I agree with that but i do not think they were cast out of a post from a chain link fence,they are solid steel

yes sir you have what appears to be the correct weight of the front. Notice the curved part at the hitch, and the fact that it dont stick out far on either side. Your wheel weight look right also, at least as far as ones that have come though my door.

Now the part that looks bad is your pully......Ouch thats going to be hard to repair!

for those that are interested i posted the pics of my midland wards with the close up of the inside of my weights.The only problem i was in the long live the two wheelers forum instead of this one.The good news is lauber 1 let us khow the mystery behind these weights.The two wheeler found its way to my house finally this morning,a little tlc and she started,but would not stay running long>i am going to give it a little more attention before i try again
