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 and Mark demonstrate the process for lubricating your Harley’s steering head bearings and adjusting the fall-away. As always, Bob stresses the importance of adequately prepping all bolts, consulting your user manual to be sure everything is done correctly, covering any painted areas on the bike and, if possible, working with two sets of hands.Watch Now >>
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 >>
