Haus of Projects / RZ350...#2
« on: October 05, 2022, 01:21:07 AM »
I may have posted about this before, but it's been a busy year and my memory is not my best feature. I'm moving and had to get this rolling in a hot minute, so the front end went on temporarily. Got me excited about this project again! '85 RZ350 with FZ600 swingarm, Fox shock, 600 or 750 Katana rear wheel, CBR600F4 forks and triple clamps and CBR929RR front wheel and brakes. Gilles tooling clip-ons. The forks are on the wrong sides, I know. I was in a hurry, remember?

Temporary home with friends; next stop is with me, so I can work on it again. And the RD. And the LC. And put the CBR suspension/wheels/brakes on RZ #1...winter is coming, right?

The things I do for my kids! Time for new knobbies, and I've put seven on in the last week; two skinned knuckles, but no pinched tubes! All three boys have new rubber, as well as my buddy Ron. Maybe this should have been in the 4-stroke blasphemy category  :whistle:

My bike has gotten no love. That Michelin is a soft-terrain that's at least 15 years old, but it won't wear out! I have a set of gummy Shinkos waiting in the wings for it...maybe I can change two more tires without snake-biting a tube.

Ralph Ponce told me he’s interested in making another batch of Webco style heads with toroidal combustion chambers if he can get enough interest!

Email him, tell him I sent you.

This link came up on the RZ/RD site and the stuff is so cool! We talked about their RZ heads recently, and now there’s an adjustable rear suspension link that’s making my wallet tingly.

Not mine, it's used and might be missing some parts, but the price is OK...I think  :umm:

Same seller as the cut RD350 heads has this water-cooled head "project" as well:

Seller says Garrett cut them, suitable for O-ringed cylinders:

Not mine and never heard of 'em, but they're pretty good looking. For $1300, they'd better look nice.

Brought these home from Portland last week, where I was able to visit Mr. Ron Black:

OEM RZ350 carburetors taper-bored to 29mm (I think I mistakenly said 30mm elsewhere) with divider plates installed and supposedly jetted to suit. Anxious to try them on Ol Faithful.

They might end up on the Rd or LC, who knows?

 :rant-1: Is FB marketplace this difficult for everyone? I've been thinking about joining for the purpose of selling to a large audience without making eBay richer, and when Milan asked for help picking up a Suzuki here in Washington it seemed like the time. The seller ghosted our man Milan, apparently because he's too far away, so I allowed myself to be assimilated. Trouble is, I can't access marketplace! I'm given the opportunity to join endless groups, and I can, through a rather clunky process, look up someone such as Ed Toomey Designs and see their, uh, thread? Kinda cool.
Trying to access marketplace, and using the help center, dumps me into a loop of non-specific tips and links that all lead to "Marketplace isn't available to you now", so I Googled it. Found sites that say marketplace isn't accessible until 11-12 MONTHS after joining. That can't be right! (?)
What am I doing wrong...besides joining FB?   :'(

Big jump from the last one at $20,500; can this continue? As a formality, not mine!
