Re: Home made workshop tools

Allthread is glorious. Besides as an expedient bushing/bearing press I use it to seal hubs and steering necks (by coating the joint between flat washers and neck or hub with clear RTV) for sand...

Re: What frame is this?

What sort of documentation do you actually need?

Just proof of ownership or proof of origin?

Someone with a titled custom wreck or just a custom title suitable to your project could be a good...

Re: Any tips on installing braided stainless oil lines

Braided oil hoses are pretty but they're best controlled as they are on aircraft using cushion clamps. Otherwise they act a rat tail files on adjacent components and if (route wisely) they get hot...

Re: Brazing, Bronze Welding School for Ignorant Rats

Re: Brazing, Bronze Welding School for Ignorant Rats

The vast majority of WWII aluminum welding was done with OA as "Heliarc" (1941) had just been invented.

The aluminum chapter starts on page 184 but the whole (1918) book is interesting. Labor...

Re: 1984 evo heads and studs

They bolts are not going to fall apart from old age. The aftermarket pigtail kits reduce base gasket seepage but I wouldn't lift a jug just to install one. It's best done when a top end job is in...

Re: Cheap tires?

Re: Rain water ingestion

That's bizarre for one ride.

It also makes no sense that it would take out the charging system, but they're not the most long lived parts. (I replace the complete charging system when I get a...

Re: Norton or how to not behave...

Norton was the perfect vehicle for shady actors because some bikers are as giddy as schoolgirls when they see a cherished decal. Garner's crew have sketchy pasts.

As for the forum, leave it as-is...

Re: Bit of an off the wall topic.

Consider making the bitch bar parallel with the front forks which neatly (almost) parallel the center post. Shortening the fender would work well with that, too. That gives three "lines" at close to...
