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

Today I did nothing with the Atlas as yesterday when I removed the front forks I found out that a PO had abused the fork stem nuts and stripped the fork stem threads. The nuts are fine though. It really sucked as I all ready made up a jig roughly copied from Sheldon Brown's (RIP) help site to have some linear caliper lugs braised onto said forks. Salvaged the lugs from a garage sale mountain bike carcass and filed them to fit perfectly too.

Toady I got lucky though and picked up a brand new Point Beach for a song.
Now I am saving up for a EZM kit to stuff into it.
