Today I went from this.


To this.


To this.


Along with the handle bar. The paint looks awesome in sun because of the color changing pigments in the paint which makes it shift from blue to green to purple depending on the angle you look at it.

Well, the Caswell tank sealer is on its way. After it arrives, I have a tank to seal/line. Then I gotta prime it. Then I gotta paint it, and paint it, and paint it.

On a different note: I have to confess, I'll never get tired of the bug-eyed WTF stare I get from the locals as I ride by on my motorbike. (Had to run to CVS to pick up some immodium for the wife; it's as good an excuse to ride as any.) Watching 'em drop everything and just watch the bike go by is better than a roomful of comedians, in my book. Maybe it's just my quirky sense of humor, but the rubberneckers are almost as much fun as the bike itself.

Thumbs up Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Good job. The stock shutoff valves stink!

I like the inline switch. It is good because you can re-use it if you ever change tanks.

Cool Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I took my 4 stroke for a ride and got passed by a bald guy in orangecity. It looked like a homemade kit to me but he was cruisin. It was black and yellow. I would have caught but my chain is streched out and fell off. I would have smoked em if i had took my time to take outta link. Links fixed im gonna race em the next time.

That was fun. It took me a while to make up this gas tank system, but the next one I do will be faster. My wife is mad because I used up the cutting board. hahaha. I can get another one. "You better!" she said. :-)

The "jerry rigged" (pun intended) blitz can tank can go on the happytime bike when I get done with the Howard Sprocket Adapter.

Sold it -

Actually traded it for some masonry work on the front of my house. The mortar in the little brick veneers on the sides of the garage was rotten and the bricks have been falling out. Guy wanted $800 to replace with new bricks. Told him it was too much, so he offered to take the OP Cruiser with the happy time instead.

Sold!
