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

I cleaned out my storage shed and found a dusty purple motor bicycle. Lol. My wife hasn't ridden it in forever. She rides about 1x a year, then complains about the heat or the cold the rest of the year and goes back to watching the tunnelvision set.

I told her last year if she didn't ride it, I was going to paint it hunter green and ride the wheels off it, or rob the motor and put it on my 26" BMX bike.
(which is of course, hunter green and sandy clay brown)
I camouflaged it today with a roll of real-tree style duct-tape (buy 2 if you're doing an adult bike). I put a set of Nashbar Elevators or cycle-pro swiss armies on it (street hybrid tread). I tried it with some DH tires I shaved the knobs off of. It was a great ride, but they're heavy. The DFD tension straps were too short to lift the roller off the tire (cut for 1.75-1.95s, not 2.35 lol), so I went to lighter, smaller tires. Still looks good.

1" roller Dax Friction Drive and Tanaka 3300 with mods.
