Check out the Lowrider type bike stores for that stuff. (1" stems and ape hangers) I hate those dinky lo rider bikes but some of the handlebars are cool, and the tires are pretty tough.

I rerouted my flexpipe exhaust, fine-tuned chain tensions, on my way to buy a new helmet.

You never can be too careful these days. My bikes sleep in the house with the Dogs and I.

sorry to hear about the bike almost being stolen .. i live both my unlocked out front my house all the time.. maybe i should lock them.. i use a tow chain for cars and a master dial lock normally... thirty five dollar chain but worth every penny and when you get used to it .... then it does not seem so heavy or too big.. need to do my chain and back sprocket on the new bike so i can ride her... what is the bolt sizes i can buy or a adapter piece from a store for a front motor mount? found out that my bike runs alot slower with more back pressure but not so many vibrations and it is ohh so much quieter..going to make a new fat extension pipe for the new bike asap... all out of copper tubing and the io do things ... that make it easy to go bigger... will have to post pics and prices .. and do a video of what they sound like without the pipes and with the pipes i make.. now time to build my fiberglass fenders that will be half moons and then add magnets to the wheels to charge the bike light system...

You can get a "kryptonite" type chain from walmart for about $10. It works with the round security padlock, but barely (links are big). It has a nice cloth pad on it except the end links.

I have no love for cold, bitter, winter weather. I couldn't do any painting tonight, it got cold and frosty here again. I did putter with the clutch lever though. I wanted to expand the draw on it, to make adjusting the pull of the clutch easier. I've always had very long fingers so, to take advantage of them, I carefully used dremel and needle files and slowly took down material at the point where the lever meets its housing, so it would swing further out at rest. I checked it in a mounted state and it's still not out of reach for me, but it pulls a little bit further now. I like it this way. If I can pull all that I've learned from the previous bike together, the Higgins will be both beautiful and very easy and comfortable to ride.
