Adventures in air leaks: Exploring 100cc's

A little while back my bike began running like total garbage. MAJOR air leaks. Since it has been steadily getting colder and colder, I sort of put the problem on the shelf. I wanted to open up the engine this winter anyway to see what sorts of improvements can be made. INSERT: lighting coil here.

Tonight I scratched the surface of a magical land. I thought I'd share my discoveries here.

Our journey begins with the Port of Simonini. This holy land is treacherous and is fill with many ports spanning the cylinder.

BEHOLD! The spectacle of ports!

Peer further into the inner cylinder with this port map as your guide

Next we cross the expanse separated from the Port of Simonini and head to Transfer Town. Scientists have many theories as to why the transfers of Transfer Town and the Ports of it's neighbor line up so perfectly. They explain this phenomenon as case matching pangea.

BEHOLD! The awe that is Transfer Town!

Next we head to Coil and Case Caverns! COMING SOON!

Simo dirt bike

1977 mopeds went to a huge conference in Europe and came back with some awesome photos. These in particular caught my eye...

In case you didn't notice, it's got the same simo engine that I have on it.

I know that these are already posted on their blog, but its just too cool not to post up here as well. I don't think I'd ever really go for the dirtbike style but I still think its pretty awesome.

Even More Simonini Ridiculousness

So somehow I now own not one simonini side intake...But two.

The kicker is that I have no project that involves this intake anywhere in gets added to the project pile with the 90cc simo and matching calibratta pipe...
