Easy Halogen Headlight

Yeah so Cody wanted to upgrade his headlight on the Pinto since it has the treats CDI. It was pretty simple to do actually, 10 minutes tops. We took the OG bulb holder out, trimmed off the back portion, filed a groove in the halogen bulb assembly itself so the retaining clip would work, wired it in, started it up and BRIGHT light action. He used a 9006 bulb, 85813 harness and a few electrical connectors. Take a look at the pics, it should make sense. Terry made an appearance and shot the shit as well. Yay.

Sachs Uber Clutch

Ahh, it been a while since Ive been on here. IM starting work on a friends Sachs, he had a kid and has become too lazy to tinker. We had already installed an 80cc athen kit onto the bike as well as simo snail exhaust and a 21mm carb. We actually milled 2mm off the base of the cylinder since we found a HUGE squish clearance. Since this was an A engine we opted to do so since the D engine have a 2mm longer stroke (or rod?). Its a ripper, as in rips the clutch appart. Justin did manage to score one of these Uber clutches from germany any I have high hopes. One thing I doo like about it is that the big washer thingy had been milled down in the center to give more room for a lock washer. I will let you know how it works out.
