Thanks bill, that's a great read. Phil ansley has a great photo site. I've lost many an hour looking through it. As for the epicycle twin it has came to a halt with no spark. So the new pvl ignition is being sent back to Germany. So it's progress 0.- stress 10.- pissed off 100.-. Boucher.

The epicycle fired up,a few problems with to much oil pressure, (125psi at 2500rpm and 2 oil gauges) though with a few changes in the relief valve hopefully its o.k. After 32years in runs. Thanks to young Sam for sorting the film.

Nice job Boucher, I admire your perseverance. The bike sounds well sorted. I'll bet you are sleeping better now that it's running. I'd also bet the price for parallel twins will double now that your video is on line. Any plans for a track day? Would really like to hear your bike howling down a straight.
Best Regards...
Flattop

Didn't you feel good when it fired up! And that beautiful custom crankshaft kept spinning around? Really unique. Have fun. MikeV

Saw the complete bike on 3/05. Beautiful; love the details!
