Henry's springer... spacers...

Henry purchased an Attitude springer some time back and is now setting it up. He brought it up last night because the spacers supplied with the brake kit did not fit. Also the brass bushes were incorrect. This is not the first time I have had this problem with these springers, but was not quite prep...

Re: Danny's XS Hardtail...

In retrospect would have been easier in the jig. Also extra time due to inaccuracies means we may as well have started from scratch. I have done a couple of others and had no problems hence the reason for suggesting he save money and buy a hard tail. He definitely doesn't want any rake... will be to...

For you camera buffs...

Fellow who takes pics out of a Helicopter wanted an extension for his camera. Gave us a part of a tripod to use, but we felt it way too under strength, what with a heavy ball mount and camera in the wind and possible damage from buffeting. He needed it in a hurry, so other things this morning got pu...

2018 Kadina Overnighter & Swap Meet...

I haven't been to the Kadina Swap Meet for some years and figured this was the one to go to. Besides things have been pretty full on lately with more than one disappointment, so what better than to hit the road for a couple of days. Actually being a long weekend was tempted to take three days, but a...

Danny's XS Hardtail...

Danny brought his XS Special up today to get a hard tail installed. We had prevously discussed the pros and cons of me hardtailing it or him buying in a hard tail for me to attach. At the price he could get one from Trojan, I suggested he buy one. I installed a premade hardtail on an XS some years b...

Re: Three degree rake, extensions, stainless pullbacks & flat bars

Looks nice. Glad the handling is to your liking. Do you find the steering more precise and is steering easier?

Will do. She has bone cancer and unlikely to see the year out. Still at 87 she's had a good innings.

Re: Vulcan 88 Trike stretch & rake...

Wiring has taken a number of days as original is fairly complex and pretty battered. Will be done shortly. In the meantime a couple of catchups plus a new set of stainless pullbacks. Fork stops weld to the bottom of the gooseneck and are made from 6mm plate cut out to 25mm deep. They will hit the ba...

I'm really snowed under here and not able to keep regular contact as in the past, but hoping it will get bett...
