Portable air compress for Interstate

What kind of portable air compressor are people using for a 1984 Interstate that doesn't have an on board air compressor.

SAILOR, I would think any 12 volt would work nicely, with either a cig. lighter plug, or alligator clips. I have one that came with a kit that I got years ago, when I bought a set of Michelins for my truck. I'm going to throw it in the trunk this year.

I keep one of these in my 1100: Slime 40020 Top-Off Inflator

It's tiny, cheap, and it works. It's definitely not fast, and the "gauge" on the front is a total waste of time, but in a pinch, it gets the job done.

You can get this or a similar one at Walmart, Harbour freight, Xcess cargo, and Canadian tire when they get them in stock :---usually for under $10

Even if you have a Aspy,with a built in compressor, its a handy thing to carry... to save wear and tear on the on-board pump... which I want to always be available for the shocks.

Its slow, but reliable ( and cheap ) and takes almost no room in the saddle bags..
( I carry an emergency plug and patch kit which takes even less room ... and which... Touch wood .... I have never needed )

When I arrive at a campsite, I immediately connect this to my air mattress, and by the time the tent is up, this little baby has done its job ...
