It took some time, but finally we now have solar panels installed at our clubhouse. We use a lot of current 24/7 the whole year. We hope to lower the costs of our energy bill. That would be a huge relief and it can have a positive effect on our contribution we have to pay each year.
This discussion was still going on in the 1970s. Nowadays this is no longer the case. Anyway, at the time this could ruin many party. And as stated in the June 1972 edition of Easyriders magazine, both systems must in any case be properly adjusted.
Below is the article in question that discussed the correct adjustment of drum brakes. For those who still have access to an chopper/motorbike with drum brake[s] can learn something from this, if they didn’t already know this.
In the August 1978 issue of Easyriders Magazine number 62 there was this Sportster chopper build by Jammer. Jammer was one of the ‘main’ suppliers of chopperparts those days. Jammer’s Handbook was a sort of chopper parts bible back then. Their first issue appeared in 1973. I started buying them since number eight, 1980.
In 2019 I posted more about the history of Jammer cycle parts. The Sportster below is a very neat ‘machine’. But if you have that many parts to choose from and if you choose well of course, the result will be something like you see below.
