And One More!

The tabs on the side are from a URAL fender stay!
I love recycling shit.
The round piece was from my scrap-pile
just happened to be the perfect i.d., so I cut down on the lathe and welded on the tabs.
Voila!


YES, I will lend the tool to fellow inmates
Robert

so why are you taking apart the drive shaft, do you have wear on the thrust adapter??

The ears on mine looked kind of bad (100,000 miles) so I replaced it. There was an unusual amount of metal collecting at the driveshaft boot which caused me to investigate further.

Well done, Robert. Looks a bit like the factory tool.

It doesn't matter, this just happens to be the driveshaft I was working on.
The shaft in a monolever is the same as an 81-84 twinshock LWB bike.

One of the benefits of living in your shop, a mobile dryer that doubles as a work bench when all the others are full.
The casters help alot.

The Mono was the prototype. Once they'd ironed out the bugs, realised how under powered it was and that it had the looks only a mother could love they did it properly and produced the Paralever
