Re: Dale Walksler has died

Didn't know him, but have known advocates like him, and they are also sorely missed. Hope his legacy lives on.

Re: OIF Triumph semi-restoration

Good idea I think i'll try that. I know if I have heated metal somewhat warm before I spray it seems to look better and dries quicker.

Re: Gloss Black cylinder paint & clear over Alumiumn

Por makes a high temp paint in black, I might try that maybe on exhaust too.
Tremclad also makes a high temp flat black I would use on exhaust and it seemed to work well, even though the Tremclad...

Re: Black rims for BSA

Yes, good advice on the spoke angles...I forgot that I knew that.:confused: So unless money is not of concern or you just want a different rim I would also reuse, clean up or repaint the existing...

Re: NZ Shovelhead build

Just gazing at the bike again. Beautiful build and I can't believe how shinny it is and not a thing out of place. Now go get some dirt and oil on the bike.;)

Re: 50fl

Guess just not that popular in my part of the world. Do much shit on the roads, its bad enough with a 3.00 x 21 speedmaster. I do like the look of the tire reminds me of old traditional rods.

Re: 50fl

That's what I was thinking, but I'd like to know more about it, haven't seen one on a bike before. Looks like one of the tires used on old dry lakes cars.

Re: Powder or paint?

Thanks for the tip! Definitely going to give this product a try. I will try it first on some touch up on the car and if it works I'll use it on the bike frame this winter.

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.

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.
