My first project was the front tire. 30 year old tires are risky, so I got the Shinko trials tire that everyone seems to like.
In my younger days I was a bicycle mechanic, and I've changed a LOT of bike tires. Well, a lot more leverage is needed with motorcycle tires, and I pinched (and patched) my new tube 3 times before I finally got it right....
Yes, I'm using real tire spoons.
While I was at it, I replaced the wheel bearings and seals. The brake is in great shape (and doesn't squeal, now that the dust is blown out)!
