    Looks great l love the chrome and blue together.
    I had a question about your hold down shoulder bolts do you have a part number for them or what I should ask for when ordering as I need some for my cycle fenders
    Thanks Rob

    I’ve put the fenders on the shelf for future consideration (probably never use them :D)

    The bolts are ST1300 Honda fairing bolts. 6mm which I cut down to a shorter length.

    All builds do.

    Bad decisions make good stories.

    Spent a little time assembling the Lincoln brakes.
    Getting closer to having it sitting on all 4 wheels again :cool:

  10. The primary spring is supposed to go on first...just sayin;)
    I bet it sure feels good each step taking you closer toward getting your roadster on the road. Probably hard to quit for the day; I always wanted to do just one thing, sure worked late some times on final assembly.

    :D Does it really make a big difference which spring is where?
    If so I can easily change them :)
    It certainly does feel good to be putting it together. :cool:

    Interesting. I had never heard that either. Could you please shed some light as to the reasoning behind that?

    note: I will never remember which spring goes on first, but if I knew the logic of the sequence I might remember.

  14. Blue, I was just pullin' your chain a little.:) Don't know if there is any good reason to change them. I would if they were mine; just because I would always know they were out of order.

    I don't know if I have ever heard the reason behind the spring order either. Around 50 years ago, the mechanic down at the station was schooling me on brake jobs and told me: on Bendix brakes the primary spring goes first according to the manual. I have also found the same information in the OEM car manuals from the '50's, again no mention of why. I have always installed them that way; but have found them mis-installed in many cases when I have done brake jobs or harvested brake assemblies.

    The brake spring thing comes from the brakes with automatic adjusters it provides clearance for the cable that goes from anchor around guide to the adjuster foot.

    Thanks Gary, I wanted to keep it clean and have a nice contrast to the blue.
    Check out the thread I just posted on suspension hardware (bolts) and give me your thoughts.

    I went ahead and changed the location of the primary brake springs. :D

    I’m inching along with a little bit of progress at a time.
    Sitting on the tires now :cool:

    This is when all your work starts paying off - the details you've incorporated on this build are amazing.
    Side question - where did you get the under tire stands you're using?

    Thanks, the stands are something I fabricated myself. 12" tall and cut out of 3/16" steel plate.

    Larry I am pretty unsophisticated on the strength of bolts. And my roadster build is also pretty unsophisticated. I think if you use good judgement and are not going to drag race it or go on the Mexican off road race with it you will be good with whatever you use. I just didn't know there was differences in stainless. Now that you do know and where to get them if you have any doubt buy the good ones. I love stainless and after taking my roadster to Bonn. twice I just used as much stainless as I could find rebuilding the back suspension. I do have stainless rear shackles and bolts from Speedway I think. You do need to lube the threads before you put them together. I used red lock tight when I put it back together after rebuilding the Banjo. Hope I won't be sorry when I have to take it apart again. If ever. Think I will leave it to the other guy.

    Yikes Gary red loctite is the non removable stuff.
    You might have to heat each bolt up with a torch to get it apart :eek:
    I’m going to be looking for high strength stainless bolts if I can find them.
    Hard to get locally here apparently there’s not much demand for them.

    Well, I guess that would explain why my internet search didn't turn up any stands like them! :rolleyes:
    Thanks for that info. And again, great build. Looking forward to seeing it come together.

    :rolleyes: Now that’s a big joke.
    You can't be serious.

    There’s no way those Chinese fabrications (dirt bike stands) are in any way comparable to what I built.

    My stands are solid and strong 3/16” steel and curved on the top for the tires and I also put skateboard grip surface on top of them

    Having had one of those tubular aluminum stands for my sons motocross bike we know they are flimsy and wobbly with a 250 cc dirt bike on them.

    Would I put a car on 4 of them?
    Not a chance.
