My buddy and I were chatting the other day about this...

    Koni 76F aluminum body Honda clevis shocks - CB400 spec?

    I have a set of aluminum body Koni 76F Honda clevis mount shocks for sale. The markings on the spring referenced off of a Koni chart that I have tells me they were spec for a Honda CB400-Four. The springs are fairly firm according to the chart so I figured they'd work well for a very sporty...

    Revised aggressive rake & trail on a Rickman frame?

    alright, I am building a Rickman cr900 out of a crashed and repaired former race bike. some people will say that the bikes are better for long tracks, as they are slower steering for a racer. At 28 degrees rake, I can see why. so I have been on a quest to design into this build a revised ride...

    Morris rear mag 18" from Rickman project

    Putting a feeler out there to see if anyone is interested in a sole Morris rear 18" mag wheel that was with a pile of various Rickman parts when I bought my CR900 frame. It's not the best example, as the drive side bearing retainer or cush drive assembly has been welded solid to the wheel...

The owner passed away before...

    Shinko/Pirelli/Avon vs dual compound bias ply - suggestions?
