  1. I have 2 of those right now, the header pipes are trashed on both of them. In fact they're trashed on every one I've seen & new replacements are extremely difficult to find. The pipe wrap may simply be cosmetic.
  2. yeah, the gearbox is bulletproof. Pistons and rings are the few things readily available online.
  3. I'm in the midst of rebuilding one at the moment. Here in Bulgaria they're still readily available & relatively cheap; about 200 euro for a (beat-up) but running '60s era Planeta 2. Spare parts are an issue, especially with the current EU embargo on Russia. Most Russian suppliers simply won't/can't ship to me anymore. The parts that ARE available are generally for the Planeta / Jupiter 5 models and may or may not fit the model 56. The Izhvesk factory is still operational, OEM parts are out there subject to my comment above. Chinese parts are available but should be avoided if at all possible. Weak spots? It's a 350cc two stroke engine. It probably won't pass an emissions test in any civilized country. You know those fancy smoke screens that the James Bond cars put out? This thing has one activated by default. If that doesn't bother you, then nothing else about the bike will. You can check out my project at https://www.facebook...=1&l=3efbd758f1
  4. I'll have new stock in first week of February. Sallen will also have them at the CRAP rally, see his post here. Guys, please note that my email has changed to charvin23@gmail.com - there's no way for me to get notifications from Yahoo anymore and I'm dumping that account.
  5. ^ Much thanks for this, makes my life a bit easier ;)
  6. IMPORTANT ######! READ THIS: Pursuant to agreements with other MC's in Europe, the full back patches are now only available with an MCC lower patch unless you speak to me personally first. I'm busier than a three legged horse at the Kentucky Derby, I don't keep a bunch in stock and I don't watch this forum regularly anymore- so you need to EMAIL OR PM ME before sending cash. My email is charvin23@gmail.com. SINGLE SMALL PATCHES ARE NOW $10.00 because of increases in postage costs. IF they are combined in an order for a large set or multiple small ones, they will still be $6.00. Thanks for understanding, I'm doing my best to keep up but I have 3 bikes under construction and multiple parts on order- I often forget about sporadic requests for patches. Cheers guys, Charlie
  7. Sorry, I don't check this thread on a regular basis. Patches are available, you just need to PM me or email charvin23@gmail.com.
  8. And yes, that is a flat tire on the back dammit. Had two filler chucks for my compressor and both of them failed...
  9. The new foilhead is a particularly tall guy, stock riding position was out the window.
  10. yep, bar end turn signals at the buyer's request. Engine is stock except for the 12v conversion & carb mounted filters.
  11. In what may possibly be the longest running build in RIMC history, the M61 is done. Check out http://www.fleshandr...surrection.html
  12. With the spark lever set at full advance gap the points at 0.45 mm - TDC is pretty much irrelevant, but you can find it by pulling the plugs and feeling the piston with a screwdriver blade. http://www.goodkarmaproductions.com/HTML/Tech.html - check the iframe at the bottom of the page.
  13. why ? BTW, sorted that almost a year ago but thanks anyway ;)
  14. I can still do $6.00 on the small patches if they're combined shipping with a large set, but if ordered separately I'm going to have to jack them up to $10.00 to break even on airmail costs. That doesn't happen very often to be honest, just figured it out the other day.
  15. It's an 1953 M72. That piece of crap car wouldn't stand a chance, something I've already proven a few times ;)
  16. Please note, due to a rise in postal rates over the last few years the large set is now $30.00 USD including shipping. John, I tried to send you a message but your box is full or something: please make a note of this on the pinned thread.
  17. наздраве всички - A few years back somebody emailed me a bunch of photos of the KMZ factory which they took on a vacation- unfortunately I've somehow managed to lose the directory they were in. I can't find a copy in my email and I also can't remember who sent them- curses of old age- If that sounds like you would you please hit me up again ? I have a couple of projects I'm working on and high resolution pics of the factory grounds seem to be strangely difficult to find. Cheers, Charlie
  18. Looking for NEW (not refurbished) G-414 rotor, drive gear and brushes / PP31 regulator at a decent price (ship to BG). I know I can find them online but the damned things are not made out of platinum. thanks, Charlie
  19. We've been using a MS S2k3 based host for ages, and as I built my website in a somewhat "modular" fashion I got a little sloppy with the filenames/code. Linux is straightening me out. As I told John, best to go to the main GKPpage and bookmark stuff off the menu there: some other old pages have also been shuffled around and as I have 20 years worth of links floating around the web a lot of them may be extinct. Sorry James, no video this time- was touring the Rhodope mountains on the Intruder, riding with another MC and didn't really have the chance to photograph much besides the Point's rear fender ;)
  20. I was running K 68's on my M72 for a couple of years but never really liked them: the only advantage they ever gave me was the larger bowl so the gas didn't evaporate out when I shut it off on hot days and my set seemed difficult to balance. I've since gone back to bullet proof K37's. Nonetheless, I've never used the air choke lever and almost never used the enrichers even on subzero days. mowich is right: Tickle the carbs until you get a drip, kick it 3 times with ignition off, turn it on and you should get a 1 kick start if it's tuned right.
  21. Pretty much every ride I do has an open invitation attached
