This was at Powderhorn. Unfortunately we didn’t get to ride much since “someone” decided to break their foot…RustabusParticipantOctober 26, 2018 at 9:58 pmPost count: 1762
Can’t start my bike!!!!! 🙁 Seems like fuel, I have it to the carb bowl, needle valve and jet seem to be working but gas isn’t going from the carb to the cylinder???? Awesome!! More YouTube videos!! 😉 😉 🙂John JonesKeymasterOctober 27, 2018 at 6:51 amPost count: 5910

Clean the carb. Probably some junk in it….I assume these are a slide carb like a mikuni? You could raise the clip on the needle to adjust fuel kind of like changing jets.RustabusParticipantOctober 27, 2018 at 5:38 pmPost count: 1762
Yeah, pulled apart the carb a few times seems functional?? Moved that pin up as well and still no bueno!!!!! Shot in carb start and still no good, checked my wires…… guess I can check for spark but trying to start it I never got fuel to the cylinder/plug. I bet Ten Bajillion dollars you guys would have it running in 20 minutes!!!!! 😀😀😀Pat KKeymasterOctober 28, 2018 at 7:10 amPost count: 1172
Your probably better off Rusty.
I’ve banged my self up good, 2 times, playing around on JJs gas bike. Twisted my knee up a couple weeks ago, hamburgered my elbow on Friday this week.
Maybe it’s just me. JJ and Corporate seem to manage not hurting themselves.
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterOctober 28, 2018 at 10:39 amPost count: 5910
These are not trick bikes…..8-) And Pat likes to ride BMX style… 😎 I hope we can keep it on two wheels… 😎
I put my “Hot motor” on last night… the damn creigs list Huffy is still the fastest!!!

Yo Rusty???? You figure your shit out yet?? Bad ignition coil? We’ve got ours pretty dialed in over here… Franz was doing brodies all over the place on both of yesterday…. 😎 Now if we can keep from breaking them before I get to take em somewhere….. 😎 There gonna have to be tough to last around here!!!!
I ordered a different engine kit to combine with my other BBR motor that was pulling the head stud…. I’m just gonna use the bottom end, in a ported case and ported cylinder and ported piston I think…. anyway… I’m hoping it’s fast as shit!!! Then I’m gonna put it on a bike that has some performance to it… 😎 Or just have an extra engine…. 😎RustabusParticipantOctober 30, 2018 at 12:44 pmPost count: 1762
Naw, Haven’t messed with it in a few days! I bet you it’s something really easy that I’m missing! I’ll check the magneto and the CID unit eventually and see if that’s the problem 🙂 I did pick up Pat’s bike last night, it’s kind if compact I think it might be a 24 inch frame smilePat KKeymasterNovember 6, 2018 at 8:09 amPost count: 1172
^^ Thanks for grabbing that Rusty. U heading through GJ this weekend while camping?
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantNovember 6, 2018 at 6:25 pmPost count: 1762
All Good!! Heh, last time I heard I’m going Southeast now!!! Might have a Baja at the shop soon though, could load the Murray on top!!! 🙂RustabusParticipantNovember 7, 2018 at 9:18 pmPost count: 1762
Super Annoying that I can only get 90% finished on my shit!!!!jpParticipantNovember 7, 2018 at 10:24 pmPost count: 250
Be happy!! At least ya got shit to mess with!! 😉
Cool bikes, you guys have like 5 different threads of things I wanna do and build and I’m scared to click new threads cause you guys are always doing cool new stuff.RustabusParticipantNovember 8, 2018 at 7:29 amPost count: 1762
Yeah, guess you’re right….. It’ll run eventually!!!!!! 🙂John JonesKeymasterNovember 8, 2018 at 7:34 amPost count: 5910
I wish you could drag that up here with you…. I have some extra parts I am sure we could fix it.. Fun is to be had!!!! But your gonna need two…. 😎
I took that BBR tuning motor apart yesterday.. Looks like it almost seized a rod bearing in that short stint I used it,,, I feel like that crank is junk…. I am done spending time on these unless I am out camping and or enjoying them!!! I have one for each of us.. and they both run great. 😎FranzKeymasterNovember 8, 2018 at 8:27 amPost count: 3101
You better put them away so that your employees don’t ruin them. 😆RustabusParticipantNovember 12, 2018 at 5:32 pmPost count: 1762
Dammit!!!! I’m all fired up on bikes again!!!! Seems like every five or six years I decide that bikes are a waste of time and give away half of my stash only to find myself buying more stuff a few years later, usually Schwinns……. Just swooped these up two blocks from my house!!! Cheap!!!! 🙂
