    Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

    Hope your enjoying that cold one Brent. Really, that is just one heck of a day. I'd be throwing stuff, cursing an' kicking.

    Not that it is near as frustrating. But bought a Mill/lathe. Most expensive tool I ever bought. Been looking for my digital calipers for a coupla weeks. I brought it in last fall so the batts would not die. Well, used it a few times and lost trac of where it was. Bought a cheap plastic one but it could not do fractions. (only MM or inches) So had a 25% off coupon and bought another one. Happens every single time. Walked in the house and all but put my hand on the old one. snork.

    Think I'm gonna join ya in a beer. (well, not in one but ya know wut I mean)

    Turns out it is legal to buy beer on the 4th here in CT, but no one knows it! I showed 3 super markets the state. gov's web site and they would not sell me a dang beer!

    "Tightened this, greased that, and replaced one piece crank. Stared lovingly at the bike, got a coffee and sat down at the computer in this forum."

    I see you speak (hot and tired short hand) for every one who else, I did a lot of maintenance work on my 26in. cruiser MB. I was able changed out my bent one peace cranks. I had bent them in a crash, yes I'm fine just got scratch up it was the day before Willow Spring and I was fine for the races.

    Tell the police and do whatever they say do whether it be to fill out a form so theyll know what to look for. 30+ set of eyes is better than 1. :) Hope the theif is caught and thrown in jail.

    Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

    After yesterday I woke up early with a hangover from the beers I worked so hard to try and get with my MB.I then went out and started to repair my rim I destroyed after fixing my motor problems yesterday.I replaced the broken spokes then put my rim back on,I also noticed the crappy chain tensioner had moved and got bent from the chain and also the rear brakes were messed up.I made a spring loaded chain tensioner and put the disk brakes back on the rear as I had taken them off thinking they were draging.

    I took my bike out for a test spin then put it on the lawn for sale to see if I could sell that one as well,I had just sold my other one to a guy who had been looking into these and gave him a good deal.

    I think I am going to do a 4 stroke briggs as we can go up to 5 hp in NH and I want to get a reliable ride to work not tinker every night so I can ride it to work.Dont get me wrong I like to tinker but I would rather upgrade tinker than repair tinker.

    Took my stock muffler off and cleaned the metal gasket, and port and put it back together and it definitely runs better. Also figured out what has been leaking. The drain screw in the bottom of my carb is leaking. Im gonna liquid nail it into place. lol

    Just ordered this frame to see if the faux tank can be modified to make into a real tank for my next toy...

    Mark, did you see this thread? http://motorbicycling.com/f26/fuel-bags-31290.html

    If it works, would be pretty awesome in a frame like yours and got me thinking.

    Can't wait to see what you build with that. Sweet looking frame.

    Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

    WoW !

    I can't come near the smooth look of that zombie bike pic's styling!

    I cut a cardstock template for a tank, yesterday, the 4th.

    Kind of a small space, and I'm concerned the volume may not be enough for the work it would take... Any thoughts?

    Tnx

    My first thought was it looks awesome the way it is Rusty, lol.

    I would send that pic to Anheuser-Busch. Bet they would love it.

    RC go wider with it hold the shape and go out past the cantilevers 1/2in. or so it will make the gas cap easier to fit.

    Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

    Yea Dan I read over the bladder thread but as you said a real fuel bladder is a lot of dollars. I think I can cut the tank that is already there off and weld in a 1-1.5" spacer on either side and seal up the bottom and put a Bung King inlet on for less.... Yea I love the styling of the frame and have a neat idea on how to mount an engine in it.

    Thanks Rusty now all I have to do is make it work LOL... I have to agree to make your tank wide enough to get a bug in it easily. Here are some links to filler necks and Bungs

    Filled it up with 40:1 synthetic 92-octane and went for a ride. I have a little over 500 miles on this popper and it runs fine. the sweet spot is around 25 MPH.

    Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

    Replaced my clutch pucks with silicone hose cut to size in preparation for my bulk order of silicone. Works really well, though it's just barely enough exposed over the ring to grab. Works better than ragjoint material though - which is what was my ghetto replacement.
