much said he just wanted a basic driver engine. I also was aware that he was not real happy with what he got. It was for his Dad's bike and his Dad had paid for it and I think this is where some of the anger came from.

      Not trying to start anything and I have nothing against Mark, nor do I have anything to gain other than kind of trying to shed some facts on the deal-if it is even a deal?

      If you have questions, or not, I can be contacted at: jim@mbi1954.com

      Take care and hope all is well with you.

      The lower end fits tightly enough on the lower fork leg, so even though K1s lack the shallow retaining grooves found on K2-`79s, that's not a problem. What will trip-up your plans are the upper chrome trim rings. K2-`79s have an extra "nose" section on the bottom side and these provide the upper mounts for the fork boots. Without them, there's nothing to hold the upper end of the rubber. Occasionally, you can find these used. The only other options would be having either new trim rings, or possibly extensions (they'd be held in place by the fork springs) machined from billet aluminum.

      HI racerx,
      I saw a post of yours about putting rubber fork boots on a K1 front end. I would like to do the same. I like the look and my metal covers are thrashed. Could you tell me if the boots need a clamp or zip tie on the bottom to keep it in place. Also what parts of the fork do i leave on the top, I plan on taking the headlight mounts off and using a aftermarket mount instead. thanks for the help.

      There are some very good parts on the market, some questionable stuff, too. If purist-originality isn't a concern, some amazing upgrades are possible in many aspects of these bikes. However, cylinder heads are a broad topic, too much to discuss here. If you want to really dig into this topic, please contact me via e-mail.

      I would like to post a link to all my pics via Windows Live. What would be the best place to do this and how do I do it. I am a newbie.

      Don't know about that one. Adding another folder is simple enough, keeping yet another division of "for sale" from adding confusion might not be. What's there already, imo, dilutes the effectiveness of member ads and there's not much value in ads the don't bring results...even if they're free.

      Since this is largely a matter of opinion, perhaps the best way to approach it is by starting a thread in the "gastank" folder. If feedback in mostly in favor of it, then we have some basis to move forward. However, ultimately the decision rests with Tiedgen.

      Have you considered adding a section for items up for sale that is non ct70 related... The reason i ask i have a 4 wheeler i am looking to possibly get rid of, just a thought.

      You got me thinking, a dangerous thing to do- LOL - Unless your view is different than mine, as a moderator, you should be able to simply click on the "edit" button, same as anywhere else in the forum. If you're unable to do so, drop me a note and I'll assist. Can even make the edit for you failing all else.

    Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.
