Rook’s AV7 Rebirth + Gilardoni

By Rafter

After super AV7 build #1 was fast as shit and lasted only a week, Rook decided it was time to ditch the whole deal and build on a new platform. Enter Gilardoni, our fave Puch kit. New motor mounts including one off engine hanger. “Enter the Ninja” pipe optimized for proper fit and swingability. Lot’s of hacking to be made awesome. It did 60mph easy on it’s first non rainy day run in the dark and cold. Before it ever left our parking lot Rook managed to blow it and soft seize it exhaust side. No big deal. Easy fix. And prior to that even, he had stuffed a big wad of paper into the exhaust port to keep shop dust and debris from getting in while shelved. When we first tried to tune it it was acting really rich and shitty. Nate discovered the paper ball lodged in the pipe stinger the next day. WOW!

Anyway, it rips now and top speed is yet to be seen due to rain. Here’s some images.
