Default Re: The Creation Of "The Dragon Lady"

brisbane, I had "The Dragon Lady" up and running over the weekend. The rear brakes worked for the cost of a $5 brake cable. After filling the reserve tank before heading off to work, the rear engine hose sprung a leak. Fixed that and rode to work. Just as I reached work the rear engine ran outa gas. Upon leaving work at day's end, the siphon bulb in the fuel line sprung a leak. Then while leaving leaving work, it started raining continuously until I reached home 30 minutes later. The rear engine ran outa gas again a mile from home.

All that did not wipe the smile on my face as the friction driven bicycle slipped and slid all six miles home.

One thing I like about Hawaiian rain is that it's cool, never cold.
