What a wonderful gift came today - a picture from Alex Schubert in Germany! He has the motor installed, fired up, running well, getting fine tuned while breaking-in. His bike with the 2x1 looks lovely and the smile on his face says it all. This is what keeps the heart warm on a cold rainy day.
These long playing records will happily spin true at 200 times 33rpm to produce a satisfying bass soundtrack.
Working on these to provide an upgrade over stock cast flywheels that vary quite a bit in counterweight and need tedious individual weighing, balancing and calculations. They are also getting very difficult to find new. These custom wheels will be extremely precise and consistent, will have a significantly deeper crankpin hole for a more rigid and secure assembly.
