Today I will be swapping some forks out. I was given two mountain bike frames, both with engines, and an assortment of parts. I hope to make one complete bike that will be my daily driver until I get my custom project off the ground, then will become my backup bike once my other project is complete. So I am switching forks because one frame has a disc fork, but the other frame is in better shape for use. I won't be able to run a disc right away because the pads and calipers are missing, so I will be installing a c-brake for the time being but I figured easier to switch forks now before the bike is together and all the hand controls have to be disconnected.

MAN! I keep going back to that photo & looking at them wide white walls and all that twisted steel and CHROME, and I envision some dude cruising along, humming Margaritaville while watching the tourists on that baby. What a piece of work!

First cruise to work of the season for me today. They swept the shoulders yesterday on the last 5 miles of my commute, which is the busy part with traffic the rest is rural along a river. My grin goes ear to ear this morning, it's like my own private lane out there. Gorgeous clear calm sunny day here in Maine, I hope everyone else's Friday is off to as nice a start as mine! Hoping to drill my intake cover and size my HS142F jet this weekend.

Very cool & breezy, so today I have fired the ol' soldier up & listened while I spend some time making improvements to my garage. Perhaps a ride around the 'hood in a bit after a walk-around. Difficult to hear the engine over the wind chimes, today.

Mixed bag for me today. I pulled the carb off my HS142F, sized up the main jet and aerated the stock cover AGK style. I was all excited to get out and test. Then while I was changing the oil, I noticed my crank was loose, went to tighten the cotter pin, and discovered that the threads were stripped, argh! The chainring itself has always been out of round, so at least I have a chance to upgrade it. But now I can't really test my jetting or even ride till I get some new crank parts since I'm on a coaster brake in back. Buddy of mine just said "weld it" and I was seriously considering it but that would just make it harder to remove to fix properly. So kind of a bummer today. I've got my eyes on either one of sportscarpat's cranksets or just going whole hog and setting up an SBP shifter kit which would require rebuilding my rear wheel with a new hub. Gonna see if I can figure something out to safely repair what I've got here in the mean time.
