New project

A new project.....again.

As I am gathering spares to restore my C110, I was realizing that a lot of stuff will be left over at the end of the restoration. Tank, engine, forks....

So when I heard that a friend should have an extra frame laying around, I contacted him to make a trade. And so started this project.
It will be a C110 race bike with mostly period correct original racing parts

For now a quick mockup with the CR110 forks and the wheels taken out of the SS50 race-project which will be cancelled for now (leftovers for sale)

velocity stack

Had a problem with my SS50 not running well, but it wasn't consistent, mainly in the higher revs but not always and not with a particular throttle position.
Till at some point, I was looking down at the motor again, while riding, I figured out that it was my leg in front of the carburetor disturbing the airflow....
Solution: take of the cheap crappy long velocity stack, and make a nice shorter one, so I get more clearance to my leg.

no more ugly rubber ring holding the screen, but a nice internal "filter" to keep out bugs and rocks.
