Lookin good.

I don't know if you've been to Rice Paddy Motorcycles. It's not exactly your back yard, but an easy day trip.

Looks like they're focusing on the internet sales now, but they have a funky warehouse location and piles of old bikes. It's hard by the railroad tracks by the state fairgrounds (and a one-way street to make harder to find IF I recall correctly).

A speedometer cable broke at about the state line, and I stopped there. They wanted me to test-fit the new-in-plastic Motion Pro cable to my bike before I paid. All the pieces were in place for a "special" price if not a gouging -- customer from away with part already installed -- when they charged me $8 or $10. Cheap.
