He had a hungry brush take a liking to the slip ring and try to eat it.

Don't sweat it man. If it wasn't for full service types like Stage, I'd miss alot too (and Solo always gives me crap when I miss the easy stuff )

Ya just CANT read every thread... at least I can't. And that's just old school. I rarely get to look at the other forums.

today in the backyard

well I give up trying to attach a pic. Uploads keep failing.

But the bike is finally running fairly well. Keep throwing parts at it and it will finally succumb.

Happiness is coming home to find new tires on your doorstep.

Here's the older minion doing some quality assurance inspection on the new rubber. Had to trim off as many of those little (what do you call those?) rubber hairs as he could.

I've seen surf boards hauled behind a bike, but never a kayak. I'd think the hot ticket would be to strap it to a dolly at one end, and strap it to the rack at the other. At 7ft wide you're legally ok, but that's almost as wide as a semi.

She's in dire need of some TLC. I had my slip rings turned by an electrical shop once and keep them up to snuff with a commutator stone.

These are one of the finest bikes ever produced... but they ain't submarines.
