Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Well, today I screwed up my courage, picked up my cane, and hobbled to the shed where I've been storing the wrecked bike. It has now been four months since the accident, and I find I've actually been waiting for this day. I began tearing down old Tempus and assessing what I'll need to transfer the engine onto my Higgins frame. So far, it looks like I'll need two engine mount spacers, and a whole new carburettor (the old one was cracked in the accident). And I think I'll be using a 36T pedal sprocket to make starting off the line a bit easier, and more room around the engine. I have begun now, and the end of this project will be a beautiful vintage-style motorbike.
