Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Put on a new front rim after the one I put on two days ago was ruined when I was hit by a car.

Should be good as new now, except I have two different tires on there now.

Some of them drive way to fast and think they own the raod and are above the law.. I know because. A few guys I went to school with became cops around here, most of them were the goofy type that gotpicked on a little in school but when they got a badge and a gun they thought they were a super hero who could harass whom ever they decided to and drive like a bat outta you know where......
Some are good fellas but we seem to get a pile of the goofballs around here that wont to get even with the world and act like a big shot that can drive 50 in a 30 anytime they wish.

Glad you're alright.

Yes, Glad you're ok after that... and yeah, the cops over here are every bit as bad doing 90+ on the freeways and 50 or so in the 30 zones, then when they wreck it turns out to be nobody's fault...

As far as what I'm working on today... I got me one of those old Girvin/Noleen Vector forks for my bike and I'm taking it all the way apart to clean and lube all the bushings rebuild the shock and replace the elastomer with a real spring, repainting it and getting it ready to put back together and install on the bike. Luckily all the bushings etc are in excellent condition other than being a complete mess from the elastomer melting and leaving a gooey mess all over everything so I don't need to buy any new parts, but I did need to do a LOT of cleaning and need to re lube everything before it goes back together.

Purty cool DaveZ. I had never heard of elastomer.

Is this the type fork you have Dave?



I like the looks of these also with that nice spring.

Yup, the one I got is the same as the bottom pic, this is the older style but they work really well once ya get rid of that elastomer ... the elastomers do work but they become a gooey mess once they begin wear out, but swapping it out for a spring eliminates that problem
