Time to go all in!
« on: March 03, 2015, 03:23:01 AM »
Ok so it’s finally time to go all in.  Last year my 2006 Military “Ol’Sarge” dropped an exhaust valve seat so I sent it off to ACE for an upgrade.  I ended up with a slightly altered ACE Clubman head as I already had some parts on hand from Hitchcock’s before talking with Tom and sending him my head.  Once the new head was installed I also added an ACE flow matched intake and ACE Aircan and a TM 32 flatside.  The resulting changes to the bike were amazing.  Unfortunately the bottom end is still lacking so what is a guy to do.  Tear that shit down and beef it up!

Update on case work
« Reply #2 on: March 03, 2015, 01:46:19 PM »
Ok so dumping the hump is now officially a one way trip.  I used a cut-off wheel, die grinder, and flap sander to form the cases as close as possible to the original kick start only bikes.  The low end is getting ready to be mailed to Chumma for a upgrade and he can clean up my work if needed.  I plan to JB weld in the two dimples left from the elctric start mounting bosses.  I am pleased with the results considering I did not have an original case to compare it with.

High on Octane there is a 14 foot bar behind the bike lift you cannot see, Bulleteers in passing through North Middle TN are always welcome for for pitservice or a pint!
