No matter how poor of a job you do JB'ing the bearings can't be worse than it's previous state.

I used JB Weld on my Jawa for a simular repair and it's held up well. I work in a electric motor repair shop the rebuilds motors, generators, pumps and alternators from fractional hp up to 8000 hp and occationally use a product called Belzona to repair shafts and bearing bores on motors up to 250 hp. It's very much like JB Weld. I see no reason not to try it. I would use a silicon spray on the bearing so it could be removed later if need be.

Have to disagree here. I had to reattach a piece of carbide to the rotating assembly of one of our centrifuges here at work, and after 2 months at almost 3000 G's while vibrating fiercely, it held together just fine. It was still attached when the machine was swapped out for rebuilding.

If you are willing to spend a few more bucks try Alvin liquid metal.

Oops it seems they call it Lab-metal now. http://www.alvinproducts.com/Products/Products.asp?id=1

This stuff rocks, much stronger than JB weld.

Cool, so that means I have two Sport model Minsks, and one, uh, Not Sport.

Gotta love the Russians... Anyone who would apply the word "Sport" to a 10hp, 4 speed farm implement of a motorcycle has got a sense of humor.


Sport... that shit cracks me up...

Remember the Yugo GT?
I think they have the same ad agency.

Another of the attractions to these sentiments is minimalist element. When I was 20 I was stationed USAF in Athens, Greece for two years. 1980 to 1982. Olympic airways had regular shuttles out to the islands. For better or worse, depending on your politics, these shuttles were heavily subsidized by the socialist government and domestic flights ended up being obscenely cheap.... like twenty USD round trip to any island. If you had the time to burn the ferry boats were one third of that! I spent a lot of time on rented 50cc mopeds on the islands. No matter how sophisticated, powerful and fast, comfortable, and gps enabled, my rides have since become, I'll forever be chasing the memories or those adventures, and never quite equaling them.
