So I have done some bad welding. What ever. I refilled an OXY Acetylene set my brother gave me before retiring to Kauai (bastard) so I went over some of my crappier welds with bronze braze.

I had to redo the Indian exhaust system. They did a lousy job that simply did not fit. I didn't get this from Enfield USA so shame on me. I am digging the gas welder I got from my brother. Brazing is so tidy and easy. The chrome is taking a pounding and looking rather ratty from my fitting and I will have to decide if re-chroming is worth it or if I should just order something else.

Well today I spent building a bash plate out of 3/16 inch aluminum. The tig welding thing is interesting in that you spend more time cleaning parts then actually welding them. I am almost ready to take the thing apart for paint. Slow progress but at least something is happening.

I built a kickstand for my Bultaco from scratch and it was a bitch to make it work correctly so for the Enfield I bought a kit from Speed and Sport.  http://www.speedandsport.com/index.php/parts/frame-parts/sidestand-kit-universal-weld-on/
The instructions are clear and the parts are satisfyingly well made.

So today I rode the PST Plastered Purple Penguin trial and had a good run. My attitude was in the dumps on the first round when we couldn’t find section 7 and it took one hour and fifteen minutes to find the damn thing. I really was ready to throw in the towel but 3 other vintage riders shamed me into carrying on and I am glad that I did. The rain never let up and the mud became incredibly slippery but I rode well and 2 of the vintage riders dropped out. The other rider Allen was on a 1978 Sherpa T 350cc and that bike and rider found grip everywhere and he bested me in a couple of sections and in doing so won the event. I earned 2nd and also won the raffle and a new Dunlap rear tire.

The wife and I used to ride with the PST in the mid 90's.  Great bunch of people and always helpful with technique or bike set up.

Just so you know if you get drum brakes wet they wont ever work again until you take them completely apart, clean everything and reassemble them with new grease. Just saying...
My Bultaco trials bike has never looked so shabby as after the last trial. I have been busy cleaning and changing oils etc.

I bit the bullet and bought the Changeable Rear Wheel Sprockets from Royal Enfield USA. I searched through the piles of overlay sprockets at our local motorcycle salvage yard and couldn't come up with anything usable.

I just guessed at the gearing and ordered a 46 tooth sprocket. With the 13 tooth countershaft sprocket and 8 teeth more on the rear I think the overall gearing will be close.

I agree. I hope its not going down to much. A trials bike is easier to ride over geared then under geared in my opinion.

I literally just finished cleaning up my old trials bike. Rode it around the neighborhood and its ready for the next event. Either the PST March 2nd Trial on the Isle or Bohnet Motorcycle park vintage weekend March 29 & 30th. Both? Waiting for changeable rear sprocket from Enfield USA for Enfield project bike.

Getting serious. Got the frame bare naked and getting ready for paint. Rattle can all the way for a competition motorcycle. Powder is for posers.
