OH, yeah, about my bike. I ordered two 22.2 mm neck stems to use as handlebar mounts. Deep in the bowels of old posts I saw where another guy had done this. It looked cool. The single stem used on the LTD just looks terrible to me, not chopperish enough. I bought 2 Schwinn bars from BBBP and will be cutting off a left and a right hand end. Kin of hard to explain and I just don't know exactly where I saw it to link to it.

Heading to Harbor Freight tomorrow to get a BiMetallic bandsaw blade. It's been a holdup on my build so after I get the blade I can get back on it

Rode around on my bike today. MY micro camera that i had clipped to my back pack shoulder strap fell off cuz it snaps into its little holster, and one of the corners broke while i was ridin'. I had just bought a micro sdhc card for it. I found it on the side of the road and it was still recording. lol So i used my phone from then on. when i watched the video to edit it, my phone never did record even though i made sure i had hit the record button. It recorded for like random minute or so. My phones camcorder does not like to record while in motion i rekon, lol Also, that minute video, was in fast forward mode. lol I thought that setting would help it keep a steady frame rate but, it just records the video in fast forward mode. lol

I will keep that in mind in case of failure. thanks

You heard what Coach Pete did when they went to present the trophy, didn't you? He sent one of his assistants No way was he going to pick it up :P

I just don't know why we get treated the way we do, we earned a game against a better team than a 6-6 team but the major schools fear Boise State. Oklahoma hasn't been the same after we beat them

The BCS is just BS and needs to be sued

Actually this week I rechained (#41). Added a chain guard. Moved the tensioner (to the oval part of the chain stay so it won't move). Zip tied the spokes. Re-jetted the Carb. Added a SBP dual brake lever(really great move) and started to clean up the mess I made in the garage...

got the MM gen 2 head in on friday, so i slapped it on yesterday :3

certainly made a bit of an improvement, but i need to mill the head or something to get the right piston clearance on it.

The weather warmed up yesterday enough for my speedo to work. I hit 27mph when I lost compression. Pulled over, looked around....my spark plug had popped all the way out. It was just hanging by the boot. That explains why I lose power whenever I hit my top end. I've been tightening the plug before every ride, & had no idea a little backing out would cause that kind of pressure loss.

SO I put some thread sealant on it today & took it out for a test. Sure enough, that fixed it. I can run it WOT all day with no power loss now, as long as the wheel doesn't kick sideways & run into the bike frame.
Which it did. Peeled the paint right off.

Looks like I'm gonna end up buying a half-link chain for the pedal side. Probably just get a half-link for the drive side just in case. These things are a pain to even out.

I spent the morning driving all over Dan Diego looking for bike stores that might have something cool that I could put on mine.

looking good isldtime!

Cool Skarrd, should rip once its dialed in.

got the winter beater dialed in, slapped on some cheapy fenders, screwed(studded) tire's ready to go if it starts icing, (and when the river freezes). I doubt I'll need ski's for the trailer Should be a fun winter
