500 Dragonfly
« on: 13 Apr 2008 at 21:10 »
Hi all again
The old grey cells seem to be working over time.
After posting on the subject if sidecars, made me think about the mods on the bikes to pull the sidecars along. In particular the increase in engine capacity to 500cc.
Now the little I know about this is that special barrels had to be cast and the use of Triumph pistons and liners.
Thats it, my knowledge on this subject is at an end. Can any one let me know what is required to make this work.
i.e. does the crank case need to be modified/ machined. Doe the cylinder head need to modified,
Any information on this subject would be great.
Regards     MRD
