Ahh, JC Whitney. A friend of mine had bought a kit for his motorcycle from JC Whitney. In the process of putting it all together we had a terrible time with one bolt. I examined the bolt and found that the threads were the correct pitch but they were concentric rather than being a spiral! We ran down to NAPA to get real bolt and the guy at the counter couldn't stop laughing at the bolt. I asked how much for the real bolt and the counter man held the JC Whitney bolt close to his chest.
