3 years to get my CB900 on the road and just to take if off again within 2 weeks.... :mad:

Was showing some one round it on the weekend and noticed that the front tyre has perished badly in the tread and i am not prepared to take the chance on a blow out.

The tyres were on the wheels when i won them on ebay 2 years ago, but at the time they seemed ok but i think that a few miles has flexed the rubber and cracked it.

So JLO is back on the road now as it was cheeper to tax her than buy tyres just at the moment.

For your information, a tyre lever is, in fact, a machine.....

Well i would have thought that was a tool, but i could be wrong, surely a machine has moving parts. :confused:

Machines don't need to have moving parts to be classed as such. In fact a tool is a generalism. Tools are actually something you can fit in a machine.

There are allegedly 6 simple machines.

The lever. Crow bar, tyre lever and so on.

The inclined plane. Ramps

The wheel and axle. Wheels and, errrr, axles....

So far so good.

But then you got...

The wedge. So, an inclined plane then???

The pulley. A wheel and axle, with a groove round it???

The screw. Or, a spiral inclined plane....

So I make it three.

But, a lever is definitely a machine.

I stand corrected. :D
