Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

It was yesterday actually, but... I set up a pair of crappy stock tensioners, replaced the bent pivot bolt in my forks, smeared Loctite on everything, and fired her up! All that's left really, is to replace my busted throttle assembly, everything else is more or less optional.
Despite my mushy gushy throttle I took her around the block, even pushed my luck up to 22mph. She rode pretty dadgum smooth. She needs some better brakes, but I need to ride some before I can comment further. Today, it raineth.

new exhaust. it's super nice, although i desire a little more top end and will need to change the crank to a wide crank to avoid the exhaust with my foot.

I spooled Murder out to 38.9. Felt like the Dax motor wanted to spin even faster, but the rings ain't seated yet, so I backed off. I'm being just as gentle as I can bring myself to be. Got paid today, so I might just order my SBP pipe today...

Well, since the city has decided that the smaller potholes in certain neighborhoods are no big deal, and seem inclined to fix them when they feel like it, I have dug out the old springer fork from the original incarnation of "Tempus", dusted it off, and began prepping and painting to match the current blazing red paint job.

I also made a brass fuel-overspray shield for the tank. Fresh pics here on the old thread I bumped:

Loaded mine on the back of the car to accompany me on 4 days of camping in NW Arkansas..........going back to the same place as pictured in my avatar. I fully expect the bike's top speed to be about 75mph on this trip.
