I mopped up the little bit of oily fuel that leaks on the parking mat when I store it, gave it a long, reminiscent gaze, and took a nap with the baby, imagining the day I will get to ride the motorbike again.

Put disc brakes on the front of the Norton Jag. Got a great deal at the LBS. They had a 30 and 50% off sale. Got a new rim, caliper and rotor. I had to weld on caliper bracket mounts and sort of messed up the paint job. I'll have to wait for better weather to test the brakes and repaint the left side of the fork. It's only 7 degrees today. What I can tell just rolling the bike forward in the garage is a dramatic improvement over the 'V' brakes which were actually pretty good. This thing grabs the wheel, right now when you clamp down on it.

And yes, I need to trim off the end of the cable but I want to test it first...in case I need to go back to 'V' brakes I'll need that extra cable.
I'll let you know how it does on the road.

It snowed again!. Is going to snow more but will stop tomorrow while it freezing rains. But after that, it will snow.

So pretty much moved daily rider (snork@daily) out of the way so as to move snow removal/moving tools around.

On a personal good note, I got a temp contract driving updated electronics to McDonalds techs around New england as needed. Is from 10PM to 6AM for 2 weeks. Pays well as they want the restaurants open ASAP. In the snow.

it is snowing

With the ice storms and Cleveland-like temperatures we've been having here in Indy, I haven't done too much on the Higgins. I'm still working the bugs out of the new headlight housing construction. I have this dream that I can make it mostly weather-proof.

I also took note that my Kent Glendale has a three-piece crank set with a relatively wide spread. So, to give a better, roomier engine mount to the Higgins, I intend to swap out the single-piece crank in addition to adding a 36T BMX pedal sprocket. If I can go outside later without some parts of my anatomy freezing solid and dropping off, I plan to get out my caliper and take some measurements. This build might very well take all winter at this rate, but being meticulous never hurt anybody (that I know of).

took her for a quick ride with the 26" disc wheel on the front and the chopper forks...

it was kinda hard to keep her going straight, i think i'm gonna have the local bike shop swap the hubs on them, or at least get a disc hub for the front and have them fit it on there.
