    Leather covered solo seat

    Finished! Ended up using a small drill bit, and just eyeballing the distance between the holes in the pan for the stitching. Used waxed nylon thread for the finishing, which took the longest time BY FAR of the whole project. I'd advise anyone going to try it to grab a couple movies and beers...

    Leather covered solo seat

    Next, ran by Tandy Leather. They didn't have any scraps of heavy leather like I wanted, so I settled on a scrap piece of goat leather. Might end up finding I needed a thicker piece, but since I've never tried this sort of deal, figured it was a good place to start. Plus, the piece was 20 bones...

    Manic Mechanic sprocket mods?

    Hey guys. Just got my Manic Mechanic hub adapter and sprocket (piratecycles ). They are both amazing, fit like a glove, and are so well made they're almost a little sexy. That being said, my sprocket's teeth are too big to fit the chain supplied with the kit. I'm planning on ordering a...

    SW Missouri newb? OF COURSE I have questions!

    Thanks Dan! I will post pics soon! So on the fuel tape front, would that basically bridge the gap left ftom not screwing in the filter into the tank until it bottomed out? Or should I use teflon tape on the threads as well? I am completely new to any sort of small engine stuff, but when I...
