uPDATE: the brake side of the rear wheel had a a bearing which was cracked. upon removal we noticed that behind the cracked bearing was a outer casing of another bearing that had heat welded itself to the hub. so after some tedious dremel and chisel work we were able to remove the old carcass of that bearing.
obviously the previous owner wasnt able to get the old bearing out so he put a new thinner bearing over the case for the old bearing, and without using a seal or a tophat slid the axle through and called it a day.
what a pain in the ass! i bought the bike used from the stealership with the trade in of my metric cruiser. im buying new next go around.
