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

The other day was outside letting my bike idle and checking for leaks when an older dude I had seen riding around on a beach cruiser with seriously wild ape hangers before came up to me and made chit chat about my bike and the few he's built, really interesting cool old dude. Anyways as he's leaving he turns around and says that he has a set of old fenders laying around and if I wanted them they were mine,score! I had actually been looking for a rear fender for a while but never hit the right deal.

I only mounted the rear one after a little modification, and I didn't like the look of front one so I left it off.
I also picked up a sweet leather seat at the swap meet today for $30. Here's some pics

That's a good pic. Yesterday - went up to store - while ridding, sudenly felt like I broke an axle, or a spoke, so I took it easy and made it back home from store.
Today, I just pedaled it to store so I could see, and the wheel would push over to one side every time that I tourqued so I come home , fire up the heater in gar, got my tools , put on my coveralls, went out there and found out that all it was , was a loose wheel nut.

Installed my new throttle, kill switch and exhaust and finally fired up the engine after it has sit unused for about 9 months. It was good to hear it going, but the sitting hasn't been kind and I think I need to clean the carb to get the idling issues resolved...

All in all, I am getting close to taking it out for a ride, but I stiill have to:
install the pedals
hook up and tension two chains
change the oil
tidy up the wiring
tighten all the bolts

I retired my schwinn craig's list bike (see build thread in sig) and bought a Felt Propaganda. It took a while to get the tank and powdercoating done. Then I spent a long time trying to make a Monark fork work on the frame, then I switched to a Felt Abraham Linkage fork and then I moved... Finally getting close to having my new ride... a ride!
