      Fund Raiser   10/02/2017

      ok sooooooooooooo here's the deal I am hoping to have a new hosting site by the end Nov middle of Dec That being said I have had only 2 peeps offering to help support the site So I think those who want to help should hold on to your cash till then. I do not want to take any money and then the site close (cause that would not be right) Many be can find some extra before then so no one has to pitch in. That's it for now Thanks WhiteWolf

  1. I dont know , might be a lil closer to home , ehh https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_and_motorcycle_geometry Indian power plus and pretty much veteran mc have 20 degree , captain america is supposedly 45 degree . alot of salt bikes are at 45 , I dont know about drag bikes they pretty much try to get the centre of gravity low as possible , bloody large dia tyre on the back so high axle , small wheel up front so low axle leaving the crank well below the line between axles
  2. 47 degrees doesnt sound right , if it is 47 then what kind of frame is it ? someones butchered experiment ? 20 to 45 is supposed to be the legal limit
  3. I usually use molases to remove rust from old parts , its slow so theres no panic button . I once missed a small piece and it got eaten beyond any use , only a spacer collar but its history I heard a guy say he just drops stuff in water , the idea has stuck in my mind and decided to try it on my 25-26 scout frame I used sand paper to cut the "surface" and then left it in the rain for winter every now and then I gave it a rub down with steel wool and a splash of water to help keep the rust on going. I live by the sea as pretty much every one does in NZ ;0) .... I was considering carrying it into the sea for a swim in hind sight , that probably wouldve helped speed things up anyway come dec 2015 the frame is pretty much looking very good , it lives in doors now the pics show the light reflection , not bad , blasting doesnt leave a finish like this my only concern was the cast parts , the tubing is stuffed so I paid little attention . the frames rust equally from the inside out so the inside is as stuffed as what shows on the outside , maybe carbon content of tubing ?? now Im thinking of other stuff I can derust in very little hurry I also did a shoe anvil as a treat on the side oohh yay!
