Here is a link to some 1.250" ID aluminum tubing, this could be used to make some bushings for those hubs, it ain't cheap but it would do the job.

Might be able to find a cheaper source on this, but this is the first example of it I seen during a search for the 1.250ID tubing.

Thats great, I was thinking aluminum the whole time for some reason and it never dawned on me to consider a bronze/brass bushing that is 1.250" ID

Im assuming thats what you got....

Im just glad you found something that you can use to get those adapters hooked up on the wheels.

I love conversations like this, because we learn something that can be done to resolve a problem and no2 others in the future can learn from it also.

I hope you post some pix of the process if you have time or care to do so, pix sure help out with visual types.

No improvements today - the front end I found has a 1 .125" tube & the Micargi is fitted for a 1" size, so I guess I'm going hunting. Didn't get the computer on today, either, although I did rack up some miles. Very pleasant day for riding here in Michigan, My Michigan.

I've had a bad itch to go riding lately, here in Maine we're just getting to warm enough temps so today I blew the dust off my bike and fired it up for the first time since fall. Over the winter put on a new saddle with the help of one of sportscarpat's awesome layback posts. I also had to rig up a reinforced muffler support, a little piece of steel bar stock and a torch to bend it good and sharp took care of that. The stock support from Phantom was just not rugged enough and fatigued and snapped (coat hangars got me home that day LOL). Lastly, added some mirrors for safety as my last 5 miles to work is along a very busy road. Looking forward to warm sunny days here.

love the yellow-wall tires!



I mooched some gas and oil from the landlord and ran the bike with the new Huasheng motor today.
the choke only goes half on due to top-tube interference but she started in six pulls the first time, four the next, and two the time after that.

my temporary foot pegs (a few feet of bar and half a roll of electrical tape) seem to be working okay, I even rode the bike for a bit with the seat lowered (something I cannot do and pedal)

still getting used to the centrifugal clutch, it sounds to me like the engine is running pretty fast when it engages, but that said it seems to have lots of rpm range to go from there. maybe the idle it just really low or something.

the adventure continues...
