stering stem, head pipe bearings

Postby mustang5422 » Sat Sep 10, 2011 8:25 pm



New to the site and excited. I purchased a 1982 Aspencade in boxes. Frame has been repainted, and the head pipe bearings were removed. I have the bearing they are good just need the races. I went to a bike shop to order some. They looked up bearings but had no mention of the races. Question that the bike shop couldn't anser was are the bearings and races sold as a set. Honda rider for many years I just never put one together from the groud up. Thanks!!

Yes bearings and races come as a set.. You will need a driver tool (Or a big socket) to put the new races in the frame!!
