    Harbor Freight Wheel Balancing Stand. Product Review/modification.

    One of the in-laws gave me a Harbor Freight gift card for Christmas. I'd actually forgot about it. I was in the process of making a wheel balance/trueing stand when I remembered it. HF is only a 5 min drive from here, so off I go. It's advertised only as a balancing stand. 50 bucks out the...

In 2000, Smith’s aspiration was realized when...

    '74 RD350. Yeah... I know....

    Go ahead with your jokes... projects and holes in the head an' all that... I can take it. :cautious: Anyway... it was advertised as a '74 RD 350, complete with extra motor, sitting in baskets on two pallets.

So, I've made up 10 pigtails to offer to the forum. The Suzuki GN250 ignition box (Gonzo) is a direct swap for...
