Engine was done so far, we had issue about bent frame.


Fortunately 20th Century Cycles from Billy Joel had a Norton Frame which is "NOT" bent!!

We got another frame.


P8232073.jpg
Then always something going on...
Of course year is different these frames.


P8232074.jpg
Check this out.
Black frame on right side is bent frame.
Cross pipe is different below the engine.
Also center stand lugs are on cross pipe in early frame.
The center stand is on cradle in late model.
Gear box or cradle is gonna be hit this cross pipe and stand.


P8232075.jpg
We think this frame need a transplantation.


P8242076.jpg
Put donor cross pipe with side stand lug on patient.


P8242077.jpg
Then cut off old cross pipe.


Looks easy but its not.

We cracked the motor last time.
Today we are gonna do crank sludge trap.
Norton crank are actually 3 pieces with nuts and bolts...
I don't know this is good idea but that what it is.
Triumph, crank is 1 piece has small pipe in the crank called "sludge trap".
Anyway I have to take apart of this 3 pieces crank.


P8092021.jpg
"You are still milking Hugh??"
This is Hugh always says to me...


P8092022.jpg
Da crank.
You can see the nuts and bolts.
Those guys are holding the crank.


P8092023.jpg

No seizer or any thing.


P8092027.jpg

While we will think about bent frame, let's start working motor.


P8092017.jpg
I have no idea about history of this motor.
Who rode?
How many mile?
How was the bike running?

See what's up!!


P8092011.jpg
Crack the motor
You can see the nasty shit inside


P8092012.jpg
Looks dirty of course but good condition though


P8092013.jpg
Hummmm 40 years old shit???


P8092018.jpg
Washing up everything then change all bearings.
Also we are gonna clean up sludge trap too.


P8092019.jpg

"You are milking over there Hugh??"

While Im taking a part of this motor and taking these photos, Hugh is seriously working something over there.

Producer Ed and Hugh are talking about something


P7131599.jpg
Looking good Hugh!!


However, what are we gonna do about this frame???

What do you think about this photo??
Here is Norton Commando frame with guy standing behind.


P7131592.jpg
This was the start of "Cafe Racer TV show".
If you look very carefully, you can see the spine got bend...
Can you see any bend from your side Jon??


P7131591.jpg
Now you can see this neck is totally aiming to day after tomorrow.
Also remarkably bent gas tank mount.


P7131590.jpg
This bike must had huge impact before...


P7131589.jpg
We will build this Norton Cafe Racer Project.
As you see this frame is totally junk....
This year, the host of Cafe Racer TV show Mike Seat offered us to build his Norton Commando as Cafe Racer.
We got hundreds of boxes and basket case of Norton.
He sent this frame to powder coat even frame was junk...
Anyway this is the start of this project.
What are we gonna do this???

One of our local race track "Electric City" in Schenectady NY.
From NYC, it takes around 3 and half hours.
We went Electric city last Sunday 2nd Oct.
Weather forecast said 60% chance of rain, we knew it.
This was gonna be the last race of this track this season.
We gotta go.


PA022260.jpg


Track was pretty shitty, we had to wait to dry out the track.
Long story short, we ended up scratching race...
Anyway while we were waiting, I had nothing to do.
Took couple of picture.

P4221012.jpg
bore job was done


P4221013.jpg
couple tricks are going on this motor
There were 60 over size pistons.
We can't get more than 60 over pistons from our company...
These are actually Triumph 650 pistons which was modified to fit this motor.


P4251015.jpg
Last guy put so much silicone every where to stop leaking...
I think these silicone from outside doesnt work at all.
I have to scrape these shit off completely then put new seal properly.


P4251017.jpg
Behind drive sprocket too...
I told you?? It doesnt work!!
These silicon thing is just to feel better I think.
Need scrape silicone off and clean up then new seal!!


P4291064.jpg
All back together, good to go!!
Triumph pistons work though


P4291066.jpg

Runs no good then came to shop to check the Engine.
Looks to me little bit seized or got hole in piston...
Anyway we gotta pop the head off.
好きなエンジンのうちの一つのA10。
