    Beautiful work. I want to make my tanks outta brass but keep getting different opinions on how I would weld it up.

    How to remove front wheel bearing outer races

    I got my disc from J&P out of the USA, searched everywhere looking for one on eBay as well.

    http://www.jpcycles.com/catalog/2015...?entrypage=220

    Sorry to hear about your misadventure with getting the bearings out of the hub. The bead of weld is an old trick which I found through some research on the Forum.

    Good luck on your project, cheers

    How to remove front wheel bearing outer races

    I have experienced this problem. Looks to be very similar wheel type hub,mine's 75 Sportster. After unsuccessful attempt to remove them myself. I took mine to a local garage id used in the past and the guy ruined the hub, he used a hammer and a chisel. Yeah he got the racers out, but not without causing racer wall damage, he assured me while he was doing this that it was going to be fine, polish that down no problem he said, then he smashed the oil seal cuff off on the break disk side. Ive not spoken to the guy since. I did manage a repair of sort's useing a allum putty, it works but wish id seen your posting before this happened, looks like the way to go... while on the subject of front wheels and such, any idea where I can get hold of a front wheel break disk for my 75 Sporty. Ive been looking for a while now and nothing in the UK...Nothing has come up on ebay for the USA either ???

    Camshaft bushings

    I see your using p/n 25265-63 for 1954 to 1981 xlh breather ring. Can you post a picture of the whole breather seal ring, spring, and slidy? It looks like you might've fit your ring inside the newer oil separator bushing to me I don't know.

    Hopefully long enough to warn off someone and then send me a paging message to come and beat the shit out of them.
