Got the spring out & in last night, a friend of mine (Dad, well he's not really but I call him that) made a Hydraulic Press in about 15 mins using a bottle jack & some machine parts he had in his shed, I spose hoarding tools for 50 years can be a good thing :grin
Took literaly under 5 mins to change the spring I was impressed. :thumb
He's going to make a proper one up so that if anyone wants to take their spring out they can use it
Now to put the shock back in

You too will grow up to have a shed like that with an answer to every problem in it!    :thumbs

For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
