I need to get photo sharing sorted following the Bucket debacle.
Haven't posted here fro some time, thought it worth mentioning that I still view the forum and its good to see it is still active in face of the FB onslaught that appears to have killed off most forums.

So ... the MZ has been thrashed to death for over 10 years now through road and track days and pleased to say other than a mid term top end inspection she has not yet been rebuilt. I'm likely to do a partial strip and inspection and any remedial this winter but don't envisage anything urgent. I'm trying to track down a low 5th gear modification so anyone with any info much appreciated. Seems the recent batch for the MZ series boys has been sold.

I'm planning to build an alloy frame project based on the Herrero Ossa machine maybe with a thermo syphon based liquid cooled barrel based around a 250 MZ unit. I'll post some conceptual drawings on here in due course .... a sort of pre-retirement project. Why am I bothering .... because I can!

I'm thinning out in order to begin a new project. Plan is to construct a light alloy monocoque chassis housing a two stroke single close to the design of the Ossa campaigned by Santiago Herrero in the 70's. I'll use a heavily modified MZ 250 unit because I know what I'm doing with those and spares and tuning readily available. I have preliminary plan and due to start the mock-up in light alloy sheet this winter.

I have a couple of fabrication options, one is riveted sheet, I have test box sections and strength and resistance to stress fracture would meet the requirement if designed correctly. My son worked in aviation restoration on Superrmarine Spitfire wing sections also have friends in the aviation field which is handy. Alternatively the there is welded alloy fabrication but I prefer the former.

I'll post some pice and articles as it progresses.

Shed Built FB Group ... hmmm, I'd rather invite conversation through this forum .....
