Re: Panhead VIN help...FLP???

Does it have a title matching the numbers? What state are you in? In CA I would hard pass, but somewhere a bit more relaxed I would take it with title, at a lower price of course.

Re: Requesting help with 94 evo rigid build

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Frame was originally straightened by Dr Johns in Anaheim.

So I looked at the bike for the first time since the breakdown, I usually need a cooling off period after getting it home. The damage is...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Once I sheared a cotter pin, next time the rod snapped, this time the anchor sheared from the backing plate and engaged the brake on the freeway. It was a Paughco, had it for two or three years.

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Soooo, today the backing plate anchor sheered off on the freeway. This brake wants blood.

Re: Bicycle brakes on choppers

Ive seen hidden master cylinders before, cable actuated, but it is hard to do so without planning it for the build to begin with. For instance I would need to fab a mount to the frame and build or...

Bicycle brakes on choppers

Iíve seen a couple old photos of choppers that have bike brakes on the front as a way to skirt legal requirements or just to hold the bike on a hill for foot clutch bikes. As with my recent...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Hey guys, yeah, the axles are supposed to be the same, but I also prefer the way the big blocky early one looks.

Mike, hugely grateful for the offer but I already had a buddy order one of the...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

I have the dual cam front brake drum on the springer from Cannonball. It barely holds me on a hill, bought it brand new. I'm not opposed to keeping the rear mechanical if it would be more reliable...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Hear all of this, but a disk up front is the most detrimental to a classic look imo. It would also add a large unsightly reservoir to my handlebars that I would have to stare at all ride every ride....

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Could be. I was always curious about this gap. It squeezes in the axle plates when I tighten it down and there is no play, but still thought it was odd. The axle isnt long enough to secure if I had a...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

My friend bought one of these but it does not allow for any movement of the wheel in the axle plate to adjust chain tension.

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Never seen someone do it that simply before, must be a reason that orientation is avoided.

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Havent seen a nice way to anchor them without welding on the frame that allows the stud enough free room for chain adjustment. Also would potentially need to widen the axle space from what I have...

Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Re: where to buy blank rims?

I used to see undrilled NOS Akronts on eBay all the time. Should be able to find any rim style you want I'd think.

Re: Hard Case Saddlebag on Rigid Frame

It's just to cover the first mounting holes I drilled that did not work. I plan to get some short bolts and washers to plug those up with after I test this out for a bit and make sure it will work.

Re: Hard Case Saddlebag on Rigid Frame

So here's where we are at. I realized I could just use old fender mounts, which I had two of, and I dont plan to carry too much weight, so just the two should do. I originally mounted it too far...

Re: Stripped Magneto/Breaker Hole

I have the helicoil tap for 1/4-24, I just broke the thread installer tool. What I meant was that I would buy a kit and just use that installer tool.

Re: Stripped Magneto/Breaker Hole

It was my understanding I would need an insertion tool of the same thread. I read about making one by sawing a slit in a bolt, but the only 1/4-24 bolt I have is the one for the mag, and I had to...
