Bashing in the bearings

BIG hammer! I like BIG hammer!
And a socket! To knock the bearing up against its seat

Then the seal fitted

Other side.... grease the elusive spacer...

Fit into hub

Bash in next bearing

Drive it home

Pop the Speedo drive washer in (Which we forgot! TEF!!!) And press in the seal.
Then tackle the brake disk


Plenty of coppa slip on the flange to stop it corroding to the hub.

Then BASH it on! I love jobs with HAMMERS! Call me Thor!

Then Add bolts

More coppa slip so they donít corrode inside the hub either..... BUT....

When they come out the other side.....

You have to clean off ALL the coppa slip from the threads, so that the thread lock on the nuts will 'take'.

Then they can be torqued up.

And the hub cover fitted

And THEN

Wheel can be fitted to bike!
AND the front brake tackled!

Been sat around for ages that has, NOW we could fit the Goodridge hose, fill with fluid and bleed through..... But first I had to bolt the calliper onto the fork properly..... Back out with the coppa-slip and loctite!


At Tefs Insistence I include this pic... For all of you that insist that women on here itís TOGTFO! BOYS! The LOT of you!
So, with the wheels on, the next job was to add my Iris, Extreme H-D X-Ring chain & sprockets :-)
I think that this is tefs way of hinging on to me! 'Chaining me' to him! I met him because I was having trouble with my old Chinese Cruiser Thing and the chain coming off the whole time, and running out of adjustment, and he came over to look at it, and help me get a new one! Think he got more than he bargained for! Anyway!
This is the standard 'plain' chain on the Corporal.

And this is the Extreme HD X-Ring on the Pup...

Itís rather a lot wider, and those plates are a heck of a lot thicker as well!
Bit of luck this shouldn't need such frequent adjustment and OUGHT to last a heck of a long time!
Anyhow, other 'fettling'.

Ends of the handlebars were trimmed to length

Grips removed, so that they could be adjusted and set up, and the twist grip 'lubed' to run on the handlebar.

And then my MX hand guards could be fitted up!

When the winters here they will keep the muffs open and also protect the levers (Already scraped one down the side of the house.... oops!)
Then bike was wheeled outside, because we were CLOSE to being able to start it.... all I needed was some exhausts and carburettors.....

Needed to sort the 'problem' with the engine bars fouling the exhausts we discovered when the exhausts first arrived, first though. This was the solution!

Tef welded a bit of 2" tube (Cut from a Range Rover exhaust! He reckons itís as thick as scaffold pole, near enough!) Top the front engine mounting plate. He also added two exhaust U-Clamps, as handy security chain attachment points!

Drilled, to space the engine bars away from the exhaust, then Tef's rather 'agricultural' welding smoothed off with a bit of filler, before painting!

Then it could be refitted to the bike, and I could go over all the engine mounting bolts, making sure they were proper tight and loctited!

Before hanging the crash bars in place, and fitting up the exhausts

Tef told me this was the magic 'restrictor washer'.... Sorry Tef, read too many of your posts to be 'got' by that old joke! Bludy exhaust gasket, didn't want to stay in there though!

Got it in in the end though, & fitted up with the collets.
Then I could bolt the crash bars up at the bottom.
Meanwhile we have stretched the new seat cover over the foam.... when it eventually dried out! Bludy stuff!

More Skew, because itís not latched down, but the cover needs re stretching to get it lining up right! Didn't get pics because between two of us we didn't have enough hands to stretch AND pin, let alone work a camera too!
But we were JUST about ready to fit carburettors, and see if he ran!
I think that the 'will He run' episode deserves its own post... so for now....
A few more bits of plastic have had paint...
Last mention of the mudguard was me not managing to plastic weld up the hole I put in it
