Started sanding rust off an old chrome headlight I picked up. The chrome is pitted pretty bad but I'm thinking of paint the shell the same color as the bike and the bezel black. It was only a quarter, so I can't go wrong. It has a great fluted lense. I took it all apart because I'm going to retro fit it with LED's and I was pleasantly surprised to find it had a horn in the back half. The horn looks to be in perfect shape. I think it will make a nice addition to the cruiser project.

Ran my lines for my dual tanks.
Now I'll have the ability to quickly (15 minutes) add a second tank for long expeditions.

That's dressed about right Dan. there is no way to hide from that wind in the cold it's a Killer. Hard to ride and hold onto the bike when shivering over comes normal reflexes.

Man, it's been raining all day these past few days. Today, it cleared up, so I rode to my workplace three miles away to retrieve my umbrella and papers. I was able to maintain normal speeds. Almost lost it making a left in the intersection, but the gods were with me.

The plug showed rich, so I leaned it out some. My GP460 engine is running very well.

Running low on fuel in my 4-liter Happy Time tank, so I'll ride to Chevron, pour oil in the tank and pump in two quarts. That should last me a while.

Also changed my sparkplug. I SHOULD fix the oil leak on the gearbox.
