On a street legal bike to boot!

Man you get a lot of stuff done when you are not sitting at home in a dark dank room staring at!

Cannot wait for the ride report! Looks like you snagged a great example!

Doesn't aluminum expand faster than steal with temperature?
If so then heat on the caps will make them tighter not looser.  Maybe try ice.

Vintage Two Strokes / Bike collection

WOW WOW WOW --- how many is too many?

I don't think we have found out yet! That collection is amazing.

Here is another, not quite as extensive (perhaps) but pretty impressive nevertheless...

My daughter and I hit the trails for a bit yesterday, she on the "modern" bike, me on the 40 year old 175. Its getting to the point where on trails that are not too technical I would have a tough time pulling away from her when I am on that CT3. She looked more comfy on that IT than I have ever seen her before (and this after a 3 month period of ridiculous school work that kept her off the bike). When following her I would think to myself "yes, thats where I would stand, yes that was a good line, yes good speed holding over those roots" and so on. Nice day out.

We traded bikes for awhile too. She looks really comfy on the CT. It really matches her size quite well (she is a tad over 5' to the IT is pretty tall for her). Looked like she was having fun on it too.

When we pulled up at the truck I ask her "so do you like riding that bike?".

"No, it has no brakes,  and the clutch pull is almost as stiff as the suspension!".

I guess she has yet to be bit by the vintage bug (and I guess I should service the clutch cable and throw out mechanism!).

It really is amazing how much ground you can cover on a bike in a very short time.
Doesn't seem like that much until the bike quits.

My most recent mechanical failure was clutch going belly up on my SC500 a few years back at the Virgina City GP. Died on a snotty uphill (they call it radiator hill, and that day I didn't even have radiators). BUT I got to dead stick it back down the hill to a fire road. Never really had to push. Left it in some trees and snagged a ride back to my truck and then retrieved it. Pushing is no fun at all.

I got a 3 hour hall pass on Sunday too.
Not enough time to load bikes in the truck, took the dual sport two fiddy instead.
That thing is not fun on the road but it gets the job done. 1.5 hours on the road, 1.5 on the trails.

No flats on my dual sport tires. Because I am running road ready 20 psi.  ;-)

Glad you had a good day!

Those full floater rear ends are supposed to be the bomb, looking forward to the rebuild AND a ride report.
175 is just about the perfect engine size IMHO.
