Twins

Hello everyone!

Great news, two new bikes have arrived! One blue and one orange AS2J from Germany. They were delivered by Transart last weekend, the freight only took two days! They both run but they’re in need of work.

We also have a new update for the orange AS2C project, just a small one today.

Summertime

Hello everyone

Summer has come to Sweden, if only for a short while, and progress on the bikes has continued.

We have a small update on the yellow AS3 and a big one for the orange AS2C’. In the AS2C update there’s a special treat, probably the easiest way of assembling the pistons and cylinders.

Until next time!

Pistons

Work is continuing on the AS2C, the electrical system is wired, the rear wheel is assembled and a lot of little things. The big one today is the pistons, a lot of people assemble the pistons before they attach the cylinders which can be complicated to line up correctly. The easiest way of doing it is to place the piston in the cylinder before attaching it to the connecting rods. You can see the entire process in the pictures below. The plastic bag on top of the cylinders and the paper down below is just there to make sure no small parts fall into the engine.

Oily forks

A special for the yellow AS3, a brand new front fork assembly. They’re packaged drenched in oil to make sure they won’t rust while in storage. This is the first time since it was made in 1970 that this one is out in the air.
