    Lots of assembly progress done. Received the wrong sized fork gaiters so had to stop before putting in lower forks. But look pretty good so far I think!

    How to separate two piece rims that won’t come apart?

    I have a Heald superbronc vt8-12 after I removed the axle the two piece rims won’t separate? I took the valve stem out and still can’t seperate the two piece rims? Even put stem back and over filled the tires? Any suggestions?

    Any one know Heald VT812 rear axle and rim size?

    Hello everyone, I’m looking to find out what the rear axle and rim size is on a Heald superbronc VT812? I’m trying to figure out a way to put a rear disc brake on one. I don’t have the correct motor or any rear brake on it now. The drum on the front isn’t stopping it now. Thanks!

    Any suggestions on prepping frame for paint? Probably using rattlecans.

Any...
