Re: Rear Brake Problem

So, what is the appropriate "clocking" of the arm or angle of the cam? Nothing 'specific' angle-wise. You just want to make sure that when the brake pedal is fully depressed that the arm on the cam isn't too far forward. "Mechanically speaking" the optimum force is exerted when the brake rod is per...

Re: Steel Rims

Does anyone know what the dimensions of a 'stock' steel rim are for a 4.00 x 19" tire?

Aside from the obvious 19" ... what is the 'width' of the rim. I don't have one without a tire on it, and don't really want to break it down to measure it (yeah, I'm lazy, no contest).

Thx.

Re: Rear Brake Problem

I second Rob's evaluation. Personally... I have no use for a parking brake (and my rig doesn't have one anyway) ... it just adds more complication to adjusting the brakes. What's the brake shoe-to-drum clearance Rob, 0.015-0.025" ((or something like that) not critical)). This is the 'gap' between th...

Personally, I don't believe you have a Dnepr K750. You'd have to post photos of it to convince me... :wink: :P

Re: What brand sidecar is this

A light Cozy on a 'light' Harley? What's not to like? Certainly more beans than a 750cc BMW R75/5 with a sidecar. There's a guy down in Santa Maria that has a chair lashed up to a 900cc Snortster and it hauls a$$.

A new Cozy goes for around $3,495...

Re: Steel Rims

Vintage Brake is the go-to for drum brake bikes. >> http://www.vintagebrake.com/

But Dave (the owner) once told me that you can pull a brake drum out-of-round simply by over tightening spokes.

Re: Steel Rims

Lou , I would recommend that you re-lace some round steel wheels , if you can find them.
That was the idea behind this thread...

Re: Center Stand? ... Doh

I always wondered WHY they didn't put a deploy tab on the canter stand ? Maybe because folks would think it is for raising the bike up onto the center stand, and not just to drop it to the ground; it's a classic BMW center stand deploy tab problem (resulting in it being broken off ). Need a classic...

I love locomotives, and DO find these attractive ...

edit - I also can't find squat about these wheels.
