Great man. I would mic therm to be sure, but I had to use a press to get the lower bearing on both of mine. They don't slide on per say.

Just interested how high is that nice moto desk out of wood you build?
Is it comfortable ( :-) ) to work on?
I just measured my bench and it's 26"  tall. It's a taller than I would suggest, and I will probably shorten it up in the near future

For those who read little and prefer to only look at the pictures I apologize in advance.  Had an interesting development today I thought worth sharing.  Way back when eBay first started Mrs Ridesolo & I made a tidy sum of extra cash selling things we got at auctions and sales.  eBay has changed a bunch since then and I've only recently resumed selling there again since I retired a few months ago.  A few things have been on the shelves in the basement for a long time now that we never got around to putting on before.  Mrs has been getting stuff out for me to put on and mentioned today she had found two, new Ohio motorcycle license plates.  I said, "What?"  She said, "Yeah, I know one of them is a '74."  I said, "WHAT???" 

In Ohio you can register a vintage vehicle w/ BMV using an authentic plate from the original year.  So, for instance, you can put a 1968 plate on your 1968 Chevelle SS, etc.  I had done my research and know they didn't make a 1975 MC plate in Ohio, they used the '74 w/ a sticker added.  I had been sorta keeping eyes open for one for years now...  sitting on a shelf in the basement has been a brand new, never on a vehicle, '74 Ohio MC plate w/ the proper '75 sticker all ready to go, in the original envelope.  How about that...

Thanx, bud.  It's a little thing, really, but the whole deal just made my day and will make a very memorable addition to the "clown bike" build.

Since I built mine Ive always run 32wt hydraulic elevator fluid in the forks...by coincidence I am an elevator mechanic.

Recently talked w Sonreir about it.  He suggested "REAL" 15wt fork oil.  So, last time I stopped at the Honda shop I picked up a bottle of Bel Ray 15wt.  It is a little pricey.  But, it has made a heck of a difference.  The springs actually do work now.

I appreciate the input.  I'm using EX500 forks on this and they are in really nice condition so I'm hoping for a "one and done" deal on the rebuild.  If "REAL" fork oil is the best way to go I just want to do it once, do it right, and not worry about it for a long time.
