Hard Tail and Fender Mock Up

Posted 3rd March 2012 at 12:15 by 62 Ironhead



Bolted up my hard tail and positioned the fender. Sat the sparto tail light and rack on the fender to see how it would look.

I think it looks okay.

Spoked and Trued

Posted 31st December 2011 at 15:18 by 62 Ironhead




Spoked my rear wheel and trued it up in a bit of an agricultural way as I didn't have a proper truing stand.

Used my Hammer-In-Hand Bolt On Hardtail and rigged up some indicators. Got it within spec...1/32 runout radially and axially.
