twin panther progress


so i got my primary connection dealt with this weekend..[for a second time] its been kinda half done for ages now after the weekend of doom a month or 3 back when it all went tits up.

so i closed the motors together by few of mm. that way im not relying on my measurements and the belt not stretching - ill have an idler pulley now in the middle bottom run. plus a few fairly inconsequential tweaks that i will notice but dont really matter.

was a 1 hit job so ive been avoiding it. get it wrong, start primary plate again... but turned out not too bad after ive been making excuses not to do it. bit of turning, hammering, welding and grinding and im happy. essentially 2 of the bolts that hold the crank halfs of each engine together also clamp the primary connection to the motors through the dural plates - making everything stiffer.

black panther m100 for sale

selling my old m100 panther now i have the rigid panther on the road reliable this doesnt get used [not been ridden, other than test ride after engine work, since about march or april when i took it off the road for the engine maintenance below]

its had new rebore / piston
new valves / guides
[bottom end checked out just fine]
mag rebuild last winter

other than that:
powdercoated wheels
12v converted
custom front mudguard [in my opinion way tider than massive stock one]
paint is 2k blackwith a slight metal fleck in it - its petrol proof not rattle can.
i have the stock dual seat to go with it and some stock bars if you prefer [but this is a superbly comfy position to ride to me]

its a mild custom as can bee seen in the pics and can be reverted to stock if you want in pretty much no time


its a 56 bike with a 53 motor, free tax, doesnt need mot & cheap insurance... what more do you want in life?

all in all - a tidy bike, absolutely not a project but equally not a pristine mint museum piece either

its still a bit tight with the motor being fresh done, but a decent starter - get on and ride

im looking for £4000

will be ebay bound in the next week or 2 if it doesnt sell
