Updates to the engine rebuild section & a "translation of the Cosmopolitan Hi-cam workshop manual:

One way to nail together your  Parilla HiCam engine - yes it is possible to rebuild an engine.....If case polishing & unblued exhaust pipes are your thing then don't waste any valuable buffing opportunities by reading this.

No qualifications for writing this other than I've probably broken more Parilla parts than you & this might save you doing the same thing...maybe.

Usual disclaimers - basically - don't come complaining to me when  when it breaks

Over the last 12 months my mailbag is full of people wanting to know about a bike on auction, a bike for sale on ebay, one they've seen in a dealers. Always the same questions so I've added a "valuations section". Or more correctly a "Moto Parilla" FAQ. Follow the link:
