  • Trikefest 2019 Update and this years COA Fundraiser Bike

    This year is going to be a bit of a special one to many of us - having lost this past year 2 pillars of the event. John Swinehart, which needs no introduction around here for all his help and contributions to this event, the website, and the sport in general. But we also lost Ruth Shelton. She did not post much on the boards here but was another long time TF attendee with her son Jonathan (Xowner) and for years helped out with the drag racing logistics. Printing numbers, helping organize us at the signups at Haspin and offline prior to, brought chocolates/nuts/platters for the front desk and office when she came in (This always helped stay in good graces over the years I think). She also helped keep most of us "up at the house" fed during the week and especially during the busy even days when it seems like getting time to take a pee even is difficult on Friday and Saturdays over the years. We're pretty much all mourning the loss of both of these 2 and I can say for certain the event won't ever quite be the same without either one of them...

    but, the show must go on, so I'm stopping by to give everyone an update that everything is still planning on happening as in years past, but just definitely will be different

    This year's COA Bike is live on the parts shop; http://shop.3wheelerworld.com/index....product_id=448



    It's a super clean ATC200S as you can tell from the pics.


    We also setup the Facebook "event" page for the first time in a few years if you're on there or that is your thing. https://www.facebook.com/events/4543...tive_tab=about


    Plans are still in the works but we're gonna do something a little special for our friends this year to remember them. I hope you'll be there for it. John had attended since the very first one, minus last year while he was sick...almost 20 years worth. And Ruth had been going close to 15 years herself.

      Thanks for the heads up...apparently tappatalk doesnt work with the "front page" of the site anymore... I'll edit with a link directly to the shop when I get back home.

    Piston wrist pin plugs

    Tore into a 90 motor we picked up, pulled the top end, found a sleeved cylinder and the Piston had plugs in the wrist pin holes instead of clips. What brand of Piston is this?

    Not saying that's not possible. I'm sure it is, but I just had that part from a 200S in my hand not three days ago, as that's the bottom end I am currently building. There's a flange on the bearing...

    Sounds like the one way clutch bearing was installed backwards or improperly.

    When's the last time you adjusted the clutches?...

    When's the last time you adjusted the clutches?
    Did the "WORK" you had done involve the person adjusting the clutches?

    It's very easy to adjust them but also very easy to do it wrong.

    Okay so back and finished. Sorry I didn't take pics as I wanted it done and that would have slowed the process. I will tell you my results.

    First I removed the new bearing from the post.
    I then...
