the panther is nearly there

ever so close

tonight i need to wire it up in an awfully complicated manner so i have some lighting off a total loss battery system for now.

blasted up and down the road a bit last night and it "seems" ok. only miles will tell

arse kicker

its been an absolute arse kicker of a weekend. but its running now. engine top end done, mag rebuild, new carb. dont know its secret hand shake yet but it starts pretty easy when i get it right.

ive had the gearbox in and out about a dozen times or more. swaped for spare gearbox that turned out to be worse. mixed and matched parts from 3 gearboxes to get the best box i could at no notice with no spares. still glitchy as hell on kicker but it shifts good - fingers crossed

carb needs tuning still. went for a wassel copy of an amal concentric. seems nice just needs tweeking really now.

then reassembly for to set off on friday for a weekend of riding / camping with a little luck... fingers crossed - i need all the help i can get

but i got emailed this pic yesterday. bloody class.... now it obviously had some acceleration but it might have topped out at 25mph for all i know :) id love to know what his gearing was and what he had inside his motor though
