    Default hallcraft satellite restore

    I scored a set of hallcraft satellite sportster mags in pretty rough shape and am trying to get them useable. 19 front minidrum and 16 rear drum. Pulled the bearings (long gone). Both had peeling black spraypaint that I chemstripped off. Found a ton of rust/pitting. Mediablasted that about halfway before running out of time. Now Iím looking for replacement guts and linkage for the minidrum, bearings and someone who can plate em again (or if not, suggestions of alternate methods like parkerizing). In northern california, so not alot of chrome options. Any suggestions?
    Iím going to swap the rear drum off another wheel. Aside from the finish the only thing Iím worried about on the rear is how rough the interior surface is. Maybe a flat hazzard?
    I am still trying to come up with linkage to connect the front to my springer.

    Brake anchor needs to be mounted to the rear leg of the springer only; what springer you got?

    what size axle you running? What is the bore size of the bearing bore in the hub?

    I got two front Satellites, both with single disc and one 16" rear. My Hallcraft 5-spoke has a mini drum, but can't see bearing number right now.

    Edit; just checked; they both have 6203 bearings:
    Dimensions: 17mm x 40mm x 12mm/Metric

    I think the mini drum internals were swiped from dirt bike rims so they didn't have to make those parts.Now to read all night until I find that old tech tip and what Bikes.

    Woah, thats all super useful info. Thanks! Sweet bike btw. I’ve got a bsa project thats very similar.
    The front drum will need to mount to a ness low bend springer. No tabs, but I have arm/stay thats ready to bolt to the leg side. The plate can probably be reamed and reused. Hopefully it’ll just be a matter of getting those to work together. I’ll try to get some photos posted tonight. And an axle measurement (I remember it being small).
