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

First I gutted rear hub on the Huffy Karaoke Bike, has a Falcon-SHA Hub if I remember right, haven't touched the hub or greased it in at least 1000 miles, noticed just a little bit of slack in bearings so I figured it was time to service it and re-pack bearings with some good grease.

This bike will be getting new rubber also, noticed some weather cracking on sidewalls.

Below are pix of the coaster hub parts after a good cleaning before they got a good coating of water proof Green Grease and put back together, you'll notice how good everything looks, bearing race area in hub looks just as good as the internal parts, I know some cuss the Huffy wheels and that may be because they don't use these Falcon hubs in all of them, I don't know, but I do know that mine here has had about as much abuse as you could put one through since 2010 when I motorized this bike and everything still looks about as good as new, very little wear even showing on the brake shoes, thankful i got a good one, strong steel rim and 12ga spokes for the wheel.
