Default Re: What I found while cleaning out the garage.

Thanks for the suggestions guys

I was actually considering doing a rack mount conversion, but with that NOS 250watt Chinese electric scooter motor I'd re-discovered during the cleanup. The electric scooter wheels are far too small, but I was going to swap the rear scooter hub over into the bicycle wheel so I can use the scooter sprocket and brake. I still need to work out the details, but stripping the wee bike down so I can repaint the frame and generally tidy it up should keep me quiet for a while.

I'm still amazed just how much space all that junk was taking up and I've still got about half the garage to excavate yet. When I moved here over eight years ago I set my workshop up with a good big workbench, tube bender, a 10 tonne hydraulic press, bench grinder, drill press and a lathe and most of that has been completely inaccessible for far too long.
