Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

I managed to persuade a modern 26 x 1 3/8 tyre onto a 1960's Raleigh wheel with much tyre fighting and then when I went to test the wheel out on my Hercules tricycle the freewheel in the Sturmey Archer coaster brake hub stripped and I had to push my tricycle home.

Found another wheel with a good hub in the 'stores', but then ended up having to replace loose spokes before the tyre fighting could begin again (sigh)
