Title: identification..show me your numbers
Post by: shuswapkev on 14 Mar 2014 at 09:36
kevin here on the gold coast queensland
I have bought a small bit of douglie and would like some help identifying so I can start the search for parts....looks like a good project

engine number YE21139  has a flywheel clutch..and that's about all I know...

what I need??   well...easier to say I have ....the bottom with crank and rods..one cylinder..and..yeah that's about it  for the engine..i need oil pump..and at least one piston...to make a copy..unless they are still available

near all of my old bikes have started out with just one small part...and I,m pretty good with engineering and fabricating

Hi,
You have the makings of a 27' EW 350. I rebuilt one from a collection of bits and made the rest. I was surprised by what a nice bike it is. You might struggle getting all the parts but be patient. They are out there.
After some investigation I used pistons from SOHC CB750 Honda. I feel they are far superior to the JP offering which seems to have had mixed wright ups. You will need to skim a few thou from the crown and ream out the small end bush to suit the Honda piston.
Good luck.
Andy.
