Installed a new kill switch, still have to test it out though. It's an old Norton/Triumph style kill switch.

I removed the broken windscreen and will prolly order another one. However, I'll need to fab more effective braces to support the mounts.

The windscreen makes a LOT of difference while coasting. I kill my engine about 75 yards before reaching the bike rack. Without the screen, I have to pedal about 15 yards to get there. That tells me that the windshield is effective.

My rear wheel needs another 14g spoke replaced. They always break @ the tip, at the hub. It's time to buy a replacement HD double-walled aluminum wheel from the LBS. Then I can rebuild the existing one w/12g spokes and new bearings.

Buying super tubes for the tanaka bike, and hunting for that dead carb for the motorized bicycle club member.

Took bike out for a ride down to the bike shop to get rear lights -then came home and drilled holes-mounted lights-bike ran super supreme-just loves that Shell Advance straight 2cycle oil-TC-W3 guaranteed for* Bombardier,Artic Cat,Yamaha and Polaris.
My Bridge Stone Titan just loves that oil-this is the fourth winter athat I've run this motor through.

The name "Titan" is on a bunch of engines, two and four stroke, mostly from Thatsdax .

I put some big cheap Wellgo BMX pedals on my hybrid bike, instead of the little bitty factory cheapos. These work nicely until they get wet. I like the metal spikey ones better, but this will do. http://joyride-cycles.com/Images/Pro.../WE9735-lg.jpg
$6.50 http://joyride-cycles.com/shop-by-br...als-9-16-black

I rode my friction drive bike 15mi today, 5 pedaling only (2 of that with the spindle down for some work-out time!) I brought it with me while I went to town to shop for some baby supplies, got in a little ride while I was parked there.

I found the old NT carb for HR Pufinstuff.

I found my extra Greenfield kickstand and some stuff for my Grubee bike, getting it ready for the 45mi Dallas Ride and Pizza.
