It may be quiet on the blog
Quiet on the blog but it has been busy in the workshop with a number of projects progressing. My VSCCS application has been approved in NSW and I am just waiting on a response from the WA Department of Transport. And the picture? Well one of the projects in progress is a rebuild of a 1974 Honda QA50. This is the engine casing after a quick bead blasting.
The Honda QA50 is similar but not as popular as the Honda Z50. It came with a 2-speed gearbox, hard-tail frame, and pushrod engine putting out 2.5hp.
Here are a few before photos to show how the cases looked after more than 40 years of wear & tear.
The new media blasting cabinet is doing a great job of cleaning up the parts. It uses a lot of air, so a good compressor is needed. The standard light is almost useless so the cabinet is being upgraded with LED lighting.
