It's a CL160 frame, and a CL175 engine. I started racing a CL160 in '06, up here in the PNW in the "Formula 160" class of vintage racing. Eventually swapped out the engine for a 175 to stay competitive, since everyone else was doing it. I "won" the class championship in '11, but I suspect it was because the same two fast guys who were trading the championship for years decided to sandbag and hand it to someone else, to keep hope alive for the rest of us.OMG! That's some serious racy bits! Tell us more about the bike and racing it!
I've probably only saved a few pounds overall, not enough to make a big difference. I'm doing all this Titanium stuff because I can, relatively cheaply, and I enjoy it. There wouldn't be much benefit to the weight saved using Ti hardware in the rocker arms. Those bits are already so small, and I think they're high-strength, hardened fasteners. Not worth the effort, nor the risk of failure. I'd be more interested in Ti connecting rods, lightened wrist pins, and forged pistons. Maybe someday...Wonderful work there, thank you for sharing these with us. I wonder, what is your total weight savings is so far? Have you made or thought about Ti tappet adjusters and nuts?
Would they help it to rev more freely?
I don't recall, probably Vicious Cycle in Portland, OR, a long time ago.WHO DID YOU INTAKE FLANGES FOR YOUR CARBS
