Rather than using JB weld, why not use a low-temperature brazing rod, to "fill" in a round spot where you can mount the bearing? It would require you to create a model of the bearing out of something that won't burn while you put the fill in place. But it's very backyard-doable. HTS-2000 is something I have recent experience with, and I think it might be perfect for this job.

I was looking at that stuff the other day. Thinking about using it to repair a broken throttle post on a carb. The JB weld the previous owner reattached it with didn't work.

That rod looks like great stuff, except that it specifically says "for non-ferrous metals". It might still be workable, because you don't really care if it "adheres" to the base metal (steel) or not.

I'm trying!

I am trying to get back to the Minsk!! I spent several weeks pouring time and money into my old 4Runner, then drove it to Montana and did a bunch of really excellent off roading in the snow, and then... It broke down. 8pm new years eve, 5 below zero, middle of nowhere, no cell reception. Weee!

So I'll be dealing with that for a bit, but I am itching to get back to, uh... whatever the hell it is that I am doing with that thing.

Also, Matti at http://www.minskparts.com/ can help. I have ordered several times from him and delivery to US was no problem.

1. That picture is the coolest thing I have ever seen! where did you find that? Awesome.

2. Do you have a Minsk in the US, or did you order parts for another bike from him? I saw something with a backwards "N" in your signature, but I don't know what it is...

Thank you, kind sir. I think that picture shall be my new desktop.

Did a little bit of cleaning up in the garage today, hopefully later this week I can start cutting/smashing/ruining the head tube. I am really motivated to work on the Minsk for some reason. I just spent 20 minutes looking at Google image search results for "Minsk motorcycle".

A few days ago someone asked me if I was going to have heat issues because I painted the engine... Hadn't thought of that. Input?

Did whoever mention what kind of heat issues? Engine seizing? Paint peeling? An engineer could come up with a multitude of issues that could occur. The worst that might happen is the paint might peel and you'll be looking at soda blasting the thing again.

As for the bearing cups, I call them cups because in most cases the races are pressed into the cups except in less expensive entry level stuff which likely the case with yours. Find some of the whatever the epoxy was that was mentioned earlier that I can't recall at the moment and install the bearing with that stuff. Carefully clean the cup and the area of the frame to bare metal, apply a semi liberal amount (enough to fill any voids between the cup and the frame) of the epoxy to both the frame and the cup. Push the cup into the head tube and wipe up most of the excess and create a fillet both in and outside of the head tube. Install the fork stem (bare, no fork legs) including the bearings and very lightly snug it in place, this should locate and align the cup. Maybe test fit first just to make sure. You should be good to go at this point.
Since the bearing "race" is a cup and the cup is outside of the head tube of the frame most of the "load" will be carried by what is left of the end of the head tube and the cup contact point and not the epoxy. If in ten or fifteen years the repair need to be redone it is likely that other things will also need attention by then also.

There are many ways to deal with the problem at hand and best fix for you is one that you can afford and easily complete yourself. Oh yea, and enjoy doing.
