Superscopic trees in the making! These narrowed trees have a traditional Swedish longbike offset with a 7 degree rake. No fancy tools or computers involved. I freehanded the shape of the trees on the backside of a 12-pack using a few old pens, calipers and compasses. Then it's time for some old fashioned carpentey to get the casting patterns in shape before the sand casting process starts. This work is super fun and dosen't cost more than a 12-pack of beer... #VARDHALLAOVERDRIVE #vard #superscopic

There's a pretty cool story floating around saying Tom Sifton got paid $1000 for every extra horsepower he could squeeze out of the Motor-Company's KR racing program. Now I don't know if all that's true but I do know this was the way he did the combustion chambers on the latest style KR heads used in factory racing. So I set up my combustion chambers just like that removing material at an angle making triangular intake pockets to allow more air/fuel mixture and higher flow. These FHP heads are also set up with vertical spark plugs straight over the intake valves just like the KR, a little special order executed in style by our old time friend and mentor @flatheadpowersweden 🇸🇪🏁 #flatheadpower #vardhalla

Here's a couple of the forks we shipped out earlier this week, Midgård Midglides and standard Vard reproductions, we got a ton of forks going out the upcoming months, just trying our very best to catch up on all the orders ...well, if you're gonna be sober you might as well work! #VARDHALLA #VARD #whowillsaverocknroll @s.s.c #MADEINSWEDEN #THEDICTATORS

Here's another obscure part of motorcycle history we're putting back into production this spring: the Speed-E-Shift
I reproduced these shifters earlier as Nick-E-Shifters, but it was all in my spare time, which I could never really find, so I stopped doing them. But now it's time to really BRING THEM BACK!!! In the meantime you can check out this Nick-E-Shift I did for @nikolaadamovic 's stroker Shovel, fastest shifting in the business! More info to follow shortly. #VARDHALLAOVERDRIVE #speedeshift #nickeshift #vardhalla

Here we have a set of special order 4.750" stroker flywheels with the correct OD for a UL Flathead, but since I can't leave ANYTHING alone I had to spend a whole bunch of extra hours on them. First I corrected the excessive radius around the pinion/sprocket shaft collars so the thrust washers can seat nice and tight. Then I cut a few oil grooves to trick some more oil to pass the case scraper and spray on to the front cylinder wall, a place that's always critical to get lubricated on stroker flatheads. Then it was time to trim the fat taking out all the sharp angles and steps, and finally I finished it off by sanding and polishing, something that took over 4 hours alone so now I'll be blowing black shit out my nose for a week but that's what you get for not being able to leave ANYTHING alone! #bigwheelskeeponturning #manualmachining #vardhalla #flatheadstroker

The first Fuel Injector housing is now all finished and ready for assembly. I did the last couple of thousandths in the #Sunnen Hone to get the Linkert throttle shaft and disc to have a nice and air tight fit. Time to mount the Hilborn nozzle and barrel valve! #mechanicalfuelinjection

Welcome to the Vardhalla house of hone! We do both internal and external cross honing on all our gliding fork components using a Sunnen Hone machine and Sunnen external hone tool. We have tons of forks going out these upcoming months and the first ones will start to go out next week! #VARDHALLA #VARD #SUNNEN

Big Port 3.7/16" cylinders for the fuel injected UL. Made right here in Sweden by our long time friend and mentor @flatheadpowersweden 🇸🇪🇸🇪🇸🇪
I just finished up the porting and relieving, next step will be to fit some +2" valves and @charleykarling stroker pistons!

The 'Thor Throat' 1.9/16" fuel injector housing, raw casting made from the same manganese bronze alloy as our triple trees. These injectors have the 4-bolt Linkert flange and use Linkert throttle discs and shafts, and Hilborn nozzles and barrel valves. ...Ready for machining! 💉💉💉 #mechanicalfuelinjection #VARDHALLA

How to fuel inject a 80" Flathead UL part one: Today I finally found some time to get the cam drive done for the Hilborn fuel pump. I started out with drilling out the camshaft using a solid carbide drill. Then I cut down and press-fitted a 3/8" hex bolt into the shaft. Now this turned out alot more time consuming than I hoped because I was sober and hex bolts dosen't have the hexagon in the head lined up with the bolts centerline. So the bolt first had to be centered on a 3/8" bit in the chuck and pushed in place by the tailstock, then turned down to size and pressed in place before finally getting locked in by the tig.
Doing it this way will make the hexagon line up with the camshaft's centerline and as you can see on the dial indicator we're now withit .0003" Next step will be to machine the cam cover but that'll have to wait until next year, because now I have to fix my sobriety. So until then - Have a great New Years everyone! #VARDHALLA #mechanicalfuelinjection #weloveyouLitaFord

Sneak peak of The SUPERSCOPIC Front Fork!
This is a +22" over Vard style front fork that will come with 7 degrees raked out trees. We're still working on the wooden casting patterns for the trees but the first set of legs are done already! The Superscopic Fork will be availabe in any lenght, chrome plated or dipped in black acid (as shown in video) and ready for spring 2018 #vard #VardhallaOverdrive #superscopic

Getting the lathe cleaned up and dialed in at the new shop, sure takes some time but good fun for sure...
