Yes- I would like to change ignition, but still looking at various options.

BSA B50 ‘Gold Star’ 500SS

For some reason, I always wanted a BSA 500 MX. I missed out on a good deal a few years ago and I sorta look every so often. This 500SS (Street Scrambler, also known as Gold Star) popped up. I realized I probably could actually use this, since I am not racing anymore, so would likely rarely use the M...

Re: Z1R BUILD

Neat jig to install engine. I tipped the engine on end, and lowered the frame over the engine with my sei. But I like the way you did it.
Great idea with the carbs.

Re: Benelli 250 2C

I’m working on another one of these for a buddy. I was going to start it before changing the Vape ignition/charging. But left cylinder has no spark. Then I found the flywheel nut loose and flywheel loose. So I think it was parked due to now spark on that side. I suspect the condenser (points tested ...

Re: Benelli 250 2C

Foolishly blew $$ on some new exhaust pipes.
