42Hobbies: Change & # 39; 65 Florett Swing Arm Bearings

Small sins are immediately punished by God, average stupidity even later. In my case, it's stupid not to have changed the swingarm bearings of my sheet 65 during the 2012/13 renovation. At that time, the swingarm did not seem to have any play for me. It was not, the rings had an intimate connection with…

Tankschön and start in fourth gear

Lange rested my activities on Elfi. The reason was in my frustration on the tank. Although it has a wonderful look: on the contrary almost without burr, with a slightly weathered chrome, but quite respectable, but on a rather inconsistent aspect for a tendency to the incontinence of the tanks of fuel. In other words,…

1965 – 2015

Some birthdays want to be celebrated. On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of my egg tank, a screwdriver party will soon be held. The target group concerned will be informed by mail.

& # 39; 71 RS Removal / disassembly / cleaning of switching kinematics

As already mentioned, only the fourth and fifth gear can be engaged in Elfi. The cause of the problem is apparently the switching kinematics of the "indirect circuit". The pedal rests on a frame bolt and moves via a lever mechanism, the actual gearshift shaft of the engine. If this lever system has too much…

& # 39; 71 RS Bench Prepare the basic frame.

The bench of the elves must make a new reference. Norbert Quickly-Club, a qualified saddler, will make the new reference and take over the bank. I have the task of working the plinth gammelige abundant. 44 years of humidity have left their mark. Norbert dismounted the bench and made me the base. He advised me…

42Hobbies: New to the Zoo of 50 Cubes: Solex 5000

From the Solex 3800, we separated again ("us" because the Solex belonged to my wife). In one way or another, I had a bad screwdriver karma on this Solex: every time I tried to fix or fix a part of the room, everything was happening bad or was only an average success. In addition, I…

42Hobbies: Okasion! `75 Mars luxury

I must admit that when I was fifteen, so-called department store mopeds had a cooling factor just below freezing. Anyone who possessed something that had already come with a Kreidler, Zündapp or Hercules so (exactly in this hierarchy). The solo and Mars of the source catalog could not be taken seriously. Totally not cool. But…

Long time, no see

Yesterday I was with my dear friend Petra. We do not see each other often, so we always have a lot to talk about. After sharing stories about the latest news of our lives, Petra told me that she had a new hobby. Now you have to know that Petra is an extremely active man,…

Come and I

Well. As mentioned in the last entry, a lot of time has passed without updates in this blog, but not without a lot of changes in my zoo. These changes occurred in the two- and four-wheel sector. A serious change in my professional life has plunged me into the "perfect car dilemma" in 2015 (see…

42Hobbies: My life on wheels

Anyone who follows my blog – mostly myself – knows that I've split my Benz 126er in the spring of 2017. Not an easy but correct decision. The garage now vacant that I wanted to fill again, this time with a real vintage car, so at least 30 years, but 40 to 50 years more,…
