Rebuilding The Beast -- Balancing The Flywheels 1
On June 8, 2012, George Yarocki and Jeff Alperin are rebuilding The Beast
(a 1929 Indian 101 Scout). In September the revitalized Beast will run in
the Motorcycle Cannonball. The rods and flywheels are assembled and
tested. Now we must setup the stand and test the balance of the flywheels.
