    How I bent a fork

    Hey there stormbird. Sorry for the late reply but I've been on vacation and I usually keep away from the computer. The pulleys are about 10cm outter diam and some 5 cm on the inner side. Try the rollers out. Maybe cover them with something rubber so the kinking chance might be lower. Keep it up.

    How I bent a fork

As KOTA as already said somewhere, I guess the secret is to do it progressively, trueing it between attempts. If you try it dont forget to share the results. Have...

    Another job for me!

    Re: Another job for me! (or maybe not!) Hey there guys. This is how the bike turned out: Not my favourite kind of work, but my friend is happy with it. I just think that we must be more careful when considering "restoring" something. Maybe we should think more about preserving things as they...

    Another job for me!

    Hey there. Over here it's the other way around: we can get these bikes for a lot less and with a lot less effort than a cruiser. As to the link I sent, that's grain mill that started working in 1918. The engine is a producer-gas Hornsby Stockport bought in 1917. The other machnery you can see...
