Oops forgot about the pics. They'll have to wait. I was gonna shim the valves, then a long time friend showed up and wanted to ride. So I got the bike all back in one piece and went for a ride. nothing crazy. so now that I am gonna do the valves now, bike is in bits.
Decided to do a couple of things.
Homemade block off plates anyone?
Rough cut with sawzall, angle grinder to shape, flappy disc to near final shape and a little bit of sandpaper thrown in there.
