a tip from an old favorite book, if the bars knurling is stripped or the clamp wallered out,
a piece of beer can as a shim is perfect, thin enough to fit,
soft enough to deform into the remaining knurling on the bars
thick enough to take up the slack if there seems to be no more adjustment on the clamp.

Some days you feel like TORQUE!
Some days you feel like HORSEPOWER!
Once you establish yourself as an eccentric,
you rarely have to explain your actions.
Something a guy at a HD parts counter told me 30 years ago,
"You know what I'd do with that bike if it was mine? RIDE IT! Nothin' else ."
