Hey guys, here we go again!
I have my '67 Bonneville basket case project to the "rolling chassis" status. Tonight I attempted to attach the side stand, but ran in to an issue. The frame lug, welded to the frame is thicker than the opening on the side stand by about 1/16".
I can only assume that the side stand that came in one of the crates, is the one from this bike, but need some advice.
On the later '68 - '70, the side stands were round all the way to the bottom. On the side stand I tried to install, the stand has a "foot" where the side stand meets the pavement.
Looking at my '67 parts manual
, this seems to be correct. However, I have never ran in to a situation where the side stand didn't slip over the frame lug with ease.
Any suggestions, other than grinding away some thickness on the frame lug?
