Nearly Finished (kind of…)

Seems that the restoration phase doesn´t end any time soon…

The rear brake pedal lever got an adjustable screw, in order to make the brake light switch working just when you want it, independently from the brake setting. I also cleaned the breather of the gearbox, because it was spitting a cloud of oily dust through the valve once I was revving the engine up. Easy job, this…

But it was far more complicated to grind a stainless washer into shape, filling the sloped gap between drive train casing and the oil level plug screw. Their slightly out-of-line thread lead to some incontinence before.

My 50 km test ride to Berlin city proofed that my “1+2-washer”-installation was working. And that I will have to address further things in the near future:

  • Urban Motor will set-up the carbs correctly. They are equipped with proper synchronisation hardware. My tools are broken at the moment. And the V2 was running poorly until yet…

  • The new brakes have to run in and need adjustment

  • Clutch and brake lever plus a few Bowden cables are aged – I have to improve this to make the bike running smoothly

  • The new ignition lock only fires the sparks when the starter motor is off – a stupid installation that Urban Motor might change

  • Still, the fuel filler cap doesn´t seal properly, and reshaping both the cap spring and the ramp of the filler neck didn´t help. I hope to find a solution in thicker rubber…#
