Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Bit the bullet and pulled the fork assy. to fit meaningful compatible bearings and races. The stem needed replacing so I clipped one from a sidewalk scoot that uses 10" pneumatic tires. Knurled it so it would fit the triple-clamps and still had to use shims. (The Cerriani fork) In the process, a pinhole leak showed up on the saddle portion of my Hodaka tank. Tomorrow I solder and cover the area with graphite cloth and Sig model airplane epoxy. Now the fork won't wiggle rearward when I use the super good front brake.
