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

Got the $50 Cruiser running for the first time in a couple of months, and finally- brakes! And a new throttle control. Not the things normal people wait 6months to do Sorry for the picture quality.

1) Had to round over the edges of this cable grommet to fit into the hole on the throttle handle, then drilled a hole into the handle inside the hole to feed in the end of the cable. Works good!
2) Dual brake lever installed.
3) Front brakes pillaged from a Huffy parts bike. Had to grind the pad attachment slot lower to fit around the tires.
4) Had to file down the end of the throttle cable to fit into the carb lever.

It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
