Kinda surprised at how many parts rattled off, so I put some nail polish where needed. It worked.
Thanks everyone for all the answers, old posts, stickies, opinions, words of doom & wisdom. I've never been mechanically inclined, but I've learned a lot here & now I've got this kicka$$ bike. (Or at least the beginnings of one....I don't imagine I'll quit working on it anytime soon.)
Looks like rain for the next 2 days, followed by freezing temperatures. Dang. I should build some kinda snowmobile.
You think you got a kicka$$ bike NOW?
Give yourself a year. By then, you'll have all the problems worked out of it. Then you'll look @ your bike and amaze yourself what you have done.
How about a picture?
