Kudos to you young sir ............................. life was a lot easier for me as an 18 year old - plenty of cheap parts [ Triumph, BSA, Enfield, etc.,etc. ] and I missed military conscription [ which had just ended ] - by the way keep your head down.I've sent parts to various peeps in Israel in the past few years - if there's anything I can look out for you just let me know. I'll be happy to search for parts, consolidate here and send them to you.
I've got a bit of a problem with the motor hanger. They're all rusted and I want to soak them in vinegar but they still have the rubber bushings inside of them. I started prying them out but stopped to do a little research and found out that they're impossible to obtain. So I'm basically asking what should I do?Here's a couple of pics of what the hangers currently look:These are the parts I'm talking about:Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Cool! Any progress? Life eventually gets in the way...but the bike will always remain!
Nice work on the polishing. I'm currently polishing a few bits for my 350, takes a time and effort but result is worth it.
Either get it Helicoiled or buy a 'Recoil' kit. (may have to use eBay?)They are the same as Helicoils but less than 1/3 the price.I prefer 'Helicoil'/Recoil to the solid inserts, (solid are easier to fit but also cover a lot of bad work.) Just took a look on eBay, WOW, Helicoils have come way down in price. The sets I bought in the early 80's were almost $200 each http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1311.R1.TR12.TRC2.A0.H1.XThread+repair.TRS0&_nkw=thread+repair+kit&_sacat=0
