Jimi's Place


I live in Jimi Hendrix's old hood .. right near by is a park named after him which is where I snapped this. I hope Jimi doesn't mind.

Swapped the tank out for my smaller 3.5 shovel tank today. The previous owner told me the rear invader would eventually need new bearings. I checked it.. thing is rocking a good centimeter or more the bearings are so bad. I better fix this before it locks up. Anyone ever replaced bearings in these wheels? Are they a press in type.. can you get them at a bearing shop?

the front brakes are excellent.

its gonna be changing pretty quick but I kinda like the 1978 feel of the bike for the moment. I haven't got the gaskets you ordered Jimmy.
