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

Took my Whizzer out for a spin to tune it for a Relay for Life run on Saturday. 2 miles into the trip a car pulled out in front of me. When I slammed on the brakes I locked up the rear wheel and heard a loud clang and felt a jerk. It was a bad feeling. I limped back home and removed the rear wheel to find the coaster brake lever broken in two places. When I removed the lever to weld the break I realized it's made from pot metal!!! Tomorrow I'll be fabricating a real steel brake lever.
