I love the muffler Steve. Did you make it out of stainless ? Also glad to see an update on this project.

Nope! Just a piece of steel bar. Not sure what it is. It will all be painted white so I just used what would hold up to the heat.

That's coming together great Steve and the flywheel look very authentic!! One of the virtues of CNC, I couldn't get the nice airfoil shape on the fins like you did. Nice to see an update on this one as always.

Not a big deal but I managed to make and install the cylinder liner. After pressed in, it was machined down to allow the fuel to flow from the valve area into the cylinder and to match the top of the crankcase.
