Yeah of course, the back-pedaling vs starting etc etc.
Nice spare part to have laying around though. Cheers.

Lol.....!

Thanks for the adda boy.... sad thing is that the sprocket is no long on the Kulana bike, after the work I did on it yesterday Im thinking the 28T might qctually work on it now but considering what kind of max speed it seems Im getting on it now with the 34T I think I made a good choice and will end up with the 28T on the old Western Flyer bike since it has 24" wheels and already has a 30T which it pulls real nice so I think the 28T will have a nice home on the 24" wheel bike.

I relaced a rim/hub with stainless steel spokes to replace cheap,weak and breaking UCP spokes on a 4-5 month old wheel I bought at the bikeshop for $45.

Did a little bit of sanding, and 3rd coat of paint on the GT2A-S, mount, and engine cover, getting there. Nothing like waiting for paint to dry...

Wret, I love looking at the pics of your bike. I hope she rides as nice as she looks!

I spent some time tinkering the other day.. went to ake the cruiser out for a spin and it would turn over a few times then stop.. turns out some idiot had left the fuel line open, so it was flooded. After pulling the plug and dropping the clutch while rolling it coughed out a few big clouds of unburned fuel from the plug hole. Put the plug back in and it fired right up.

It's sunny and heading for the mid 'teens (in Celcius) today, I think I'm going riding later.....

Got a couple of longer rides (40km round trips) to work coming up. Thought it timely to check all the nuts n bolts are still done up since the recent build. When I built it I put tiny dot marks on things to see if they'd come loose. All dots still line up after about 600km, so happy with that. Apart from that I cleaned it a bit.

Didn't actually do anything to it, but I ordered up some new wheels and tires to round out my GT2A-S build. Still got plenty of paint work to do before the build, I'm 3 coats deep now, ready to wet sand tonight, then decals and clearcoats.
