The DT 125 has its new piston fitted today by jnr so tomorrow its oil pump adjustment, increase the flow and bleed the two stroke oil through and its good to go once he has changed the engine oil and filter....Shame its winter and he dont want to get it covered in salty road crud.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

that's some Christmas tree :cool: probably best one I seen I wouldn't be having a toke on it it though I gave it up years ago the shades are gone to **** hear drug testing people 4 years off the road for cannabinoids in your system if you run into one of their check points . I know someone drove into one in the middle of the day recently . their is a war on jrugs pot heads are handing in bongs and packes of king size rizla all over the shop . :compress: the worst was a contraption of a tree I ever saw was made from wire clothes hanger's and silver tinsel and that was only a few years ago it was ****ing brutal I felt like saying hey 1976 called they want their really shitty Christmas tree back :lol: I had been looking at 2 strokes on youtube lately with misty eyes until I saw that piston then I got a flash back to the good old days when we used to jump on a train to Dublin to go to city spares to buy barrels pistons cranks and all for 100cc 2 strokes after we seized them . lads we getting on trains carrying petrol tanks wheels exaust pipes long hair ac dc t shirts leather jackets and roll ups . I went in a pub very near the old city spares to buy skins one day and a funny old man was telling the bar man not to sell them to me because I had long hair and I wanted them for smoking hash :happy6: that's 30 year ago .

I enjoyed playing with jnrs little 2 stroke but I wouldnt buy one again.Its only done around 14000 miles and this appears to be having its 3rd re-bore..I just hope the bottom end is ok.
Me an jnr will be working over christmas on the Triumph project and then in spring I will probably swap the Triumph for jnrs XS400.
I am so not looking forward to jumping up and down on a kickstarter several times a day, I had enough of that nonsense when I sold my last SR500.
Its a blessing when you reach 60 to have a bike that has an electric start, maybe I should just stick my standard carb back on my Dommie, buy it some new tyres and go and enjoy that for a while.

My little bodger appears to be evolving into a proper mechanic.:blob5::blob5::blob5:
He sent me this video today which makes me as happy as a pig in a poo pen.

Only problem is now I am so jealous because he is 19 yrs old and has a properly sorted 22bhp totty magnet to go and have fun with..:D
This jealousy will probably go away on christmas day when we start putting the engine back in my TR6R with jnrs help....

Them TR6R lumps are heavy and I am not a teenager any more....:(:(:(

My bodger son has finished his XS 400 and I thought I would share a photo of his project...
He has already found a buyer and is moving on to his next one if they can agree on a price..:thumbup:
We have already found the next project, but we have to get it for a good price.

Its another jap classic and I cant wait to collect it if the seller accepts our offer.
