    Good stuff Thx for heads up. That was a nice pair, let the group know how you progress? Love seeing these bike reborn with TLC and affection.

    All the best!

    See my little bike in my profile pic, 71 R50/5, well I tossed it down the road today and I messed up the lens and metal rim and was wondering if anyone happens to have what I need for sale?

    Yeah Bob I know about Barry but we just need parts really , headlight ring and glass . Dee aka coollittleone does most of her own spannering , she converted this R50 to a R60 a few years back . Parts are available new but we were hoping someone had something sitting around for a bit cheaper .

    I've seen him come up with the odd used part or two, but there's always eBay.

    Trying to recall the name of the inmate who recently bought a ton of parts to sell. He posted somewhere in Airheads.
    I think it was Arbalest.

    All Harmonizer's are 2 port. There was much pushing for a 4 port model and much angst because it didn't happen. Never happened. Any Harmonizer is a 2 port balancer.

    I think it was deafanddiabetic, or was it something like that. This modern thing about the names people use makes it very confusing.

    hardwaregrrl, how does a late 70's block differ from an early 80's block?

    Achtung, are you looking for chrome? I may have one that looks like that, but is not chrome. What is the diameter of the tube? I think the one I have may be Russian. The tube diameter would be the key.

    Didn't an inmate here a few years ago buy in bulk a bunch turn signal lens screws and was selling them off? I could use some.
