    Friend: Hey, you want this old piston?

    Me: No thanks, I have enough crap in my garage already.

    WannaBe, Could you be a little more specific? For example HD riser bushings are different before and after 1972. And, there's no way in your first post to know if you're working on a Harley or a...

    Once you get the old fork cups out, don't toss them. If you take one and chuck in in a lathe, and sand or file it down 'til it's a slip fit in the frame you can use it, some heavy washers, some...

    If you go to the 1.60 rim, your 3.00 - 21 Speedmaster will probably work. Looks better, too (to my way of thinking.)

    Another possibility if you need/want to use something different than the Wagner-Lockheed master cylinder is to get an in line residual pressure valve from a place like Summit Racing and plumb it into...

    I think confab is on the right track. Probably needs something you don't have, like the RFID key, similar to the key fobs you need with newer cars with key-less ignitions. Ask your friend's family...

    I have a tool post holder for my lathe that holds a dremmel. Often you can grind stuff that's too hard to cut, and if it's just the plating, once that's off you'd be fine.
