Default Re: Straight Bar for first build

Yeah, the SportsCarPat tank is on my list for that one.
I have also realized the wisdom in having at least 2 MBs. That way I have one to ride and one to work on.
So, I bought a Schwinn Riverside from Wally World today to motorize so I can spend more time on the straight bar to get it right.

Wow. I just inspected the axles on this new bike and it looked like one of the old ladies working in the factory just sneezed into the bearings and called it good for grease.
I have now disassembled everything to grease the head tube, crank and wheel bearings.
Next on the list is to make some decent support stays for the fenders. Those stamped ones are mushugina. I am thinking one piece inch steel rod hooped with the ends flattened. THAT should keep the fenders out of the wheels.
