Yep. Most of the original bearings are either missing or shot to bits, also 2 of the racers have gone walkies, and are no longer available.i don't think i ever had to do steering head bearings in one of them. they're individual balls originally aren't they? i hate that.
those tapered cup adapters look like they may be plenty long to turn some off so they sit deeper into the headstockToday started off quite well. Fitted the steering head bearings, and sorted one of the front forks.
Then it all went tits up. With the bearing conversion installed the steering stem is 10mm too short.... Bugger.
