Pulled the bearings out of the rear hub. The outside one on the right side has a seal on the sprocket side, no seal on the inside of it, and no seals on either side of the bearing next to it so the grease can flow through. A PO put them in with the seal facing the inside on the inside one. How the xxxx can people make enough money at a job in order to pay for a bike, even a used one, if they are that stupid?

New sprocket with big twin rivets per Dr Dick. A few are scraping on the backing plate but the wife is too tired to hold it so it will be finished tomorrow.

The difference between Ironhead and Big Twin sprocket rivets.

This is what I made up a few years ago. Simple and adjustable. The “anvil” portion has been replaced a few times, only after it has been refaced and shimmed a few times to maintain the height. Simple but effective for a one person re-rivet.

Turned the bike over to get the front wheel off and an acorn fell out of a seat tube.

The base has a slot milled in it for the dia adjustment (end of slot visible to the right of the alum with the shoulder machined on it. The round piece has a tapped hole completely through, allowing bolt to pass through slot and secure it to base.) The round alum is bolted through the slot, rigid, set at dimension which lands the rivet on the “anvil”. The drum is placed on the shoulder of that. “Cap” is then bolted on top to hold drum allowing for hands free to fasten rivets with hammer and modified punch.
All made from scrap. If I recall the flat base is half of a Longacre scale pad top that we did not use.
I could give you pictures of the underside if my wording isn’t clear.

Dude, you are lucky that thing didn't take root and grow right up through your ass.
