    I could make a file for 3D printing, but like I said, I'd need an original, at least long enough to take a bunch of pictures and measurements.

    Actually the bike has a rather professionally lightened flywheel.

    It might have started life as a 1977 R75/7, but it's a rolling mish-mash now.

    /6 heads.

    /5 trans.

    Yeah, I had a brief moment of pants-crapping fear when the horrible noises started, I was dead certain the trans was locked, and I was about to get tossed.

    Barry- Nice, very nice.

    What looks like a nice aftermarket oil cooler/sump extender, and if I'm not mistaken, the ribs mark that as a post 1977 nosecone?

  11. Questions about casting numbers on cylinders.

    I scored a pile of airhead jugs, but I'm not sure what goes to what. Is there a resource out there for determining what the casting numbers on the top end of the jugs mean?

    stuff like.

    related note, what are people's thoughts on re-sleeving master cylinders?

    It liked the new rear end, but the tall gearing is...
