CG110 engine ready for installation

CG110 engine rebuilt with NOS cylinder and piston, head decarbonised and valves lapped. New valve stem oil seal too.
A quick coat of paint and itโ€™s all ready for installation in the freshly painted frame tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€ Beverley reckons Iโ€™m the surgeon and she is the nurse, passing me tools and holding things.
I like playing Doctors and Nurses with Bev ๐Ÿ˜‚

Gold CG failed compliance

Bad news. The Golden CG failed compliance because it was an insurance write off at some point many years ago. To get it road legal will require a repair certificate and it turns out that getting one is very difficult and expensive.
To move forward Iโ€™m going to move everything except the engine to a CG110 frame I already have. Unfortunately I canโ€™t use the CG125 engine in the CG110 frame because it is more than a 15% increase in power. So I have to rebuild the knackered CG110 engine. Iโ€™ve bought a good used crankshaft and NOS cylinder and piston. And new gearbox bearings throughout. Should be a minter ๐Ÿ˜€

Chaly is Finished

And the Chaly was mainly done. Still got to the get the horn working (handle bar button not doing its thing) and figure out why the front brake light switch is erratic (even with a new cable). Seems to go alright with the big bore kit, not fast but goes up the Wellington hills a lot better. Might not bother with a 70 head and bigger carb for now.
Glad I left some patina ๐Ÿ˜€ Beverley thinks itโ€™s ace, sheโ€™s been riding up and down our street this afternoon practicing changing gears.
