places that I have been
It's pretty easy to grind that ridge off the brake disk with a 41/2" grinder. The underside can be done by just slipping the grinding disk under the brake disk and watching what your doing from the other side of the rim. Rim needs to be vertical to do that.
The ridge is mostly already ground off of this brake disk. It's not hard to do and makes taking a caliper off during tire changes much easier.
Cheap bastid's seal of approval on the pliers and the 1/4 drive sockets.
Cheap bastid's buy of the season at Ace Hardware....Slime air pump for 7.99. He likes the Cup inverter also, two 110V plugins and 2 USB sockets
Cell phone photo shoulda got the light behind the camera.
Crashed VS700 Suzuki. They were only built in 86. This one need everything from the Handle bars forward. Bent forks and rim...maybe the frame.
Here's the aux gas can for testing. Loosen the cap on top for a vent. Tighten cap and turn gas on it's edge when not in use. Add a lawn mower fuel shut off if you want to.
Ain't that a beautiful bottle? Can you imagine the stove I can make with that?
renewed Kickstand rubber....11$. a piece of hard rubber 9/16X.900X3.125 would do just as well
I wonder what air pressure he's running?
You can grind enough of the bakelite housing away so the left terminal can be removed, then clean the points and epoxy/devcon the terminal spade back on. A little delicacy is required so that there is a gap between the points. That's all it takes to fix one of these thermo switches.
Ray and Steve are good buddies. That's a Big Sabre that Ray rescued form going to a junk yard a couple years ago.
That spring is 2.825 at the bottom and 3.100 at the top with .430" wire
Work the lower end down into the fork seal about 3/8 inch. That verticalish straight height above the 'tip' should be 5/8 to 3/4 long. Grab the top end with a pair of pliers and pull around the fork tube.
