The conversation moved on but remembered there was some amazingly huge bike tires and wheels posted some where. 3 to 3.7

My new tank has been leak tested, primed, sanded, (and primed and sanded some more) and now I have the first of a few coats of bright red on it. I always get a bit of a rush when I make something I've never made before.

I found out why my motor won't idle and why it was lean. The screw came out off the crank gear letting air in through the crank hole.

I put my Grubee bike back in storage, and went for a ride on my Dax bike. I've got to source screws for the grubee cog, to fit the Howard clamp, then tighten and dish the wheel. Rather drive my FD bike.

I was able to find a quality #41 chain at McFadden-Dale Hardware. 10' for $20 bux! Installed it and rode about 10 miles, SMOOTH! Now I can do some distance riding...& race next month too!

Straightened my back wreck-damaged wheel. (Well, PRETTY straight now anyway.)

Used my china girl to take care of some business. She rides fine, runs good.

I have to use the choke to start it now. I guess it's the warmer weather?
Back when it was still in the 50's and 60's, she fired right up with no choke.

My wrist is healing fine, though I still can't work. I have yet to visit the specialist.

I've got lots of people praying for me, so if any of you want to add me to your list . . .

You're on my list, back in 2008 I crashed a dirt bike in the back yard while tuning the carb with the left hand and driving (well sorta) with the other. I was going about 10mph, went down on my left shoulder and broke my collar bone. With my arm under me I also broke four ribs and Rupshired my spleen. The total bill was 70k which included a helicopter ride I didn't enjoy.
