I need to replace the face on my Speedo, and the odometers numbers are quite yellowed.
I would like not to ruin them, and advice on "unyellowing" the numbers. I know solvents will remove...
Anybody have some ideas on any Northern NJ or Warwick NY area motorcycle machine shops.
I want to get a head reworked, and I have had no luck with google or yellow pages finding a shop that does motorcycles. If you know of any, let me know. I can always ship out to places, but would prefer...
I was very curious about how a 30 inch wheel would look, so I googled it.
I was very surprised how large wheels are popular on custom motorcycles.
Someone whose name cannot be spoken mentioned a friend with 30 inch rims on his VTX 1800.

So I made the trip to flea bay and bought this:
I use manila folders for gaskets. they re...
I bought my 76 CB360t in 1978. I had sold my '69 CB350 in 1975, which seemed like a good idea at the time. After getting married, I started missing my ride, and decided the CB360 was similar enough and the right price to replace the 350.
To be perfectly frank, the CB350, at least in my fond...
Some have asked about the oil cooler on my CB360. It was bought around 1980 or so and was made by Lockhart, now Lockhart Philips, but they don't make it any more.
