Todays Project, Rear Tire
« on: April 22, 2012, 05:02:01 PM »
This was my fun for today's rainy day.

All jacked up.

Tire removed with wheel protectors in place, didn't get one mark on the wheel.

New tire spooned on.

Who needs a balancer???

Original tire.

I did a/rear tire on my buddy's VTX1800 today.  It was only worn in the middle.   And did I mention tube tires are so 1970.

Yeah tubes suck unless it's for a dirt bike (or hardcore adventure bike), then it makes sense. Mine was pretty worn in the middle but the trip I took to Nova Scotia last year killed the center.

I was surprised that his bike had spokes wheels but it at least was easy to break the bead.  And shaft drive made it even better.
