Corey vs The Light Switch

P1020217
Corey is back in the garage and he’s working on the raffle bike. This means it’s time for a update to this blog.

I’ll try to keep up with Corey and keep all of you updated on the state of the bike, starting now with the light switch.

The bike has been sitting for a long time and the switch didn’t work. Since we’ll have to go through the and the wiring pretty thoroughly, Corey started taking the switch apart and that meant getting out the drill and removing the heads on the bolts that hold the switch to the handle bar.

P1020222 Once they were off the switch popped off pretty quickly and it was just a matter of disconnecting the wires.

The switch itself is in decent condition and hopefully can be reused. When the bike is put back together.

The wiring is a little rough and will need some attention or replacement, but we can make those kind of decisions when we get to the reassembly phase of this rebuild.
P1020225
With the switch off, the bolts had to be removed from the handle bar light switch support.

 
P1020231
This turned into a bit of a battle and Corey had to use release agents and heat.
P1020226
Corey did eventually win this battle and now everything is set aside, ready for reassembly.

 

 

There are more pictures coming and some fun details about the rally. In the mean time, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email.P1020233

Progress!


Good news!

The winter is starting to give way to spring and we’re starting to see some snow melt. This doesn’t mean that we’ve dragged out the raffle scooter, polished it and got it running, but I’m sure (well I hope) we’ll be able to do that soon.

So what’s the news? Corey has demonstrated much patience, jumped through a sufficient number of hoops and has pleasured the Government of Ontario enough that they have given him official ownership of the raffle scooter.

Future owner, send Corey a thank you letter because now you don’t have to do what he did. Transferring ownership will be easy.

Start saving for you raffle tickets everyone!

cold winter in Ottawa

IMG_20140124_183904This winter has brought the coldest temperatures that Ottawa has seen in many years. While that has given us plenty of time to work on this website, it hasn’t been as kind to us when it comes to working on the project bike. Right now it’s buried in Corey’s garage trying to stay warm.
Hopefully the weather will start to cooperate over the next month or two and we’ll be able to start providing some more interesting updates to this blog. In the mean time, we’re starting to pull together our shopping list and organize our volunteers. If you’re in town and want to volunteer some time or parts, let us know.

Curd Raffle Prize: 1964 Lambretta Li 150

The raffle at The Curd Rally is always popular. The prizes are spread out early on Saturday and participants are allowed plenty of time to look over them and make emergency ATM runs so that they can buy more tickets. In 2014, the raffle is going be even bigger! This year we’re raffling off a 1964 Li 150.

Corey has been the owner of this bike since 2011 and while it’s currently showing some age, a talented team of volunteers has been assembled and work is underway to restore its glory.

We intend on blogging the restoration progress here. It might be a little slow until the weather (or Corey’s garage) warms up, but in the mean time we’ll be collecting the parts we need so check in and see how we’re doing.

This is what we’re starting with.
