I'll always bleed Sox red and piss Bruins gold, but life is too short and I desperately needed a change of scenery.  8 months so far in sunny, snow free SoCal.  Best months in a long while.

  NICE !  Good for you Boggy, So you missed the polar voltexes and Nor'easters  ?....  What a shame  ::)

Hey Glassshouse, Is that a Ural in the garage? Tell us about it. I'm a big fan, & miss mine.
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

  Glasshouse !?  he..he..he.   You have a good Eye. But no sir, close it's a Cj750 OHV. And I don't blame ya for missing it. They are a hoot to ride and built like a tank,oval framed, reverse gear, stone simple and reliable as a rigid pipe wrench......

Hi, fooled me I couldn't see enough of it. It is a beauty!  Seems I remember hearing about it before, you inherited it from your brother.
  Incidentally, those Chinese CJ HEADLIGHT RIMS can be made to work on a Royal Enfield using a 7" reflector. I have one on my G5 deluxe, & used one on my last Ural. They are on Ebay sometimes.
  Thanks for sharing!
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

 Thanks .... and ummmmmmm  ? That is a good idea . Instead of the "eyebrows" that slide under the outer ring.  I like it !  I may have to try swapping them , and see how it looks on the Enfield.

  Here we go again ! :o     Domed forged 500cc AVL/UCE piston.  Lets see ?   I think this go around... first. We will use all the previous engine mods, but  replace the forged AVL piston with this one. And use a stock head....mildly worked. And see how it does ?

Ok.  Now you know some of us would like more information than this.....      Like when said piston plans on making it's new home, and who it's mom and dad are?      ;D      ;)

You know that Gorilla and ScooterBob wouldn't put up a CNC generated pic of something they were thinking about maybe wanting to try and see if they could make  ;) ...... That's the real deal right there - and IF it survives some severe Celtic abuse, then a feller may keep one of the little slugs in his very own cylinder  ;D ........
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

  Soon Scottie !   Just got the pistons the other day. A few are on there way out to the Tundra, so the Earl of swirl can scrutinize and checkerize...  ;D   A little fitting in the jug, and a little cleaning up the head.   Not to long.

  Tune and flog the piss out of it !  ::).....  Gitter' Dunn as usuall  ;)

     Obviously, looking at these three pistons.... stocked dish, flat top forged AVL and the new forged domed deal.  Higher compression is the goal. And to work with the stock chamber.  A little more simple and practical approach this time.   Without the extensive welding up , resizing and reshaping of the chamber.  Sort of , address the bottom of the chamber and leave the top alone.
