I'm not using the white wire... you had already advised me against it

But one or both of the wires were touching the socket I had the switch sitting in. Electrical tape fixed it.

VIKTR, sorry bro. Yer right, we already talked about this. I read and answer so many posts on two sites that sometimes I lose track. The reason I thought it was a white wire issue is the only way to get a shock is to ground a wire to the frame, and thats how the factory recommends doing it.

Replaced a crank that blew the bottom con-rod bearing(of course, only bearing not easily fixed, doh!). Crank bearings were locked onto that crank and came out of the case with it(no decent puller yet). Soo, dug out an old case for bearing harvest... Swap bearings from 49 case to 66 after freezing bearings/heating case in oven, reassembled.

And all with only one decent blood blister Good day

Not really an "oil leak" Just a dirty old 2 stroke doing what it does best, Throwing oil everywhere. What is your mix ratio? If it's a LOT of oil on yer cylinder you might be running it too heavy. If it's a new engine then thats fine. Anyway, just wondering how much oil yer using per gallon.

Welded the other side of my motor mount. See the Huffy build for the pictures.

swapped my mountain bike forks w/disk brake and shocks along with the handlebars on it, completely changed the look and feel as well as the riding experience. stopping is amazing and the steering will take a little getting used to but so far i like it...




couldnt find the motivation to swap out the rear white wall for a all black tire, but i will eventually

I changed up the the seat position from this...


To this...


On what was my dad's 58' Schwinn Wasp.


The Huffy is not in the build mix right now because I want to build up my dad's old bike in honor of his passing. So now I am switching all the Huffy parts to the Schwinn Wasp. Take a look at the link below for the build progress. Still not sure if I want to repaint it or just go with the rat rod look.
