This is a vintage club that has most of their events in New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. They encourage modern bikes to ride support. A group of big guys ride TY 80s on some really aggressive sections.

Re: Tank Dent removal - Other than cutting and welding

So I did some research recently and decide to try some gorilla Grip. Re glued the alpine stars and so far it looks like it is working well. I also put a leather patch on my sons boots directly over a big hole and it stayed on, So far i am impressed with this glue. This glue need clamping for a coup...
