Re: Oscilloscope for Troubleshooting

I still have my old Hitachi analog dual trace scope... Haven't used it in some time but I do drag it out occasionally for audio issues... I used a scope all my life in my electronic jobs - usually Tektronics but my little Hitachi serves me well... Don't remember the bandwidth specs but I wanna guess...

Re: Trike conversion rear tire

I have an 84 Aspencade with a trike conversion, yes training wheels. Had it about three months. I am in need on a new rear drive tire. Does it have to be a motorcycle tire? As it is not leaning anymore would a car tire work? Doesn't have to be a trike to utilize a car tire... "Darkside" usage (runn...

Re: Probably dumbest question ever

First of all, there are no dumb questions!!! The only "dumb question" is the one not asked... If you don't know, ask, that's how we all learn...

Now that said, I don't know the answer to your question but I too have seemingly learned a new fact today so thank you for that...
