    The FXWG and FLH frames are identical as far as dimensions go. May be a little difference with a tab or hole here and there. The rake spec for those two bikes is different, but that's because of...

    I'm with 70f and JBnNC. The whole mini drum wheel, especially with a 21" rim is a desirable part. You can probably sell it as a whole for more than you'll pay for a brand new 21" rim. And doing...

    Know what happens when you ride a bike with a lot of trail? You get used to it, that's what. Especially if you ride it every day everywhere you go like we did in the past. Before there were a bunch...

    Here's a pair of aftermarket fork spring stops for the BSA external spring fork. These would also work with the MCM FC6 and FC7 extended fork covers.

    Unfortunately, (for you) the last year Ohio stamped the year onto the plates themselves was 1974. For '75 you used a '74 plate with a '75 Sticker. The plates after that were dateless, and a...

    You can also space the rotors out just a little. In fact, Harley used thin (like .040") spacers on some of the models (41814-76.) Here's my '78 FXS with a stock narrow glide hub and a 21. It was a...

    I have one. Looking for a review? It's helpful with little things like wheel spacers, and making bungs. Other than that, it's too small and not precise enough.

    Don't overlook what Jim said about swingarm bearings. Looseness at the swingarm can feel like a front end wobble while riding. Using a lift or a jack under the frame get the rear wheel off the...

    Yup, you can run that one upside down. It will effectively shorten your front fork by about an inch. You'll have slide the fork tubes up through the lower tree by about that much, but everything else...

    Old engines will run just fine on unleaded. Use premium if you've got any serious compression. The valves and seats will wear a little, but not a lot, faster. When the engine gets old enough, and...

    Bore a hole through your solid slug and you can still use the Triumph friction steering damper. You'd need to extend the rod by the same amount as the stem, but again, not hard.
