Just bought a Sturmey Archer 3sp hub for my bike. A HD shift kit will now be on the horizon. I just have to decide if I'm gonna tackle the lacing of the wheel..........

Had a flat rear tire the other day. And I couldn't remember when I last changed the front one. So replaced both of them. Used the old tubes as liners. Now if it would just warm up a little.

The raw one will get a motor swap from a 160cc to a big hp 212

Made up some copper liners for the Staton clamp, made up some anti rotation tabs, made up the gas tank mount and mounted the brace.

I scavenged off of saved junker bikes some Dia-Compe hand brake parts. They look more sturdy than the ones I have and the little adjuster threads are not bent or made of plastic. I don't know if on production motorcycles the brake handle on the twist grip throttle side is the same length as the other sides hand brake. I mention this as the twist grip throttle takes up maybe an inch an a half distance the hand brake has to reach near the end of the grips. This makes me think its not allowing the riders right hand to grab brake as well. This being due to the lump of the twist grip throttle offsetting where the brake lever is positioned. I thought I had the Dia-Compe levers being longer and I would mix and match hand brake levers, but they were the same length as the cheaper made ones on my bike. It is just the Dia-Compe were more rugged. I will put them on at some point as it is an off road motor (call it bike), but there are no pedals as it is licensed only as OHV registered.

Won't do too much with it today but stand around it briefly with a beer and chat with some guests over for dinner. Have a good Chrissy all.
For those who care not for it , just have a good day.

Yikes! Now we are on page # 666 of this thread and it's Christmas Eve.
No I am not superstitious, just making an observation.

As for what I did to my bike today, I moved it out of my way so I could get to Christmas presents hidden in the garage.

Merry Christmas!
