Murphy's Law would dictate that, at the far end of my evening ride - not nearby home but at the other end, the bulb in my headlight would burn out. My younger self would have been left cursing the darkness all the way home.
But HO! Murphy is defeated! The older, wiser me keeps a spare bulb in my trunk and carries a mini-flashlight on his keychain. Without the need to utter a single curse word, I merely open my trunk which contains tools & spares of all necessary kinds. In somewhere under five minutes I have light. "Be prepared" was my motto in the Scouts (whether I liked it or not) and I admit: it's finally sinking in how well that works for me.

Sold my brand new Kawasaki 66 CC motorized bicycle yesterday.. 2 M/B's bikes in the living room, was too much for wife to handle. So I sold hers.
Cant build a garage town wont let me, tool shed too small , cant even fit a lawn motor in it.

Pulled the head off my 1995 100th Anniversary Edition Schwinn 66 CC pulled off the head cleaned/ lubed it all up changed out the BP7HS NGK . Took clutch pucks out cleaned them put it all back together.. !!! Runs better

That sucks that you got zoned out of building a shed. See if you can have a pre-built one like the Home Depot types,that can be moved on a truck and aren't permanent. Or even an enclosed pickup trailer.

Maybe you can have a "greenhouse" with motor bikes and a few tomato plants.

today i....had to to tighten my sprcket mount..it wore and the chain keep coming off onto the hub it ate away a lot of my kings 27 tooth sprocket..pissed me off luckily it wasnt the alignment of the motor tho =) than i un bent my ape hangers. it sucks when your bike falls over with ape hangers. had to redo the chain...now im about to see how it runs shoudl be good as new... thinking about porting my exhaust....well i tried it and my chain broke...I guess it is the engine alignment. i re aligned it. (damn stingray mount) hopefully this fixes it. i wish the wind would quit blowing so i could test it out

The NOS Diamondback multi-speed cruiser frame arrived yesterday. It took 23 days via Parcel Post to reach me, but no probs with that.

The BIG problem is that the 6hp Robin/Subaru engine will NOT fit in there, even without the motor mount.

Soooo, I trial-fitted a Tanaka 47R engine in there, again without a motor mount. There's a LOT of room for this 2-stroker to fit in there w/a 4-stroke shift kit, so I'll try that.

Harbor Freight is selling Predator 212cc engines for $99. Shipping fees usually kills the deal (up to $100 more). However, UPS-Ground is charging $6.99 freight for two 212cc engines, so I bought a pair of them.

Looking for a frame big enuff to fit the Robin or the Predator.

What a great day. Really made up for last time. The weather being fantastic as it was, I got out all the bikes. Sophie wanted to race again. And in general the girls and I had a grand time puttering and pedaling around the mobile home park. My bike, Tempus, was running like a top.
And in order to make utmost use of a sunny day, I fired up the charcoal grill and laid on some bratwürst. And inside I was cooking saurkraut and seasoned potatoes. A marvelous Sunday all around.
