I would like to thank all the participants in this thread, and Skarrd for starting it.

Great fun to post, and perhaps even more to stay in the action when I'm not able to spend time with my chinagirl.

Yah, I'm not only rusty, but I'm a clutz!
This collection of metal comes from a GARDENING axydent!

Turned my foot under while transplanting some sprouts, got up and foot felt like mush and I crashed into a bunch potted plants. lol Broke some kinda little bone in there, xray says..

Borrowed what sticks that I could, then the insurance company sprung for this AWESOME wheeled chair with a seat AND a basket!
It's a Nova Get-Go Model 420three.

The seat and basket are important. price is $110 online and I advise this as an option when the inevitable two wheel incident occurs.

Best

Tnx KillerC,

I gotta pass! lol
I'm just gonna take it ez for a bit.

So I took my new Cadillac out in the yard to whack weeds today.
Really dumb, but I'll get evicted if I don't keep the weeds down.
Gotta do what yah gotta do.

HCS, I really wanna watch that vid, but my link wouldn't load !

This is NOT good.
Gardening is hazardous to your health!
The fooote is all swollen and throbbing... Yow!
I won't EVEN post a pic of it ! lol
Hurts!!!!!

and I remember Happy's crash vid... he got up, mounted his steed, and took off again!
Ah, to be young and tough again! :-)

Life is tough, can't get away from that...
I'm too big to hide and too fat to run... being a clutz doesn't help and age is another impediment!

Nothing worse than an aging hipster! lol
Which austin powers movie did that come from? lol

I'll tell yah, this new Cadillac walker with the seat is awesome, but the littler one, Gosh! I really torqued it a few times and it is TOUGH!

PT girl came over to see me again today... told me 4 to 6 weeks.
Nah, I can't DO that! I gotta get better faster so I can ride my motorized bicycle!
We're coming into the nicest WX a person could ask for!
Just perfect for motor bicycling.

Best to all

I got up and dragged the bike out of the road! Some nice editing, eh? After the necessary light repairs, I did get back on it and go wash up.

The video was a motorized wheelchair doing 60mph. Buy this man a beer!
http://youtu.be/EI8bWlJGyc8 Here's the youtube link.

Today I went to the mower shop and got a handful of premium see-thru fuel line, a grommet, a vent, and a drop-in filter. The shop clerk wasn't the happiest because I "didn't have a model number". LOL. I let him mutter and grumble and bring me a box full of parts, since he didn't want to look it up on his computer: Tanaka PF-3300. And this, from a Tanaka shop!

I miss Staggs! Too far away, though. Old Kerry Staggs probably knows more about mowers and trimmers than most shops ever knew. I'll have to ride this bike over there some day and let him marvel at it. Maybe he'll help me sell Dax Friction Drives.

If you are near Garland, Seagoville, Balch Springs, or Mesquite, this guy and his crew can fix ANYTHING if it can be fixed! They will have parts for anything from Sherman Tanks to 60mph wheelchairs with Kohler generator engines, and will humor you any day. If you want parts, you will get them today. If you want a motor, you will get it today. If you want anything else, you will wait. (months, depending on when you bring it in.) Be prepared though, if the Old Man, Gene, is still there, he may sexually harass you. Male or Female. Just punch him in the arm. hahahhhahaha This shop always cracks me up, and they might even have something for you in the mower boneyard, if you buy used stuff.

Please sticky this thread! This is my favorite. This is better than the Snork thread. I check this thread all the time because it makes me happy to hear about people working on their favorite bikes, and I like all the jokes and stories. The internet is so full of poop, but I know there's always good news in here.

I made my own fuel tank today. I'm about to see how it does! I've got to get some straps to hold it to the front rack, then plumb the hoses along the top tube to the motor. Then I can ride all day!

I finished overhauling my Morini BoXer clutch. Holly molly I learned something new! Works pretty darn good! Made custom clutch washer shims from a feeler gauge set. Got three .038mm washers and.051mm washers. Working really well!.
