    That's a great idea on selling this tire and just buying two new ones. I think this one will cleanup. I do like this tread pattern better than others, though. I wouldn't care a bit to weld it but I'd feel more comfortable if I had access to a lathe to turn them both close in tolerance so I...

    Wanted: AC Delco LM46B Spark Plugs

    Even used ones. I need about 8-10 but can't swing eBay prices for them. I don't see any discussions about them from a quick search. They are like a CJ14, if I recall. We had one in a Lawnboy I used when I was a kid. The porcelain would light up every time it hit. It was just a cool...

    I'm excited about it. My 12yr old is learning a lot just from the process. Things he'll carry with him when I'm long gone lol. I'm excited for my kids to ride it, also. I've got to find an engine, I'll be the hold up. Along with figuring out how to get these shocks apart and if they are...

    Here are some shots of the swing arm we PC'd tonight. Lesson learned. On the rim, we cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and then prebaked it to off-gas it. On the swing arm, we wiped it down with rubbing alcohol but didn't off-gas it. Old black paint that was not visible after sandblasting was...

    Ooops, I guess where I posted my introduction pretty close to the same time, I didn't think about putting original pics in here- that would make too much sense! https://www.oldminibikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/introduction-and-throw-back-pics.167792/#post-1225747

    Ok, we got an Eastwood powder coating system for Christmas, so we had to try it out. The front rim was the first victim. Here's some shots of the rim, before... Here's some shots after sandblasting, welding the old valve stem hole shut (rusted out badly, there's another flat spot on the...

    Skate board wheels for chain / belt tensioners.

    Thanks man! That looks factory.... I've got to come up with something similar for mine. The arc of the swing arm loosens the chain and sometimes it flys off....

    Skate board wheels for chain / belt tensioners.

    There what I'm calling, from the ATV/Dirtbike world, a swing arm shaft. With regards to a jackshaft, I have pictured in my head clutch to jackshaft/sprocket then on opposite side of the bike would be another sprocket on the jackshaft then to the rear sprocket on the wheel. Do I have this right...

    Skate board wheels for chain / belt tensioners.

    I need to fab up something like this for the ARCO. The pivot arc on the rear swing arm changes at you hit bumps causing it to lose tension and pop, off the chain goes.... I guess I should mock this up before I sand blast and powder coat!!
