Hi all you great guy's here at HMEM.

I started this Hoglet-project allmost two years ago, and it have been a great "journey" so to speak. Most ups but some downs also(health issues) :fan:
A year ago I was ready to try to start the Hoglet for the first time ;D, it fired on the first attempt ;D buuuuuuuuuut only on one cyl. due to coil issue. *knuppel2* Ordered a new CDI ignitionsystem from S/S Machine and then I had kind of burntout regards the hoglet, so it was shelved over the winter.
I had make a new petrol tank.(The globevalve on the first one was leaking :mad:)
Hooked up the ignition, filled up the petroltank, ignition on, cranked for a couple of times and woohoo1 woohoo1 firered on both and revs like crazy.

Kevin (Costumb) if you read this the "happy Dance vid." will be posted later on when my legs and back are ready.
Here are a link to my build- log : http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/index.php?topic=5910.0

On to some pics. and a short vid.











Hope you enjoy.
CS.

Hello,CS
Brilliant work,my respect.
Sounds almost like my Sportster.
I hope my skills will become good enough to build a similar engine one day.
Cheers,Ralph
P.S. Aren´t you getting too much swarf in your socks,wearing perforated crocks in the workshop? ::)
