I changed out the front tire on the beast this afternoon. It wasn't in the plans for the day, but it was sitting on just enough pressure to keep it off the rim. Pulled it, tracked down and patched a tiny pinhole in the innertube. The knobby I've been riding on is pretty worn, but showed no sign of anything stuck in it. I went to an 'All Terrain' street tire for a change. It's smaller, 1.75" compared to the 2.125" but it should be a slightly smoother ride.

Broke yet another chain.. I got the culprit though..
Chain slack + a part of the housing in the way.

Ordered new masterlink.
Lost my Chain Tensioner

Found A Chain Break tool at Harbor Freight for $15
Bought A camo tarp I will use, turning the bike into a blind for deer hunting once I get it running again

Hunting is awesome. I would have an awesome time combining biking and hunting. motor assisted bicycle biking and hunting would be the best! Putter in and hide out, take your game, then fire it up and drag it out with a trailer or tow rope. hahahha. Maybe a pusher trailer with a 5HP Briggs, silencer muffler, and belt drive to a live axle would do it all. Then you could tie the deer down on the trailer and ride out.

Here's my deer/camping/fishing trailer (no engine) http://www.instructables.com/id/low-...onversion-fro/

I took off the standard ''i'm riding a CB 1100 Hurricane'' goose neck and almost straight across handle bar

Then installed a nice aluminum billet goose neck ''SALVAGED FROM THE TOWN DUMP IT WAS PAINTED AN UGLY BLUE '' sanded it back to it's original brilliant aluminum luster also sanded and painted the standard BMX handle bars so i'm not laying on my stomach and other stuff when i'm riding i like to sit back and ride not lay on my stomach.

Now my bright red TREK is ready for the all black motor kit

Expect a much rougher ride on any rough spots in the road, I put so fairly high dollar 1.75 tirw s on my Kulana bike a couple years ago and it rides like a tank on a rough road, fixing to go with some 2.125 tires for better width and a better ride.

Hope yours isn't same result as mine, I dont like the narrow 1.75 tires at all, less rubber on the road and rough riding.

I think i'm going to have to drill a hole through the aluminum goose neck ao i can have front breaks as the other goose neck had a hoe that the front cable for the front brakes used as an anchor, unless I can fabricate some kind of an older reflector holder that resides on the goose neck into an that an anchoring point
