I was replacing my worn out rear tire when I discovered a broken spoke. It was ironically on the pedal chain side. Glad I discovered it before the wheel came apart on me in traffic.
Spoke replacements are a real pain because I have to remove the cogs and the motor sprocket.

Played with springers again. Got em to about half their original function which is more then enough but decided to experiment with different springs of varying spring-ning-ness. Called Norm (Venice motor bikes) at the end of the day and he had some great suggestions. Good guy to do business with.

But pretty much rode around all day successfully avoiding any sort of gainful employment or work. (I have the week off from one job, no calls from the other and my gigs, the phone hasn't rung in a week)

Beautiful, sunny warm day. Had some great conversations with folks about my MB. Not sure if I was ever that bummed to see a sun set as I was tonight. I have no lights on this bike and the whole black ice thing.
Vid is really lousy. Gotta get a good cam

I like all the talk I started about shoes and boots lol, I think I have come up with a plan to get the job done. I am going to get one of those really thin nylon cutting board and will cut the shape I want out of it. I will then attach some kind of cloth to the outside with and a short zipper in the back. And the end product should be a waterproof cover for the front and top of my shoes. I wonder what the best kind of glue to use to secure the leather to the nylon hmm maybe contact cement or hot glue hmm? oh and last night took a ride to the bar and then mcdonalds whilst at mcdonalds me and the bike took a slip on the ice. nothing on the bike broke so I am pleased peace out

Got my BGF 4 stroke,Sunn Cruiser going today. That.s 2 builds in 2 weeksLOL I'm so lucky.
Put about 5 hard miles on it seating the rings.

Realy impressed with how quiet it is.

Geared kinda tall with 3.25/1 chainbox and 11/48 secondary drive. Needs pedal assist on take-off, but slightly over 40mph top end so far.

I converted the chainbox to oil bath, so far, it is VERY quiet.

Couldn't help it ,I just HAD to try it with the muffler end removed. Sounded good,not too loud, /seemed to run a little better too. Gonna put it back tho.
