    Front Fork Disassembly Heald Super Bronc

    @Docdng The OEM Honda boots are very close to the originals in size and shape. The washing machine boots are longer and larger in diameter. And yes the Honda boots cost a few dollars more, until you add shipping, than the washing machine boots but they look and fit right. 31 with free shipping...

    Tire question?

    Rob cut some scrap wood that will hold the tire bead at the 7'' width of the wheel and then get a better idea of the tire fit. The bead is always narrower on a new tire as they usually get stacked instead of racked on the tread. This just flattens the section width and closes the bead. Space it...

    Tire question?

    YES it will fit. It will just take some creative manipulation. You will need to make the rim stable where it will not move or rotate while you do this. It really needs to be locked down to a table or a tire changer. A tire changer is best as it allows the tire to be free when you are pushing...

    The Nicest One In The Country.

    The odd thing I see on this bike besides the obvious seat position is that it has a battery and a starter but no factory key switch and mounting plate.

    DB 30 Forks

    TNT. Clamp them to a bench and bend them cold.

    Alexander and Reynolds Mini Bike

    Forks would be very easy to straighten. Clamp them to a bench with the bend at the edge and unbend them. You wont even need any heat.

    Heathkit Hilltopper find and build

    Hey Rob I like this stuff far better than the old plastic split loom stuff. A piece of heat shrink on the end will lock the cover in place and protect the terminal at the same time. Very abrasion resistant and easy to use after a couple of times to figure it out...

    repair after setting with gas for a year

    We always used anything we had on hand. Bolts, washers, nuts and some chain. Then we got tired of shaking the tanks and wised up. We put them in the bed of the truck and they rode around for a week. Turned them everyday to cover all sides. They would be nasty when you cleaned them out after...
