Hahaha! We moved into this crib 3 years ago the garage was one of the top reasons I gave the nod, figured the PO was a likeminded man. I’ve been very fortunate In adulthood not have any parts left but back in the 80’s different story. I found the fancy plugs cheap on eBay they don’t look like knock offs? Ha! I went cheap with the shinkos so I’m even for now!

Couple hours to finish up today. Thank you Cycle Gear of Peoria for installation of stem and skin. Rode around block couple times feels lighter. Looking forward to get them going!

I installed the same valve stem. Mine is so close to the rim, I find difficulty getting the air chuck seated properly without touching/scraping the wheel. :mad:

Maybe I bought the wrong type?

Your bike is looking sharp, ready to roll.

The OP or DS stem look hard to access also ??, they appear to be "True 90 degrees", were most I have purchased are approx. 85 degrees when installed, even though they are labeled 90. :unsure:, my oem rear SW600 stem is very hard to access, I use one those plastic valve stem extensions, keep one on bike toolkit, JIC.

Quite right (and see the response from @zrx212, above, too).

As I have said many times in assorted threads here, for these kind of, sort of, almost, right-angle stems, I strongly recommend the high-quality, 80-something-degree, products from either Kurvey Girl or SoundRider, both of which I have used on various bikes. For links and additional discussion, see:


Amazon and eBay and suchlike have their uses, but this is not a case where folks should be trying to save a few dollars. My continued recommendation to others is to go with KG or SR for those valve stems.
