Seen people do a few of these as choppers/bobbers bought for a reasonable 380 sold a cb 250 twin and purchased so far all i need for it to be roadworthy is 4 indicators have 2 on hand which is good it needs a torque arm bolt breaks need going over new master cylinder which a friend has one for me tax and mot and to reconnect the old indicator set up on the bars the previos owner was trying to locate it by the left side of the bike im not the best at wiring so going to go back to standard on that.

its done 65k miles but these bikes with care do double that has slab alloy yokes slash cut exsaust system will add more photos with my progress along the way needs a respray going to keep it slightly ratty and repaint the engine brand new front tire fitted when i bought it :D

Little bit stuck on something the rear break lever sits on a splined circle bolt that petrudes to the side it has seized I think because the foot pedal is no longer moving up and down at all is there anyway of sorting this some info would be amazing ill upload some photos to show you what I mean


Cheers.

Usually a disconnect then liberal amounts of WD40....maybe a rubber hammer to get it moving back and forth gently...until you can move it freely..

If you can get the lever and pivot or mount separate from the master cylinder, just boil the whole lot in a big pan for 20 mins, will unseize anything! Obv don't want to boil the master cylinder, but if you can get it down to just metal parts it won't do any damage.


Perfect for alloy to steel joins that frequently seize.
