    Since last seen...

    Its been a while since I have updated the bike here, but I have added many things and one major piece to the bike. Added a trailer, pinstriping (real, by hand pinstriping) and accents, a fully working light set, and a few other pieces. And my roadies made the cut: mid 70's...

    Bonding Steel to Aluminum

    Bolt it? lol :21:. Epoxy really works well with plastics, because it bonds them together, but I have never tried with steel and aluminum. I know 3M is top quality stuff, so anything to try would be it.

    27 on a 26

    Tried something similar to this. I have an old AMF scorcher (26 in)and had to run a 27 rear rim for a short time, but the rear pads didnt reach no matter what :headbang:. If you have this problem, you could build a bracket for the brake caliper :39:.

    Generator Issues

    Yes, the power and ground were both making contact and the multi-meter never ever showed any change in current or resistance

    Generator Issues

    I have a mid-70s AMF scorcher light set and generator off the fully riding bike (full light set and aluminum rear rack)...which I got for free :rockout:. I know the rear light works and the rear light wiring is great (this bike sat outside for almost 12 years), but the generator isnt putting out...

    Yes copper plating, but couldnt you just do a few clear coats and keep it from tarnishing?
