OK, from a post about a month or two ago I bought some tires. Last night I got some wheels. So I have a new set of tires and wheels ready when I need them. I can't appreciate ebay, amazon and this forum enough.

Went out for a test ride with my self made 3 spring beach cruiser suspension seat today . Man this changed everything about the way it rides now. For who ever interested in this, its a clone of Crow Cycles seat. It Reallllllyyyyyy works well. Built mine out of spare seat parts and no welding.

Replaced the broken fuel shutoff lever on my carb petcock. Almost 3 weeks ago, I took a little spill and the lever snapped off. The petcock still worked, but was stuck in the ON position. I searched the net for a replacement, but none were to be found. I joined a minibike forum since my engine was originally from a minibike, and posted a thread asking if anyone knew where to find one. A member offered to send me the entire petcock assembly for free, and it got here today while I was at work. I was watching movies with the wife and only just got to it a few minutes ago. It only took a minute or two. Grabbed the parts, a flathead screwdriver and a flashlight, and it was done, son.

I did some Mad Scientist work today on the Vintage AMF project.

So here is what popped out of the cutting, hacking and grinding....
