ANY WAY, OJ got it's first oil change in over 2 years -



Mmmm, reflections in the filthy oil........




Refilled with oil that is simply way too good for it. I run the same stuff in my 4RT Montesa, so I use it in both bikes -





Then I tried something....well....different. I found these bar risers in my toolbox. They had come off of a '76 BMW R90/6 that I had some 17 years ago. Since I "ape" over the bars as it is (I'm 6'" tall, almost all of it leg) I figured it was worth a try. Too bad it looks rather silly -







Took it out riding today. The risers may look silly, but I can't complain about how the bike feels with them on though. I'm thinking risers with an inch shorter rise would be about right.

Or a set of custom billet triple clamps with a nice set of custom bar mounts and tall Trials bars.

More to come!
