Narrated by Ewan McGregor and featuring music from Razorlight and The Silver Seas, SALT BIKE tells the story of Dick Smith, who owns and runs the Barons Speed Shop in South London. He’s an authority on the restoration and ground up builds of vintage Triumph and custom motorcycles. His days are spent surrounded by priceless classic and custom bikes in need of repair and rebuilds. And while, to some, this may seem like a perfect job, Dick, like so many of us has a dream. A dream that he believes will always be just out of reach. To race one of his hand made vintage Triumphs at the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats, in the USA. Until that is, one of Dicks customers mentions a speed record set in the 1950’s, and asks whether it would be possible to build a bike from 1950’s parts to break the as yet unbroken record.

Bob demonstrates the proper technique for checking, servicing and replacing Harley brakes on the rear wheel caliper of your Harley Sportster. He shows how to loosen the caliper, remove the brake pads and install a new set. Once they are in place, he pumps the rear brakes to make sure the caliper is making solid contact with the wheel and checks the fluid reservoir. If the fluid level is low, you should either bleed the brakes or replace the fluid. More Maintenance Videos are listed here.Watch Now >>

In this quick demonstration of the Harley Sportster battery removal, you’ll learn how to remove your bike’s seat and side cover so you can check on the condition of your battery and its operating components. It is strongly recommended that you remove the negative cable of the battery first and replace it last when servicing your bike. If you remove the positive cable first, you risk causing a dangerous spark if the battery comes in contact with your bike’s frame. Bob has been dealing with these batteries for years and removes the neg from the battery. If this is your first time, we highly suggest removing neg from ground stud on the crankcase boss(see images)with wobble extension.Watch Now >>
