Not too shabby for a 1am rattle can fucker.

There was rust under the the original Vespa powder that had to be stripped. I used the DA with 80 grit, which is the sanding finish in the pics. This is a ruff ideaR, another layer of rondo on the seams to fill them out flush before the finer sanding. LoTs of steel grinding here to remove the old frame bits, had some tunes jamming in my ear buds, mask, glasses, vacuum, magnets.. anything to catch the shit flyiNg.

The rondo plastic shit is HARD! (Resin+Bondo) It’s consistency is like pancake batter. Fucking awesome! Went on with a 2” throw away brush. Shaved it down with a rasp then DA 80. I’m thinking about fixing the dent in the General tank with it. Mix a little batch.

The RigNition is going good. It’s a jog box on a Yamaha Razz stator coils with an external sparkulator. I’ll have it all Jbot styled with the 12x54x1mm strip welded to the flywheel on Fire while holding TDC with the key in kinda shit.

The 2 stator mounting screws are hitting the back of the flywheel. I’ll have to take the 1/2 spacer out and trim it to 1/4” or something like that.

Maybe I'm not seeing what you're trying to do .

Ahh ... I kinda wondered if it was mercury by the way it 'pooled' at the edges .

You wear good gloves when messing with that stuff , right ?

There is such a thing as mercury poisoning , in case you didn't know .

The seat base worked out good. There’s a thin foam layer under the fabric.

The shaft is so nice! It’s polished by hand with super duper fine carborundum stone. The 4th bearing on there and the needle bearings shimmed. Fuck it was a lot!

Heck yeah, Miss O. Jenny, the clutch locks onto the shaft and there’s plenty of room back there. The end of the engine studs will have to be sawed off for the clutch to spin. Still working on the shaft, drill and tap a couple set screws to lock the clutch on tight? I’ll try that first. Fuck YeaHh

Ha! Started the front wheel. It’s spinning great but I’m still going to install a new set of bearings. That’s easy, the disk brake rotor and caliper setup is already figured out. The thing thats noT figured out is how the front wheel is paintEd. I heated up a couple cans florist silver and hammered gold. The forks are clamped so I can spin the wheel and spray the fuck out of it at different angles. :)

The holes thru the washer I’s going to thread thru for a clutch puller. The 2 holes on the coller, with a nut welded over the hole then thread thru them. I don’t want the fucker to come lo0se!

Here’s what i was planning on. Cleaned it up then reinforce it with the washer.

The washer sits nice and flat. The clutch will be facing the same direction as on a hobbit. To change the springs, I’ll have to loosen the set screws and pull it off the shaft. On the hobbit engine, it wedges onto the shaft so it prolly won’t have that pop this way.

Re: Fuckin around in the shed

Sounds like a plan . Might have to take a little bit of that washer to insure spring clearance . Maybe the washer just looks thicker than it is .

This plastic GY6 variator fan tacked in the back side of the clutch. I torched it til it was loosy goosy and flattened it out. Mauled out the center hole bigger using a little belt sander. Trying to throw some wind, the exhaust is right there ^ from this shit.

Washed it up and torched the moisture til it evaporated. heated up a can of epoxy.

It’s a lot easier to see when it’s painted.
