Living under a tree

I’m sure at one point in it’s life, the grey goose had lived under a tree.  As you can see it’s accumulated quite a bit of junk.  In it’s 32 years of life, this is probably the first time the fender liner was removed.

Corollas and Coffee


Back in the day, Club4ag is where AE86 enthusiasts would meet.  But as the evolution of the scene and Corollas progressed, the baton was handed to the AE86 Nights.  To my dismay, AE86 Nights didn’t happen for 2017.  Who will take the baton for the next generation of Corolla owners?  Behold the Café 86, will this be the corolla event for the next group of Corolla owners?

While putting together the Black Ice, one small detail I notice while doing the conversion.   The e brake cable guide profile is slightly different between the SR5 and GTS.  The profile on top is SR5 and the one below is GTS.  The SR5 looks to be slightly shorter than the other.  The handles themselves were of equal length using my eye and sitting them side by side.  It seems that SR5 handle would provide a better mechanical advantage to locking up the rear brakes.  The down side would be the extra travel for the brake handle.  Though I never heard of such conversions, I'll probably give this a try since I've both on the work bench.  If I don’t like it I can revert back to the GTS setup.  As to when is anybody’s guess.

1/4 liter 6 cylinder

This is Honda’s RC166 MotoGP bike from the 60’s.  Revving to 20k RPMs to make 65 and sounding beastly.  Not bad for something that has 250cc’s.
