74 Roll-O-Flex
« on: December 29, 2020, 05:04:37 am »
I am just finally wrapping up restoring a 74 Roll-O-Flex "Wild-One"
So I went back and found some pictures, and I'll post them up in the next few days...

    Here is what I started with...kind of.
    I didn't find a pic of it when I got it, and I tore into it without taking pics

    It was pretty complete.
    This was back in 2007... I guess it takes me a while to get stuff done!

    Dash. It didn't have a seat... But it did have the trademark knee-pads  ::)

    Suspension.
    Weighs a ton. It has a bunch of spacers to separate the wheels, and on this one I think they were cut with a hack saw, and were all different lengths. It does have the front "3rd" spring mod (not all had it)

    After disassembly, I started with the tunnel. Just cleaned it up with water and a scotch-brite pad

    I mounted the tank, steering hoop, and tail light so I could get the seat made

    Jump ahead a couple years... ::)
    The suspension, jackshaft, engine, etc are all in.
    The jackshaft has an aluminum pillow-block housing with 2 bearings, and mounts on a cast-aluminum plate that the engine mounts on.
    The chain case on these Roll-O's is a cut-down version of their regular sleds, adapted to the jackshaft setup
    I came up with my own cover to seal the top

    Worked on the wiring and plumbing, put on the freshly painted belly pan and worked on the steering/alignment
