    I see that my hockey pucks have arrived at the house. I think I'm going to use 6 of them in my overkill mount set-up.... maybe.

    Played with my pucks today. Had the owner of LASLO RACING bore me some holes. I gave him the pucks and told him what I was using them for and you should have seen the wheels start spinning. He said he had never thought about using hockey pucks for anything. Or even thought about hockey pucks for that matter. It was a good day.

    Initial Speedometer placement

    It's there till I find or make a perfect mounting bracket. What the heck did we ever do without cable ties?

    Handle bars are in.
    Mirrors are in.
    Speedo mount is there to stay.

    Looks like it's time to roll this baby into the garage and out of the office for the rest of the build.

    Gonna be a good weekend.

    Just found out that my Stewart-Warner speedo is from 1962. That's 3 years before I was born.

    -I just finished mounting my adjustable sprocket from the Manic Mechanic. I will now only have sandwiches for lunch thank you. What a great piece of machinery!

    Been raining ALL day but I got quite a bit of work done.
    Rear Sprocket (Manic Mechanic Adjustable) SWEET and EASY.
    Chain break and adjust. The 1/2 by 3/16 killed my little chain breakers. Oh well. Hammer and punch worked.
    Rear fender cut
    Cut fender stops
    Put all the fenders back together and put them back on. YES
    Hooked up the speedo. Works. Double YES.
    Started working on my chain tensioner.

    Maybe tomorrow it won't rain.
