The Rod and Tappet
3 hours ago
Now and then someone posts on one of the local forums about where to get a dinged, bent wheel straightened. Then follows a number of suggestions of wheel shops that will fix the rim and make it look good.

It seems to me, and I may be wrong, and I usually am, wrong, that is, that straightening a cast aluminum wheel is a bad idea.

Am I wrong?

I realize there are also forged wheels. The latest local post has to do with a 1995 Kawasaki GPz 550, so I'm assuming that one would be cast.

PS -- good info on wheels here, didn't see repairs covered, though:

Hi Folks,

I am chasing a 97-7059 Outer Fork Member Left .

It is the odd one for a T140D. The old one is worn out. I have tried using the common part. It doesn't work. The front wheel ends up offset.

Any comments on sleeving these things are welcome.

Amal Premier Carbs Back In-Stock (Spring-2018)



[Linked Image]


I'm sure everyone in the market for Amal Premier carbs has probably been aware that there was a "delay" in obtaining them. I have (and others) have been waiting for slightly over a year to actually get a good flow of carbs in.

I wanted to break the news out to you and say that the new Amal Premier carbs are now here and ready for shipment. There is enough Amal Premier carbs to go around.

To purchase or view our full stock of Amal Premier and Amal carb parts feel free to see this link: Amal Premier & Carb Parts

If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us! Sales@classicbritishspares.com or (661) 951-2120

All Amal Premier carbs ship free in the USA

Mark Z and I took a few photos at the swap meet. The meet was small but there were a lot of interesting parts. I picked up some tools, alloy exhaust clamps (to be modified), and several Royal Enfield parts that were practically given to me or sold very inexpensively so they could be passed on to RE owners. The weather cooperated this year - it was a beautiful day. There were enough visitors at one point that the road was lined with parked cars all the way onto Brick Church Road.

Probably the nearby Brick Church Road refers to this no longer standing church. For our region, anything from the 1820's is ancient history. Too bad the building is gone.

This Ducati was ridden in and sounds as amazing as it looks. I guess they wanted to be sure the little 250 wouldn't peg the speedometer needle.

Price per pair-
With the proper 4BA screws/nuts,almost as good as NOS.I paid $125 for an NOS pair, 4 years ago,and still had to obtain a machine screw for one reflector.
