Put a china motor on that Nordic Track stuff and make it a really cool gym... Why spoil a perfectly good record after having a motor on a bike, for all of the exercise it gives ya...

I remember it now, My first wife saying, If you don't get rid of them, you can't have any of this. She made Great Chili,

Last night, I compaired my Cyclocomputer to my GPS. My Cyclo Computer always showed 1 mph over the GPS at any given speed. Now when I went to do a speed run,, I looked down at the computer, and it read ZERO... Darnit!!!!! So tonight I will have to do it again before the sun goes down.

Tried to work on my leaf springer fork last night but it just didn't pan out. Playing with 11F steel just doesn't cut it with my hands anymore... no heat in the barn. I've already had enough winter this year, normally I don't feel this way until February. So I ended up looking at my bike in pieces for a few minutes and going back in the house.

Replaced the steel MX bars with new red annodized bars and stem to save weight- also finally mounted the smaller chrome tank I've had around here over a year, to replace Pegasus tank.

Since Pegasus logo gone, I stenciled it on the motor now-

putting lighter derailleur on the back today and losing some cahin links from pedal side- I'm trying to get the bike lighter because I have to take it up stairs- I actually roll it, easier, and still may get an 8 foot pine plank.

27" inch alloy wheel almost ready for back- have 1 3/8 inch tire, already have 27x 1 1/4" on front- (not pictured) not sure when I'll get to that. Cruise should pedal and roll like a 10 speed.

I got the motor mounted on my OCC chopper today. I've kinda been dreading that but it turned out ok. If everything goes well this weekend I should be on my way to Oakland by about Tuesday.

Got any pics? I have a wooden mold about half done for a fiberglass layup I want to try out. I did order the bung and cap today though. Still thinking about the best way to mount the thing without drilling holes in the frame or welding on brackets.

(see I can post about tanks without mentioning 2 hours and $30... oops)
