Re: WNG for sale in Holland

Thanks for the info! I will get the washers, I planned to get a couple made at my job. Different thickness left and right side, new spindles from ACME Stainless maybe not 100% accurate on lengths?

Re: Murphy's law prevails

Solving one problem on a vintage motorcycle always reveals two new ones... the upside is that all this perpetual problem solving will keep our brains fresh and elastic into old age, and less prone to catch Alzheimers ;)
