Thread: WLDR ball-bearing "cheater" motor information needed!

    Hi Herb,
    I have my Father's 1940 WLDR. We opened it up today and what a thrill to find it is all ball bearings in there and a forged flywheel with magnesium pistons! I believe this motor was not apart since the 50's.
    How is your "cheater project" coming along?
    I am anxiously awaiting your results.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    Louie,
    Unless Sifton moved the carb to the right side and added push rods that bike is a Knuck.

    I had to look again, and you are right, at least to my old eyes!

    Hi Dan,
    Do you want to buy a boat? I saw your post and couldn't resist.

    Hi Tom,
    We have a signed contract to sell the boat. Fingers crossed. Your loss.
    How does your bike run with the transmission repaired?

    Good thing. As you know I don't want no boat anyway,I've got bikes to drain my bank account. Good luck on your sale.
    The bike runs great and no more trans issues. I'm planning on riding the hell out of it as soon as my wife's hip is better.
    Call me if you get down this way I'll buy y'all dinner and a beer.
