As luck would have it, your tooling arrived the same day the guides did Brent!  If I could just find the time to install, but for now I must pretend to be a plumber.. 

the problem with pretending to be a plumber is that the problem may pretend to be fixed...

- Speed wobble. I had that experience once many years ago pushing the limits and it focuses a person's attention quickly to pay attention to proper maintenance, and as Dirty Harry would say, " A man's gotta know......" lol

It sure does. Recently got it running since purchasing and took it for a drive, couldn't take my eyes off the road. Fortunately I found tie rod ends and kit for drag link. Fingers crossed on King pins..

In 1969 BSA was offering a new motorcycle to anyone who set a speed record at Bonneville with a rocket 3. The record was around 130MPH. First run I hit 116. Next run was the last for me as the transmission case cracked and no spare was available. But it was a fun week. I met Burt Munro in person and touched the worlds fastest Indian.

Don,Too bad that you had the mechanical problem and missed out on the new BSA Rocket 3, but anyhow you had the opportunity to participate and also to meet Burt Munro...good memories to have! 🙂

I was able to upload one photo. I have resized pictures to below 3mb. Oversize mb window pops up. Placed the undersizes pictures in seperate folder and re checking size. No go.
