Re: Retorqued heads and bikes now running awful

Makes good sense, guess I'll have to be more cognisant of that on my next re-torque although I do check valve lash. Good reminder.

Re: My 73 Triumph build

I think you may have trouble with that front brake. Especially when you need it most, on hard stops. :eek: The caliper should be fixed to the axle for best results and an arm attached to the...

Re: My 73 Triumph build

Well, I would say that's a real decent job. Lots of nice little details to look at.


Curious how the clutch twist grip will perform, and the one pedal brakes. Comments would be great.

Re: Stroker question

Did that years ago on a shovel with 4 1/2" wheels after running 10:1 for a couple of years. The bike became easier to start and saved money on tickets. The bike ran great and still had plenty of go...

Re: Bicycle brakes on choppers

I agree, and possibly even more dangerous braking in a corner with a light front end.

Re: The Toad... '78 Shovelhead

Re: A quality Bates-type headlight

Be nice to see a photo of this particularly bothersome headlamp. I have re-riveted the housing to the base with good success using buck rivets and a pneumatic gun.

Re: '55 panhead french build

I really enjoy seeing all the bits and pieces that JJ posters dream up for their bikes often from stuff that is just laying around the shop. Lots of good examples here, nice work!

Nice little booth...that'll get the job done. Wouldn't mind see the powder coating process, might try that on my frame.

An oscilloscope would be nice right about now that could tell you a lot, especially with all the things you have checked.:(

Re: a little "shut in" work

Yup that's cool. First one I've seen done, and yeah it would be neat if you could run the solenoid through the button as well. Make it a one hand operation.

Re: a little "shut in" work

Nice work on the inspection cover. Matches nicely to the derby cover.


Is that a manual push stater knob...how does it work?

Re: Alt left case Gen R case motor?

This motor has an S&S oil pump and wasn't set up for a rear chain oiling and I have this vent so decided to use it to oil the chain. It's more the loud air sound I was concerned about.
