    The 78 C models were wire wheels and single disc. Its correct.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    I have a set of mag rims and the 79 tank and tail cowl. My plan is to do her as a red Cooley clone.

    Chuck, if you decide to sell the wheels give me a holler when the time comes. I might be interested.

    Will do. Rims and hubs will shine up spectacularly. Buff them when you cut spokes for the new ones. Spokes now are pretty well rusted beyond saving.

    Three things, don't ride it with those tires, they may not be safe, be sure to change the brake fluid, it's already a little past due, & remember, The red & white Cooleys were illegal in the U.S., be sure to check with DVM, just to be sure it'll be OK now. I can only imagine what is going to be. Get to it, we'll be waiting

    You're crazy. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this brake fluid.

    I’m actually bragging about that single front disc.

    My “T” has single front disc too!

    Rims are spoken for. Anyone want the fairing before it goes to the dumpster? All items are free just pay the shipping. AS OF NOW these are the only things that im certain i wont keep. If i find anything else i will post it.
