FUCK MURPHY's LAW! I broke a bolt in the front cylinder head weeks ago so I wanted to drill that out real quick: WRONG! After hours of drilling it was time to bring it to a "real" mechanic. He took off the front cylinder head and that's were Murphy came in: even he worked a long time to get rid of the old broken bolt but got that fixed, nice so far, or not: Cylinder heads were smoothed out in the past to make it faster (and fast it was) but the Valve followers were worn out and one even broken, Pistons/cylinders had its best times and last but no least the cams were worn out....
So here goes my money: a) Bolt repair b) New Valve followers c) Pearlblasting heads d) New Cylinders e) New Pistons, f) New Andrews 2 cams, g) New Valves and of course the usual new oil and gaskets and labour. No new projects for me for a while......

I know it sounds stupid to buy a motocross/trial bike for your 3 year old son but we already had a lot of fun with this 16 inch OSET 36V electric bike but with Boyd being 6 now it is time to make it a bit bigger so he and daddy can ride for another 3 years. I also saw an upgrade for the chain/sprockets so I will try to make that happen soon. Baseplate being made next week and ready is Kees.UPDATE: PICTURE 1 WITH READY SEAT!
