B Squad Hotrod: 4 guys building cars and hot rods

Join the four amateurs: Steve (Woodchuck), Brad (Hollywood), Colt (Train) and Nick (Lefty) here at B Squad Hotrod. We're just a bunch of amateurs getting to the meat and bolts of restoring and repairing real cars for our enjoyment. And hopefully for your education and enjoyment. Because educating us...that's impossible.

Episode 0026 - Suspension and Motorcycles

Motorcycles, Feedback and Suspension.  All very Punny.  We start with an off topic section that was actually recorded in the middle of the episode.  But it is about motorcycles so how can we go wrong?  We have an e-mail from a Hot Rod Hero in New Zealand and then on to suspension.   It's a bumpy ride, but it should put a bouncy in your step.

 

Show Notes:


Steve from New Zealand Share’s his 58 belair and 56 Chevy wagon with us.
