I put a $20 Schwinn gel-springer seat on mine, rides REALLY nice. It's like floating on air compared to the stock Huffy springer.

IMO it's a pretty nice seat. It IS heavy though, so if you're worried about weight...well..lol It seems like it's almost twice the weight of the stock seat.

You obviously haven't actually SEEN my bike.It already weighs a couple tons.

I don't think a few pounds is gonna make a difference.

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

well after my hellacious journey in the rain, seems my supposed 20 fix ended up not happening because my hub is destroyed...even with the new bearings it still wouldnt roll...so 37.79 miles later and im still without a ride...and there isnt public transportation out here in the boondys...except a metro rail that runs every 3 hours in the wrong direction...no back wheel=no runs...and of course its gonna be like 50 degrees all dang week

Put the #66 jet in my Carb today, Then put about 20 miles on it. I can now see why people like these things. Most of the vibrations are gone, it runs a lot better, only 4 cycles at low RPMs. The vibrations are low enough that my bum didn't tingle after the ride, and I can see a car behind me through the mirror. I do believe a person can ride all day.

I like that spark plug wrench, you should stamp it OEM!

Today I did not drop a freshly parted part in the mud, but I did weld back what I cut too short for lack of light last time I was grinding a part.

I also was wondering what was going on if my generator was causing my welder to act funny. I though I was keeping an even distance from work with nozzle. It might have been that the two parts varied small amount of distance as the work was "V" ground to allow for full penetration. Maybe small distance changes happen as I waved the nozzle side to side instead of parallel in line to the work. I'll try that next time instead of doing both.

Occasionally I saw the weld wire molten ball at the end of the wire by the work creep closer to the nozzle. It eventually was quicker than I could react by pulling the nozzle back and I welded a tip on my MIG. I had lots of extra spares and it didn't happen again.

I finished grinding and sanding my adjustable slots for my twin stacked jackshafts and shall be assembling it all once again so belts don't slip.
