    I put my '40 Chief on it's center stand whenever I finished a ride because it had drooling issues. I was always fearful that the kickstand would break, or slip out of it's lock when I wanted to use...

    I re-read this thread it occurred to me that my lawn mower is propelled by belt drive. Unfortunately, that damn thing has been dragging me behind it for years with no sign of slipping.

    After a day of looking at this engine, and calming down from being P.O'd, I am wondering if the chain is just a bit tight, and that's just the way a new chain will be. The chain tensioner does not...

    Thanks for the comment, and advice, Steve. I have genuine Honda master links which are simple links with a small hole drilled in the pins. Their intended use is to be 'splayed' with a special tool...

    I appreciate the information, Chuck. This chain adventure is getting expensive as the new chain was $40, and each master link is $10, so I'm now into this (clear conscience) simple maintenance deal...

    A friend of mine did some work on my 1951FL about 30 years ago. When he finished, he pumped my tires up to 30psi as a favor. The motorcycle was un-ride able at speeds over 15 mph. Eventually I got...

    I should have said, Excelsior numbers are still sketchy to ME. That doesn't mean other people don't understand them. I think there will always be some ambiguity about history, and original...

    Thank you for the response, Tom. I'm in new territory with Triumphs, and only wish I had learned more about them years earlier. My problem with old bikes is; I'm a sucker for a basket case but as I...

    CL 450 Timing Chain

    I am going through the motor for my '66 Honda 450. I second guessed myself about the timing chain, and succumbed to people saying the timing change should be replaced. I got a new Japanese made...

    I don't think the WW2 scrap drives took very many running motorcycles due to the superior fuel mileage of a motorcycle during wartime rationing. I also speculate that any 1915 and later 3 speed...

    Neracar was made in Syracuse N.Y. from 1920-1923; then the rights were sold to Simplex in England and made from 1924-1927. I have to think it's a custom job that started life as a British Neracar. If...
