in her current well-running state, i've finally gotten rid of the flimsy fenders, and the ammo crate/rear rack which added too much weight. added the new brown balloon tires, and finally secured that drum brake arm in place. wrapped the handlebars with black bar tape, and sprayed chrome parts (except rims) with a clear matte finish to dull the shine. also scrapped the craftsman battery rig i had for the lights, and ordered some 9.6v rechargeable RC car batteries. now need to find something perfect that i can fit inside the seat loop where i can wire the battery and switches for the headlight/taillight.
