    I got lucky and was able to get it out with the help of a star bit! And the local shop had the part in stock. I don’t know if it’s going to hold fluid that well but it did take pressure.

    Well the lines went on pretty straight forward. Swing by my local shop picked up a new pivot bolt and back to bleed.

    The front came up on pressure super quick! Next will be tires and then she’s ready to hit the road!

    Well was able to ride the bike about 15mins! It runs great, the Corbin seat seems to suck. The rear brakes are a bit soft so a rebleed is in process. Love the way it feels. I am signing up for a sidecar class. If the class goes well I might use this as a tug for the chair!
