Just got an old southbend 9 lathe with a bit of tooling.
It's in decent enough shape, but has plenty of use.
Now that I finally have one, what to make for big time moped performance! Ha
I've got a list so far....
Pull start flywheel mount for av7/hobbit
Hobbit crank 3rd bearing support ( Graham, you are a slacker! Lol, jk)
Aluminum weights for hobbit
Variator bushing for this weird aftermarket scooter variator
Oh, and of course reshaping variators and cutting down the center of the hobbits cam follower for progressive pulley mod.
Various drums to disc brake adaptor
Head reshaping/cyl decking
Wow! Are lathes and fast mopeds interconnected in a symbiotic relationship?
That should take forever...but should be a good time.
Any things you'd suggest to make?
