The cats going to be out of the bag shortly.
THE BIG BASE SPORT SCOUT CYLINDERS ARE NOW BEING OFFERED FOR SALE! It is my understanding that these cylinders will also fit the 101 Scout.
At this point we have cast 5 sets of cylinders, modified all the fixturing, and written completely new CNC programs.
They are 100% made in USA, cast in certified Grade 30 cast iron at a small foundry in Rhode Island whose owner is a past president of the American Foundry Society, stress relieved and normalized, then machined in house on our own CNC machining centers.
Every effort has been made to maintain the highest quality and to be a bolt on fit to the original parts from the Indian factory.
Actual changes from the original include slightly thicker and 1/4" larger base flange, blind holes for head bolts, with smaller and better shaped ports.
Cylinders are sold unpainted, standard bore -.003 ready to hone, valve seats and bowls roughed, ports as cast, machined for standard nipples. All other machine work completely done.
Rather than discount our parts to be able to wholesale to other sellers, we prefer to only sell direct and spend the dollar difference in making the highest quality product on the reproduction market.
To compliment these new cylinders we are having brand new forged racing pistons manufactured by Wiseco. Designed to fit standard rods they feature the Bonneville pop up, coated skirts, rings are all modern state of the art - 1 mm top, 1.2 mm second, and a 3 piece oil, top ring is gas ported. Standard bore only at this time.
We are aware of earlier cylinders manufactured from these same patterns which were not 100% correctly machined. These have “USA” cast on the outside flange of the cylinder base. We will attempt to re-machine these parts to a useable condition. Please contact us to discuss.
We have also completed the castings for Sport Scout intake manifolds which will accept the standard 3 bolt linkert, 4 bolt , or 38mm Mikuni. Just have to do the fixturing and programing.
Lastly, we have castings for the 648 Daytona Racer “BIG BASE” cases. Again they are waiting for the fixturing and CNC programing. These should be ready for sale at the end of 2011.
Sorry for the long response, but I wanted to give everyone all the information.
