Re: Bicycle brakes on choppers

I could see it used as a hillholder but stopping a moving bike and rider should be impossible for such a unit. Remember the formula for kinetic energy half the mass times speed squared.

Re: NZ Shovelhead build

First Kangaroo leather seat I've seen. Wonder what else they make out of kangaroos.
Great seat base and transition from the curved fender area to the flat seat base.
Nice design too.

Re: 1965 motor and tranny in a 58-64 frame

I just found this electric start horseshoe oiltank on Instagram. He modifies 58-64 tanks by sectioning the bottom to clear starters, primary housings etc. fits ratchet or turtle top. I'm going to buy...

Re: Plating in a neck correctly

If you feel you must protect the inside of your tubing I would recommend filling the frame with a rust encapsulator like Por-15. Let it sit a little and the drain out the paint and you should be good...

Re: Confused about brake drums

Australia is still in Covid fever and the Fedex shipping from WW to Aus is limited to express freight minimum $135. A little pricey for spacers.
Since the rigid frame is narrower than the round...

Re: The Toad... '78 Shovelhead

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

I find the last shop dope paragraph about brake relining and adjusting very interesting. Loosen the pivot and applying full pressure? I never thought of that.
Thank you Eric. Great contribution as...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

The axles are the same except for the head. I'm kinda partial to the earlier head just because it is so different antique looking.

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Fredo, just because it is Paughco doesn't mean it's perfect. I have a brand new brake rod and clevis I will give you for free. Just don't ask where it was made. It's W&W but....

Re: A quality Bates-type headlight

I'm late to the party but Paughco is still the bates-iest light on the market. Especially the one where the bracket is riveted to the outside. Heavy gauge shell perfect looks. They are a copy of the...

Re: Forks

Hmm, I am of a different opinion. A stock 41mm uses slugs. They are short and called fork tube plugs. Making longer versions of those gave rise to the slug as cheap way to extend forks. A two inch...

Re: Cheap tires?

Cheng-shin makes a 4.00-18 tire that looks like an old Dunlop Trials Universal from the 1960s that isn't made any more. It looks great on my desert Sled Triumph that I do not intend to ride ever...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Many good points Liam. But to me Dick Allen was a craftsman with fabrication skills and engineering understanding. There is something you either have or don't have.
I call it the "Eye". Dick had it....

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Definitively not a Dick Allen. The spring cross brace on the front leg is way too big and the spring rest on the rear legs too thin. The trees top and bottom look like denvers but aren't. Most...

Re: Fork Pinch Bolts Not Holding

A very common problem that is easily rectified. The slots in the lower triple tree are too short due to the way they are machined. All you have to do is run a hacksaw in the slot until the top and...

Re: '63 Swingarm Pan frame question..

Amazing as most of the parts Wasco sells are from V-twin. He even uses parts of the V-twin number as his own order number :)
