    Robbie,
    Do you have the part number, or a description, for the spacers you mention? I don't see any spacers in my parts books.

    Use the pressure recommended by the tire manufacturer. Those low pressures listed in riders manuals are completely off base for modern tires.

    The parts you are looking for have been obsolete since the mid 70s. An alternative would be to use Progressive Suspension shocks.

    IIRC, we had one of those on the floor. Most customers found the paint scheme kinda ugly. We eventually sold the bike to Pete Heinz, former chief judge.

    28* frame

    I have a 28 degree frame I'd like to use a wide glide on. I'm aware this frame should have a springer, but I don't have any to spare. How goofy would this combination handle? yea or nea?

    If you press it out, wouldn't you make the fit looser? Perhaps better to try to seal it from the inside?

    There is no way to find this info. If the bike has a 3 speed and reverse trans, that might indicate a side car bike, but the trans could have changed any time after the bike left the factory.
