Steering head bearings

Replaced the notchy steering head bearings next. All the aluminum parts were degreased and then acid washed to return them to their original color. The new bearings were gummed up – stuck solid – an overnight soak in carburetor cleaner took care of that. Packed them with new grease and installed the triple clamps with new hardware.
