re-wired my battery powered tail light, to use the magneto to run the leds on it.

then drained the tank, and managed to stuff my bike into the back seat of my car so i can take it to a car show tomorrow

My 24 x3.0 Berm Master Balloon tires came in finally. I am having a tough time finding a perfect heavy duty tube match. The tires are exactly what I was hoping they would be. I got one semi heavy duty tube here. So I am on the map! These are sorta like old Coker tires.

Cool Skarrd, car show folks go nutz seeing MBs. To transport MBs, I use a regular bike carrier. I got one at a church tag sale for 5 bucks. I am not suggesting this as it scares me to death but it hauls my HF build around and that dang thing needs 2 men and a dog to lift it up on a rack.

When you expecting your shifter kit?

Thanks happy I am stuck with non presta My favorite tube is about 2 mm thick. Least I am petty sure that's how thick they are. Alls I know is they are and have been truly bullet proof. If a guy lives in the wrong part of the world they can be tough to find. I found out if they are not labeled for 2.75 or 3.0 it aint it. Putting under sized tubes in is a perfect recipe for a blow out in my opinion.

Looking forward to your shift kit bike Skarrd!

Man those HF bikes would be a little heavy Dan.

Ayup Goat!

Just found a replacement engine for scooters to experiment with and weighs even more. Not gonna be fun, lol. But will have E-start, lighting and CVT tranny. Dunno if it will be worth the weight and size. Really thinking stop the madness and go back to China girls and a shift kit. Save a whole lotta cash an' effort. But then what would I do with spare time and cash, LOL

LOL Goat.

"Are you thinking what I am Pinky?
I think so Brain But how are we gonna get Cloris Leachman on a MB?"

That has to be one of the best cartoons ever made. Sort of Bugs Bunny humor meets modern.
