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

  • started to populate my handlebar with brake levers corresponding with Sturmey Archer drum brake + Shimano Roller brake and shifter corresponding with NuVinci CVT hub
  • linked up all the cables to the newly populated handlebar accessories
  • installed gear ratio selector onto NuVinci hub
  • made a bracket to fit my pletscher style rear rack w/ gas tank to the wishbone style stays (still needs work-- gas tank not quite level yet...))

Just about finished it. Installed new head-bolts and sanded the head, and plan to go up to ACE to try and see if I can get a spark plug.

Hay RC-if you're dishing the wheel to center of the hub you're going to need different spokes that are the same length use a front wheel for parts-remove cog-first- spoke go from inside of hub flange out-most rims have off set spoke eyelets right side left side keep that in mind attach first spoke TIGHTEN NIPPLE (3)TURNS-on the same side of hub as the first spoke skip one hole and same as before go from inside of hub flange out-attach secant spoke going straight not crossed to the rime in the 4th empty eyelet continue this pattern for 9 spokes-now turn hub clockwise so as the spokes are holding hub centered-on the same side of the hub as the 9 spokes that are in now spoke from out side hub flange in-now cross spoke under the one next to it clockwise and over the next one and into the rim eyelet secant form the spoke just crossed do this with 9 spokes-flip wheel over repeat the lacing-true wheel
