I finished my bike today! It only took 5 freakin months to complete. Most of that time was spent waiting for parts on back order... I'm so happy.

Nice work, massdrive. That's a nice clean looking build.


Today I finally got back to the replacement tank for my cruiser. The original got dinged, and the impact transfer caused leaks at the tank studs. Anyway, the replacement tank has been painted and waiting for me for a while, so I finally striped and chrome trimmed it to match it's predecessor. Now I'll give it a little time to let the contact adhesive in the trim try to do it's thing and then swap it onto the cruiser.

How'd you do that? I've got 400+ mi on my original crank and pedals and haven't done that!

We have the same bike, btw.


BP! That's some crazy stuff right there. Glad you're okay, minus some bumps and bruises. Time for a brighter headlight I guess.

Quite possible it was just a bad casting. I had to replace a crank on my dad's mtn bike because he ripped the pedal out just like yours.
