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

took it for a ride, had the chain jump off the tensioner, jam into the wheel, resulting in a bent rear axel...

looks like i'm gonna be buying a new bike now...

Made a new headlight bracket. The original was chrome plated pot metal and broke. I knew it was a weak link and might not hold up to the vibes and road shock. The new one is steel, welded to the housing. This one won't break. Guaranteed.

I've painted a three piece alloy crank anno red. It's got a 40 tooth single ring now. I got a bottom bracket conversion kit, going to put it in the cruiser real soon, with Red aloy bear trap pedals

Should save some weight- I have to lug this thing up and down a flight of stairs.

LOL, don't sweat it, this is cyberspace!

Everyone makes mistakes. Recently, I was rebuilding a Chevy engine, and it wouldn't start. Friends came over and pulled the new distributor. I had installed the distributor gear upside down on the shaft, a rookie mistake. Hey, no big deal to me, lol.

You can tell us, we won't razz you TOO much, lol. It'll be good to get it off your chest.....

as long as you didn't kill somebody or french-kiss your brother's wife!

My tipsy sister-in-law tried to french-kiss me in front of my wife. Of course, I told my wife what happened...

but at least I kept my mouth shut.....LITERALLY! LOL!!!!
