  1. Nearest shop to me is 60 miles, but I've been changing tires since 1972. Can't balance a beemer rear without a wheel specific adapter, use beads. Handiest bars I have are the BeadPro by MotionPro. I've changed auto tires using those. https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0536
  2. And put a Harley sticker on it.
  3. On another side note, waaaay back, 1974 or so, One of the other mechanics was working on a Honda 350 trying to get it to start. He had replaced a few parts to no avail and asked me to look at it. I hit the start button and told him that the battery was connected backward. He said no, I checked that. I convinced him a new battery would fix it, it did. Apparently the owner had the battery go dead flat and charged it with reversed polarity. It was spinning the starter backward.
  4. Sorry for the mix-up. I will take the converti bars.
  5. Why the pivot pegs? I like them on the GS but on that?
  6. Well, that sold fast. Sadly, not to me.
  7. I have a friend here that immigrated from Greece, with a fraction of what he had. Actually he came with the dollars he had stashed because the banks froze all accounts. The Greek financial crisis if anyone recalls. He has been warning me that it is beginning to look the same here. So buying things makes some sense.
  8. Or this one. https://missoula.craigslist.org/mcy/d/missoula-2007-honda-vfr-interceptor/7290332973.html
  9. I am somewhat tempted to get this just to go along with the AT. https://missoula.craigslist.org/mcy/d/corvallis-2007-honda-vfr800-interceptor/7297970361.html
  10. Or braid loops on each end. Even better if you slip a swage on first and crimp the end of the loop
  11. Or move to Montana, I don't think it's ever been warm enough to have the fan come on.
  12. Wish I knew what this was in, but I'm happy not to have to drive it.
  13. Could this be called a cluster fucked?
  14. OMG

    Useful trick

    Honda BMW shop 1973 useful tip - no pun intended. The air device shown was also use with the rubber tip removed - insert short phillips screw, point it in a "safe" direction and strike the operating handle smartly and it will send projectile with enough velocity to penetrate a hollow core door.
  15. OMG

    What is this?

    I wish but not mine, my son saw it and wondered. It's in a garage in California
  16. OMG

    What is this?

    I don't know what it is but a filtering device sounds right.
  17. Well if it's speed you want, there is this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQh56geU0X8
  18. The problem with electric vehicles is that you can't carry an extra gallon of amps with you.
  19. OMG

    What is this?

    My son is wondering, two pressure gauges 60psi, two valves into the top two on the bottom. Two small valves on the top with glass chambers just below them. Alternate sections appear to be piped separately. 2020121895152707.mp4
