Yes they are and that's a heck of a deal as LTS used to cost around $2,000 when they first came out! That was the top of the line GT at the time....Mike King owned the downhill on one.

Unhappy Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

My day was Horrible. I got up and decided I would take the 16 mile round trip to town to get a clamp for my carb. I scrounge up my last two bucks and with carb in hand head out. I go all the way to ACE hardware and buy a hose clamp for $1.05 head home to find out the damn thing is stripped!! I mean REALLY?! So I call Ace to see if I can get a replacement (not about to walk back) and she asks me if I have my receipt? I of course can't find that now, must have blown out of the bag on the way home. So I ask for the manager and he said just bring it back and get a new one. Told him I'll be there in the morning. I think I'm gonna go crawl into bed and cry for awhile. Unhappy So needless to say I'm walking back again tomorrow. I'm taking my bike with me though, so I can motor home at least.

$1/spoke is robbery. You can get a decent wheel set with 36h 12g spokes for $80. http://custommotoredbicycles.com/sta...sembled_in_usa

I ordered two weeks ago from John Holmes Holmes Hobbies LLC / Holmes Bikes :: Bike / MoPed :: Sapim Stainless Custom Spokes for the same and it was 85.00 for 80 spokes. O -well...

Road to school today in a cloud burst. Finally got there and found out the person I had a meeting with was sick with the same cold that wiped me out two weeks ago. On the ride back I passed a fellow who was working on the side of the road (highway 26 out of Portland OR) There were at least three cars and trucks with flashers going.

he glared at me and yelled "what your doing is ILLEGAL!" I thought about it and since I was riding a legal vehicle in the state and I never saw a sign that forbid anything from going on that road I think he was just blowing smoke.

You know Dan, your right. I went and I got creative. I used some redneck engerneering and this is the solution I came up with. (cause I wasn't walking back into town.) Now I warn you all DON"T TRY THIS AT HOME! I'm a trained Redneck.

I went and got me a piece of old bicycle shifter cable and I ran that through the bolt hole in the casting, wrapped that around the jug of my motor pulling the carb onto the intake.through the spring mounting location on my Expansion chamber and back to the bolt hole the I twisted the cable into a fisherman's knot and held that in place by twisting some copper romex around that so it won't come loose. I then got the best tool in any tool kit, the DUCT tape! I also needed to make a low profile air cleaner so I made one from a Juicy Juice Bottle lid. Thought you'd like that. Well I took her out and rode into town (she ran great) and replaced the stripped clamp.
I f it doesn't rain too bad I'm goin' riding later too. Here are some pics. to laugh at...Enjoy. Is that funny enough?

Thanks

UMM Interesting repair Dag just let me know if you are still needing a CNSv2 carb body and I will arrange to ship you one when you can pay the shipping to get you back to stock instead of redneck engineering (LOL)...

I think this particular fix should be submitted to http://www.redgreen.com/ and used on their show since it uses such a copious amount of duct tape...

For those of you not familiar with Red Green you really should Google and watch some of the episodes that span like 15 seasons of man fun...
