First Major Fix

Second day we have to deal with Sheas neck bearings. The loose rollers have already self destructed and he was smart enough to bring the timken set. The main problem was the neck was to long and the bearings were for a 1" stem not 7/8 which we had. We ended up at Irish Rich's place outside Denver and let me just say he is a sweet dude he let us straight up take over his shop and thrash. I cut off about an inch off his neck and then welded in the Harley cups, made some shims out of old bars and we got rolling. Still a little janky but it made it the whole trip. Big thanks to Rich.
