57 Pan Cases. Good Numbers?

These cases are currently for sale by a reputable shop. Are the numbers good?. I am interested in buying them but do not want to buy anything that is questionable.
Thank you Guys!

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: 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.

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

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...
