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

I got my motorbicycling.com stickers. I'm going to put them on the cargo box on top of my Dax kit.

I made a deal to sell my happytime and all the goods, so I have been compiling leftover bike parts to put on the frame of the beach cruiser, to save the massive coaster wheel set for a 1x1 mountain bike next year, that I hope to eventually equip with a BMP and a 52cc harbor fart motor. I won't be sad because I got the bike I liked best in the first place (friction drive with Japanese engine). My friend is happy because he moved and misses his HT. I am happy because I will have a 20" wheel frankenbike beach/yard bike for fooling around on rainy days, and I can quit paying a storage fee after I clean out my shed of the second motorized bicycle and some garage sale stuff. Yay!

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/i...dbZsrB6iUYGdPX something like that! But not as cool. Oh well, it is at least going to get ridden!

Gave ol' Tempus a pretty thorough checkup. Nothing amiss that I could find, so down I went through the twists and turns of Southwest Street. Needed to head up to the store, but we all know that usually we don't need an excuse. Enjoyment of riding is reason enough.

my clutch button broke today..the small washer flew off so my button was barely attached to the bike. i drilled a small hole in the pin and made a makeshift cotter pin out of a paperclip, i tested it and it seems fine, tomorrow we'll see how it holds up
