Starter Hub

Allright, time to get busy.
It`s late January so things better get going.
Finished machining the hub for the starter.
Also I got some valuable advice on the starter routine
form the Bikeline Team, Ulf Ögge and his Crew Chief
Ola, Hand Crank using a good quality ratchet handle
to just after TDC, hands off throttle.
If this works allright I´m in good shape for testing
cams and maybe also tune in to E85.
I have to do some homework on E85 ,basically Comp. required and
if/what the Mikinis will react to it, the starter comes handy and tuning in may just be a breeze.

Straight Line Frame

The latest version of this bike uses a Unique frame.
Unique is the effort to maintain a straight line from the Rear axle to Engine drive.
Way back gearboxes where raised for ground clearance on track bikes but on the "Mother" it´s an effort to distribute load.
Unique is also the manufacturer, Unique Custom Cycles (UCC) did this one for Calas High Performance more than 10 years ago and some details are typical for UCC back then.
I´m lucky to get my hands on this one, CNC Engine mounts, gearbox is raised about an inch and tubes are 4130.
UCC are among the most talented chassie builders and I´m truly impressed with everything that leaves their shop.
