I had a MB 180 back in the day, DT175 piston, casing opened for the cylinder spigot, cylinder head slotted into top of cylinder. I recall it being incredibly torquey and smooth. I inherited the engine off a friend who had it built but then had a bad smash on his P2 and didn't want to ride anymore. The engine came without a clutch so being skint I just threw any old clutch at it which made it unreliable and I eventually sold it without getting the best out of it.

Can you remember the exhaust you used?
I've managed to aquire an early mk1 mikeck to use on mine, the cylinders going off to Kegra next week for a fettle and piston so hopefully after doing some crank and inlet work it should be ready to abuse in the next couple of weeks....

Mine used a PM exhaust at that time. The bloke who got it off me discovered a lengthwise crack in the down pipe that was invisible unless the bike was being revved under load. Probably why I couldn't get it jetted in. In my defence, I was skint and trying to run a thoroughbred motor on dole money at the time.
