    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    The foundry or metal casting stuff thats been going on the the ESE thread really inspired me to get on with having a go at this stuff. If you can cast metal theres really not much you cant do.

    Question regarding old suzuki 50ccs

    Thread Starter: calm

    Hello I recently got 2x Suzuki 1980 OM50's. They seem to be very similar to models: GT50, TS50, ZR50. Unfortunately it seems almost impossible to get a new throttle/ oil pump cable for my model in NZ, I am wondering if it would be safe longterm to run premix? I have currently tried 25:1, but...
