Patches – Where to buy

Patches – Where to buy

Hey lads,


I’ve a comfortable leather jocks that I like to wear on short spins. The problem is the back of the jocks has a god awful indian head on it.


Anyone know of somewhere (locally if poss) that has large patches that could cover this up. Any interesting patches I could look out for that wont get me bashed by local clubs?


:ninja:


The pic below is not my jacket but resembles it – need a big patch :thumbsup2:

Heading home from work yesterday, it started snowing fairly heavily and the last few miles were fairly hairy between grip and visibility issues.


But there must be 8cm out there this morning.


Feck that — snow day!


Stay safe everybody 🙂

Nuts, Bolts and Thread sizes

Nuts, Bolts and Thread sizes

Nuts, Bolts and Thread sizes confuse the feck out of me.


When you see a M8 bolt on the shelf in a shop, what does M8 mean. Is it that it take a 8mm spanner to tighten, it has a 8mm diameter shaft, or is does it mean you drill an 8mm hole before tapping a thread.


for instance


If I need to buy a new bolt and the nut for it takes a 13mm spanner what size is the bolt?


If I want to drill a hole to accept a M8 bolt what size hole do I drill before tapping the thread.

Water wetter

Water wetter

Can you use water wetter on racebikes? I know you can’t use coolant but water alone leaves the bike running a little hot.
