Birthday deadline….

Standard

Now that’s a conrod! Bob took the other side off and voila, the mighty conrod is out! I held it in my hand to give some sense of scale in the photo, I do hope it’s big enough 😉

It’s quite fitting that the conrod emerges today as it’s my birthday. I set a deadline of hearing the engine running by my 50th birthday, so we’ve 3 years to get the whole shebang sorted. Actually I’d like to be riding the bike for my 50th, but I’ll settle for a running engine.

I’m very pleased with the progress so far, and have high hopes for the 3d printed cases – provided that the price is right. Time will tell.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
