What is every ones take on the upper linkage ole on the kicker side of the linkage. My 48 as a larger hole there then the bottom one is and seems to have been made that way as it appears to be nice and round and not wallered to one side or something.

That is factory. Wayne said it needs to have the play to work correctly, but I bushed one of mine with bronze bushings to the same size as the pin and I it works better, imho.  No slop, better gear engagement.

I have my sector gear bushed also . It seems to be a good fit with a tighter action .

My pinion gear is original . Exactly how worn it is Huh It's teeth seems to fill the sector gear teeth nicely , so I can't imagine that it's very far gone .

I milled the radius on the back of sector gear to match radius on kicker.  Wayne as these sectors hardened.  Case hardening was about .035 deep.  had to use carbide cutter to do it!

Don't think I ever followed up with any pics of treading my spokes so am posting now. At testing I found mild steel spokes will roll with one go at them.  The stainless ones I didn't push and made them in two passes. Less stress on die and seem to be better.  Used lots of oil also. Went fast.  Think I did 36 in an hour or so. Maybe a little longer.

Old School Mini Bike Frank has invited me to display my green custom at the Autorama show in Detroit.  He said he is compiling about twenty bikes and wants mine there.  Should be fun plus I get a four day pass to the show!.  Told him we plan to do it and will be getting with him soon to prepare for it.  The show isn't until March 2018.  He says one never knows who you might run into there(celebrity wise) so should be exciting!  Probably going to make a cool stand out of stainless steel to display it on as he wants to put it up on a table of some kind. 

Should be interesting!!
