  1. Dropping the forks isn't necessary. Yes it makes the rebuild easier but that job can be done in place. The hardest part will be keeping the forks still while you compress the springs. Just tie the bars to one side and you'll be good. If you plan on replacing the cables too, then drop the forks. Having the headset off makes like easy at that point.
  2. Buy the correct tool. That clamp design is trash and will destroy the paint on your forks (even taped up). I bought one years ago from the san diego shop, used it once and saw it rip the paint off the fork leg. I think it's in my junk box now.
  3. I usually clean them up with a hand file so there's no chance of a stray piece of metal breaking loose. Since you're rebuilding the motor, get in there and make it look good.
  4. that's not really damage. The serveta cases have that super thin lip removed and I've taken out more than I can remember. The metal there is wafer thin and usually cracked. All the actual sealing comes from the rubber seal and the gasket that sits between the bearing and that seal. When I get a chance I'll post a photo of a Serveta block I'm working on and you'll see exactly what I mean.
  5. MBD 5 speed all the way. Haven't heard of a single one breaking.
  6. Good looking S1 As long as the surfaces are actually flat, the compression and squish are correct there is no need to run a gasket.
  7. Don’t take it personally. These things take time to catch on and grow. Even then it requires a huge amount of energy to keep them going and remain relevant. You’re competing with things like FB and a neich free forum just isn’t going to compete just look at this forum, it’s practically a ghost town and the LCUSA has had a forum for over 15 years. I’d try posting the info you want to see here and then once that’s established start to spin it off.
  8. Next year we’ll have a better setup so we can all run back to back. Your bike sounded great. thanks for setting this thing in motion.
  9. https://www.scootering.com/ congrats to Todd on making it on the cover of November Scootering! And Josh for the heads up, I have to buy a copy now.
  10. I stand corrected on that. Speaking with a 2nd ave scooters, Eric told me about an excellent badge tape that he uses on builds that don't have badges with pins built in. https://www.amazon.com/3M-08069-Press-Place-Adhesive/dp/B000PEWDJW I think this is what he was talking about.
  11. There are pins on the back of the badges normally, so you would need to have holes for them. If you are reusing your badges or the holes were covered up you can can use emblem tape but it won't work as well as you think it will. https://www.google.com/search?q=emblem+tape&rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS788US788&oq=emblem+tape&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.2554j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  12. Very cool, thanks for posting that.
  13. nope, these bikes are not that heavy.
  14. They work okay, better with a couple of tricks. Be sure to tie down the back end. I like to run a tie strap through the rear wheel between the hub and rim to hold it down. I added a piece of angle iron at the front end to spread out the front tiedows. They move around a lot on the hitch mount but so far I haven't had any problems.
  15. From what I’ve been able to piece together, pretty much any shop that could sell motorcycles/scooters did so. There was almost no brand loyalty unless you were buying from sears or MW (even then, there were lots of brands with the house brand attached to them) I have a Black plate style plate frame that came off a S1, it reads Riverside and scooterramma.
