I see them on a Sundays sometimes in very large groups hog the road, hold up traffic, and go as far as holding a traffic light for the group which is illegal. Don’t dare say something to them cuz it will get ugly so I avoid them completely. I pull over and let them go by on their way.
Yea sounds like maybe the hub is internally damaged? I just got thru cleaning and lubing the model D in my 41Columbia and is running smooth as silk. I freaked when I had the hub apart and saw these ugly drag marks running along the center of the hub but turned out to be a thin layer of dried...
Done. Rides super smooth and stops quietly on a dime. Greased the bearings and used 30w automotive oil on the discs and rest of the parts. After assembly added 30w oil in the filler plug and spun the coaster hub. Went for a quick ride around the block to test things out and it’s better than new.
Speaking of old, picked up this beautiful 1941 Westfield last week from fellow CABE member Bob U. Thanks Bob for your excellent packing that prevented shipping damage specially when the FedEx guy accidentally dropped one of the boxes 😱 in front of me while unloading it from the truck!
Hope all you dads out there are having a great time on this Fathers Day.
Went this late morning for a short ride on my 80 Suburban but had to cut the ride short cuz the heat felt like in the triple digits.
Great time spent with the family.
Got my ND model D clean and ready for assembly and lubrication. I read to use grease on the bearings and 30w oil on the discs. Then once assembled to add the oil thru the filler cup which I’m guessing will lubricate the inside shell walls and the rest of the parts or do I add a very thin layer...
Thanks bloo for your reply and help. I was able to straighten the axle and looks 98% better, close enough and no need to mess it up.
Who knows how it happened to this 80 year old bike . I will check the dropouts and correct if necessary. Again thanks!
