Luckily for me the inspiration to find and use cool old accessories come from real people and Bikes that are actually being used here on the West coast of Sweden & not from old magazines , like this super cool Aluminium brake cooler ring i first saw on Sinner Tottes, Knuck Killer Pan , i finally tracked one down for the Hobgoblin Knuck , Now i know the new brake shoes will be kept cool even when the going gets tough. hmmm ok ( well it looks cool)
Last minute adjustments to the Hobgoblin Knucklehead, i needed to Tig the pogo stick nut in place after a bozo many moons ago fucked up the last spring section and jammed it there for good, i always get that broken bones, burning skin queasy feeling when i see my bike laying down, those of us who have been down that road know what I'm talking about.
Now all the cams have been re-shimmed and replaced ,
looking forward to testing the modification done on #1 cam which rotates the rotor in the oil pump, an O ring has been placed on the part that is just inside the bushing ,
this should stop any oil leaking past the check-valves and running thru the worn bushing into the block while standing and give the system a little more oil pressure,could this mean no more dry sumping?.
Meanwhile GUY THE GORRILA
has been deep in the bowls of the 1938 matching numbers

Well works started on the side valve Flathead I'm going to modify #1 cam under the watchful eye of Guy the Gorilla. I'm just starting to learn about these strange beautiful contraptions, I've always liked my valves on top of my piston, not next door, but that all changed a couple of years ago when listening to Mr Belin of Megustomuch ,
it was like he was talking about the most beautiful girl in the world & that she & he had fallen deeply in love, the passion & conviction of his words stayed with me every time we met , i would go home and wonder could there be any truth in his banter, the answer was yes there is !!! Thanks Johan i now know…………………..Flathead power !!!
The hillbilly Flathead is up on the operating table for a quick check, the card has been written so i don't forget anything , looking at this photo it seems my front cylinder has been running a little hot , i need to redial in the mag too. what I'm looking forward to is getting the #1 cam O ringed by Master Engine Boffin, F. Langen , this will hopefully stop the dreaded Flathead leaking problem , more on that at a later date, so stay tuned !!
This Photo of Jerry Branch & his Drag bike from 1950 is amazing , just look at the folks in the background wondering WTF they are seeing , even their clothes, & bikes are just as interesting to us today as the Panhead knucklehead power plant Drag Bike was to them back in 1950
One things for sure this guy had Balls, Mr Knievel but sadly most don't have the Balls they were born with today , like the two Ragheads trying to bust the door open on my van today, i was just walking round the corner, as luck has it, i had my tool belt on , so i caught the little scumbags unawares with one good blow to the kidneys with my trusty crowbar , course the little fucks run like scared little girls instead of fighting back . Unbeknown to me they fucking ringed the police and said that i had assaulted them !! even the pigs are spineless fucks afraid to say anything in fear of any racist repercussions,now I'm the fucking baddie , this is another fucking classic case of
..........What is the world Fucking coming Too........
