    Looks really nice! Congratulations.
    Having a 24mm bore seems to be a good size.

    That is amazing work. Almost makes me want to set up CNC......but I'm having too much fun making mistakes and scrapping parts "the old way".

    Can you tell us a bit more about the valves. Are these just the guides for the valve stems to slide in & something different for the actual valve seat? Kind of hard to make out scale or how it integrates into head.

    Wow, fantastic work!

    Are the distributor and exhaust pipes 3D printed?? Will they hold up to the head without melting?

    Anxiously awaiting videos of it running!
