    Followed me home ...

    If you zoom, the lower fork legs are larger diameter than the actual fork tube. My guess is someone slipped those bent legs over the cutoff lower forks and welded them on.

    Need throttle linkage advice

    Take the spring from the throttle shaft top plate going to your cable off. Not needed. That should help as well as the link provided.

    Elephant wax has worked well for me but if the vinyl is actually brittle and cracking apart nothing will save it.

    Thanks to member FloridaMiniBikes for a great transaction

    Just wanted to post a quick thank you to @FloridaMiniBikes for a smooth transaction of his Tec Motorsport H50 he sold me.

    New project

    Looks good. What are your plans for a seat? There is someone who makes a fantastic reproduction. It's well worth the price and time it takes to get it.... If you are planning to get the repro decals and need accurate measurements for placement send me a PM...

    Is this nut for flywheel sufficiently tight?

    Karen is correct. You can put it on and impact it tight but the taper is a few degrees different. If safety is your concern, don't do it. Use the Kohler flywheel that is a direct bolt on. If there is another charging coil flywheel for the Hemi, I'm not aware of it.

    Faked Ruttman ID Stamp ?

    The stamp sure look to have weathered 50 years of life as well as a few paint jobs. I agree that the rear axle drop outs don't look quite correct though. I no longer have a washer frame for reference to be sure though...

    Mini bike interview from my friends at GPS

    Super cool! Like I said on FB, it would be cool to see this from a few more members of the community. I've seen your name pop up in some of the groups and it's fun to put a face/collection to the name.

    Definitely a Bonanza but possibly a MX 1310 TCS?

    Dave, someone was reproducing the tall JS plates needed to convert a standard frame but I cannot remember who? It may have been @Hent and I when I was working with him. I know I had a set of them in my stash but gave them to someone who needed them for a conversion. @Peekster may remember as...
