Still running my bike on my modified wrist pin needle bearing and its still going great. last week or so i've started letting it ride at WOT for extended periods of time getting up to top rpms with no problems been up to 35mph. Only problem is the snow has started flying and i dont know when i'll be able to get out again

Been wondering how that was holding up. Thats the one ya took a few rollers out of so it would fit, Right? I guess as long as it fit snug with no play it should be OK. Even with some rollers out of it I would still trust it more than I would a bushing.

Glad to see SOMEONE does maintenance on their bike. Too many guy's (and gals,) just ride em till they break or something falls off. Good call on the pedals, Vintage stuff can be hard to find and usually not cheap.

I can't afford not to do maintenance on my bike. It weighs around 100 lb, maybe a little more (heavy steel frame, worksman front wheel, heavy-duty rear wheel, oversized tank), so its way too heavy to pedal or push very far.

Well after removing the head, and jug I noticed that my crank w was in pieces inside the engine...so after about 30 good whacks from a 20oz claw hammer I now have a beautiful pile of chinese crap in my driveway...gonna have to buy a replacement engine...which sucks because I just dropped 50 bucks on new parts to do a maintenance on it...so I won't be riding for a while...gonna be homeless as of wednesday...wish me luck...

Man, not good Wicked. Wrong time of year to be out doors. Hope you work it out.

Sounds like my bike Big. Steel cruizer frame, steel rims with 12 guage spoke's, Ammo cans for side cases for battery and tools. All the electrics plus Windscreen, speedometer and everything else I could think of to put on it. Yeah, I'm sure it weighs a ton. And to top it all off, I weigh around 230lbs.
I'm forever checking and oiling and adjusting. If I HAD to I could pedal a few blocks on mine, but I wouldn't like it.

Yeah, I got a flat tire once and had to push my bike home about 2 miles. That was a lot of fun.
