Ho, Ho, Ho!
NEW toys loaded and dispatched to CA! Hope you like them, very precious machines!
Well they are on their way, a few last bits and bobs, and piccies too, starting with “No Excuses”. Front end BSA B50 forks 200-230 cc of Fork oil or ATF, these forks have poor oil seals (Not a BSA strong point!) Drain hole in under the bottom of the leg where the axel goes through. Tighten up spindle before the “8” bolts then spread the legs. You can see I replaced the the brake shoes with EBC lined ones (they work very well) .
All cleaned, re-greased and working
These work well.
You can see the drain plug above the spindle nut
No sparks but other than that ?
$500 Rockshocks, unweighted 10mm of free play
Primary case SAE 10 or ATF, gearbox ATF, Engine SAE 50, filler under the Ejection seat velcro panel
Superglitz still wants to ride so just might come out to Donner Ski Ranch which I always enjoyed and see if my 75th year is as good as my 16th!
Ready for 2021
The joy of polishing
The “SG” Superglitz motif, big bore WES pipe through the frame Ossa style
TY 350 front end, Gas Gas fender from Adrian and the IT Yam front wheel. Color coordinated grips and cables of course
Have fun and let me know about that PVL thing!!!!!
