hid from the rain in my shed and stripped paint and clearcoat off parts, unlaced my vintage Sachs Komet Super coaster brake hub and relaced a shimano CB-D120 into my wheel because i couldn't modify the sprocket adapter for the Sachs, and mocked up some vintage lights.

supposed to rain here for the next week, so i see a lot of tinkering and drinkering in my future...

Should be "What did you do with motor bikes today"
Went thrift store shoppinhg and found a bike with some cruiser bars for less than I can get for the seat that was on it. Then I ran in to Duane (Thatsdax) and got a test ride with his new 2 stroke and friction drive (nice setup and fast). When I got home I ran all my running bikes to help the gas from going bad.

Well I avoided the rain, then i closed myself in the garage and made a stub fender for my budget build bike. Worked that cut off wheel like I was on some chopper (MB) build off... I am not a fender person but this may have turned me a bit toward some type of fenders on my future builds.

Also worked on Bud Light....

MotoredBikes.com: Motorized Bicycle Forum - thine82's Album: check out the bikes i have built .. A RIDING PACK..
the new exhaust.. and a clutch handle modification.. the clutch thing is great and for the few dollars i think everyone should carry it with them or just do it at home before yours get to fly apart like mine did... about to build a wetbox but might not need it if i would just finish sealing this exhaust with some hightemp silicone.. i will keep you all updated and take some video and post the sound differences..

Decided to buy a repop Schwinn type springer for my 63 Columbia build and save the leaf springer I'm working on for one of my Worksman frames I got this week. It will look more approprate on one of those. Got tired of messing around with the paint on the drive sprocket and just stripped it down and started over and finally got a decent coat of paint to stick well.
