    Being a mechanical coward, I have put off many things but now the chain is slapping around and for some reason the steering also feels stiff - so it is time for a slow, hard look at the nuts and bolts n things on the Kinlon 200. And for some crazy reason instead of just tightening up 'hard plus a jerk' in my usual manner, I have an el cheapo torque wrench coming from Santa. I guess most bikes will (hopefully) be standard within a few percent (?) so any settings you wrench wielding guys use for such things as rear axle nuts and sprocket bolts would be most welcome.

    Thanks HB, as always you come through! I don't think the frame is modified Honda though. Had some rack specialists look at it and they don't recognise it as being similar to anything else. Do you know what it is?
