Burnishing pictures
Beautiful as always my friend.  You never cease to amaze me.
I've been very busy doing jobs for the oldminibike guys. Wheels--by far-- are what I do the most. It's good to get a break and do some kart parts. Here is a quick one from Karl.

I got my hand on a heavily modified K88 and a pretty stock looking K35 today. I've never had a Komet rat motor and was happy to accept the challenge. I've been doing a lot of mini-bike parts and I was happy to get my hands on some K35 parts.
Here are some pics of the rat..

I've done a half dozen mid-70s Komets and they have a different look compared to other engines. Here is a K78 TT with some nice porting which I can't show.

I'm going to be selling my restored sidewinders. I'll post on the site this week.
I got some more engines from FVK. Not everyone wants the "over-burnished" look and I can limit the time in the tank to accommodate. I cut the time in half and they still look incredible. Here we have a LH/RH K88 pair. The turn around time was under 24 hours.

Here are some PP flywheels for Bobby M. They are mostly RH drive, but a few LH.  Thanks Bobby.

Ted sent a 91B1 coupled to a gearbox for some burnishing. I went ahead and replaced the bearings while I was in there.
Here are some GB pics first.

Here is the 91B1. From here is goes to some good hands for a hone/fit and assembly. Thanks Ted!

Tom B. sent an order of Rupp and Margay parts. They were already blasted, so here are just the finished photos. Thanks Tom!

Thanks for cleaning up the spam on this thread. I've been doing so many minibike parts I've hardly had any time to do anything else.
I did want to post this WB580 because it's the first one I've had in my hands. It came with a Pamini Piston.

After. It took an hour to burnish and another 20 minutes to remove the pins. It's perfect.
