Hand Tire Pump
« on: July 06, 2008, 01:50:11 AM »
   has anyone purchased the old-style tire pump that mounts on the frame? I can't quite figure how it might mount to my Bullet.

Nope, but since I have a sidecar I did buy one of those $11.00 Wally-World tire pumps that's foot operated.  Fits in the "Honesty Box" real well.

However, as a suggestion, you might check out a bicycle shop for possible mounts and/or ideas.

   I've had a hell of a time getting a tire pump that works. About 4 years ago I bought a cheap tire pump from NAPA. I had to send three of these back because either they broke right away, or one never would pump air!!

The one in the catalog comes with mounts-I just can't figure out where the best place for them might be, and was hoping someone else might have gotten this pump. My spare inner tube ain't gonna do me much good without some way to inflate it.

They are mounted on the frame rail under the right side tool box, sometimes.. With bicycle style clamps. I use co2  cartridges from the bike shop, they fit in the toolbox nicely. I understand the one in cmw's catalogue is very well made, at $100 it better be.

I have a 12 volt pump that I got from harbor frieght that fits in my tool box with a bit of room to spare and I have a marine/boat 12 v outlet. I haven installed the outlet yet,preoccupied with more major repairs at the moment.Thinking of going instead to co2 dispenser and maybe pretreating the inner tubes with goop.
