I have the handles mounted. I have been spending my time painting and making the clutch lever. In a day or two, I'll be putting stuff together.

It's starting to look like something. Lots of little things to do yet.

The show is Saturday and it's almost done. Except the carb is giving me trouble flooding now. :wallbanging:

 

Here is where I am.

The clutch control is modeled after a Standard Monarch.

I have the trailer half painted and I cut new wood and oiled it`.

I'm totally undecided if I want to put a hood on it. But, that's a job for another time.

It looks good without a good. But then a smaller wh good could look good to.

I just think the wood handles came from a time when they didn't have hoods.

That's true. Either way this thing is really neat. It might have been discussed but how's the balance?

Balance? It's supposed to balance?

 

It's nose heavy, of course. Not so bad I can't push it easily. With a plow or something on it, it will be fine.

 

Right now it is having issues. I had it running and then pulled of the carb and tins to paint it. Now it doesn't want to run. First the carb flooded and I fixed that. Now it doesn't seem to want to fire. I installed a new plug and cleaned and set the points. Nada! The show is Sat. and I'm out of time. It will just have to be trailered down there. (It's only three blocks from my house.)

Great job! :thumbs:  Hope all goes well for you. That's a nice park to have a show. Maybe it will work out that I can be there next year and see your project. Maybe even bring one of my own.

Did you get it running before the show? That is a really cool project. How about a seat for the trailer? Nice work!

Sorry, no! I swallowed my pride and pushed it down to the park. Right now I'm looking for a condenser for the mag. I think I can get one from Old Paths Ben.
