Just ordered a 12 pack of hockey pucks (can you believe they are hard to find in Florida) and have been talking to SB about the now famous V8 Gas tank. Still debating on whether to paint the Schwinn Deluxe or just touch it up. Pondering....

oh man that was cold.....don't know how you guys do it up yonder

well if yah are born and raised in the northern country you get used to it but dressing right is all it really takes i wear a heavy coat, face mask, neck cover , snow paints gloves, goggles and a bomber hat. i also never leave home without a survival pack that includes extra warm clothes , socks, water proof socks(incase my feet get wet) gloves,hat, sweater ,extra rain gear, fire starters basic survival tools and basic hand tools for bike repair including tubes and pumps so i got a pretty heavy ride with all that stuff.


update it has now warmed up to 24 degrees it feels like spring is on the way lol

I GOT REALLY CONFUSED. You can tell from my bike's picture i replaced the Huffy fork with a spring fork which is GREAT! But I have my Huffy front fender appropriately re-inforced and i aint got nutthing to attach the struts to.

There aint no tapped threads in the new fork to screw the fender struts inta?

Tightened mirror, now off to buy flat stock to make rear fender strap. Has a vibration at high revs.

To mount fenders on springers, I drilled holes and used Ubolts to secure to forks. Worked really well. Has to have new straps though. Easy 2 fab, just used flat stock.

Got mine from BikeBuyeres.com but the part that sticks thru the fram had it's threads end too high. hadda hybridize it with the same part from a friends kit that had longer threads. My fork now worked and so did his
