Default Re: hello were shop dogs.

well we learned a few things on this build, the leather pucks worked ok . we found that super glue works great on leather and that it's better to punch holes then to drill them. the tearing from the drill bit may have been the cause of the earlier faluire. then when glued together on the bench they installed with no problem.
MJD made a cool little alignment tool that solved the problem of the sprocket being out so far and i found an old hardy for fence part fab that made great gas tank mounting brackets.
next up is lights and signals then bob the fenders and fab some better struts
got a "taking too" by the local pd and found out that i need title and reg? but hey no ticket.
any body else in IL. got a title on a home built?
thanx motorbiker the rimm was out of true and only took a few min to fix , what guage spokes are you guys runing anyway?
