Awesome PhotoJ!

My all time favorite build was a wally world, cheapo frame. (aluminum) Swapped power plants on her many times and regularly did over 40 MPH. But frame was fine until well over 10K miles, I hit the same pot hole at speed twice. It was in the north end of Hartford. The land that road maintenance forgot. And finally cracked her. I about cried for "Ol' Red"

Great Vid and choice of music, PhotoJ!

Please, please take a look at your front fender! It will try and kill you! Pick any thread and please read. With out a helmet, she will face plant you at 20 or 30 MPH quicker than you can say "OH S...." BASH.

I searched "fender" alone. And I personally came up #2 as the recipient of this weeks Darwin award. No Kidding Brodder, please take a gander. As I bounced up from my face plant on tarmac, alls I could think was Carol would be spoon feeding me for the rest of my vegetative life. Luckily, I was wearing a helmet. Or I would have been Mr. PotatoHead. Don't mean to come off preachy and sorry if I am. But some body loves ya and it's selfish of us to do stupid. Although in my case, my family is used to it, snork.

During rides, some song always pops in my head but the voices there in, often change the words to something MB related or to the personality of the particular bike. They really do have their own quirks and personalities. So each gets a song. In my head any way.

But you should do one for Her. That is a beautiful MB! Here are some of my attempts;

Man Greg! The pictures in the first post haunt me. Oddly enough that is a point beach and that post was the very first time I read of the dangers of fenders coming loose.

And I went ahead and face planted 3 or 4 years later thinking a Kuna's fenders were secure!

Really scary stuff.
