Scored some Maxi and Magnum side covers courtesy of Anthony at Minnow Motorworks. He runs a tight little shop building and blasting peds around town. Check him out if your ever in the islands.

A need for my sandblast cabinet resurfaced while I was working on my Puch No. 5 bike. I wanted to paint a set of star rims I purchase a while back. I didn't what to spend the effort to paint strip and sand these rims. I made a blast cabinet using an old electrical utility cabinet that I got for free. It worked when I used it to blast the frame of my Autisa Puch Maxi. The cabinet has been in storage for the past five years. I figured its a good time to unpack it and make some improvements.

Started to work on Puch No. 5 power plant. It's the ZA50 setup that I was blasting all of Japan with. Check out some of my Japan adventures here. Did the initial tear down to assess the damages:

I destroyed my Powerdynamo magneto a couple of months ago while riding. Not sure what happened. Three magnets came off and got crumbled. I suspect either my magneto go so hot that it melted the magnet's adhesion (unlikely) or for some reason my crack tolerances were off that caused the magneto to spin off centered and clip the magnets onto the ignition (more likely). In either case, it got f#cked!!
