Re: parts advice
Hi Tom. while reading opinions here, I decided to replace clutch, crank, and wrist pin bearings, with US parts, before running, so my original steampunk / Huffy build went on hold. In the mean time I got an old Murray frame from the dump and got fascinated with a BTR-ish, Briggs flathead, build. So, now I have two piles of stuff, and still no ride.
Just came in from stripping the dump Murray for blasting. Sand's damp, so no blasting tonight , but I did get to try the tree on the head. It looks like MAYBE the bicycle races will mate with the Suzuki races. Too much to ask, but who knows. I'd rather use rollers, but not for any practical reason. This thing isn't going too far, it's just a nostalgic noise maker. SO, time to warm up with a beer, or two, and look for bearing swap how to's. Cheers, H.
