Winter rebuild 2017/2018

Over the winter the team completely stripped the bike, repaired any damaged or stripped threads etc, repaired the cylinder head (welded up and machined flat) and made a new billet cylinder block with a conventional copper head gasket / stainless wire combination in place of the power rings. A camchain guide was added inside the cam cover making it impossible for the cam chain to jump teeth, and the seat unit was extended approximately 16″ – a suggestion from UWTSD as an interim measure while they work on the computer model. The gearing was also lowered approx 7% with a new rear sprocket.

The bike was then treated to a new paint scheme in yellow and metallic black by ace painter “Frizzle”, and new decals by Mr Sticker in Saltash were added.
