Pure R&D work trying to make oil changes easier on my GHX50 Honda motor. Machined a third 8mm X 1.25 to 1/8" pipe thread adapter. I made this one out of Aluminum stock. It leaked where it distorted when I screwed the coupler to it. Back to the drawing board for a fourth try. Rode uptown a couple of times for parts and groceries.

Moved one so I could get a cabinet door open in my garage. Bumped my head on the one hanging from the ceiling and banged my shin on the pedal of one when I was leaning over it to check the fuel in the one I moved earlier. So many bikes...so little garage space.

I spent a bit of time tallying up which parts I'm going to save off the wreck for the new build.

Just finished cutting up the exhaust/welding/installing.

Didn't turn out like I planned, mainly due to my poor welding skills, but seems to be alright. Sounds alright.

Need a wider crank now though. Not because the pedals hit it (made it so it wouldn't) but because otherwise I'm going to burn my leg on it real easy.

took it on it's first trip to work and back, co-workers were asking me where i got it and how much...

still a bit tricky getting the darn thing to idle while it's cold and choke ON, but eh, it doesn't take long before the choke needs to be turned off.
