C-clamp Valve Stem Replacement

The Calgary Chapter of GWRRA had a few members come up to Westlock for "Tractor Days"
"Uh-oh" (Motorcycle talk: )the rubber valve stem was half ripped off, so the tire goes flat.

With no tire or motorcycle shops open on a Saturday night, we had to improvise. Emile Lambert provided giant c-clamps to squeeze the tire to expose the valve stem, which was then replaced with a metal one.

Making sure not to drop the bolt, the new stem was installed. The clamps were released, and the tire pumped up and voila! Ready to hit the road!
GWRRA = Fun, Friends & Knowledge.
Works for me!
