Re: Wheel balancing

For a more "period correct" look I used an old dirt track racer trick using heavy solder. WHEEL WEIGHTS.jpg I had the mounted wheels balanced and the rim marked with the weight and position required. Measured out the appropriate weight solder and wrapped the spokes, splitting the solder proportional...

Seat pull

This probably a no brainer but it beats using a screwdriver to unstick and pull forward the back rest.

Quick and dirty...stitched up from leftovers that came with the upholstery set, screwed to the top of the seat back.

Re: Fuel gauge heads up.

Thanks! Color is a 2020 Volvo White Pearl...beat out BRG by a hair for its higher visibility in my northern California vehicle battlegrounds. To help stand out even more i rigged an LED mast from Tribal Whips. An optional module turns the whip all red when braking.

Modifying a KENDON Fold-up Trailer to accept a T4 trike

Re: Front Wheel balancing.

I was able to fit a car tire on the stock Guzzi Norge rear rim, but since my local auto shop didnt have a small enough mandril i had it mounted and dynamically balanced by a motorcycle shop who specializes in big touring bike’s and familiar with putting car tires on the rear of harkeys,hondas, etc. ...
