    I'll keep updating this thread since there is a chance I'll be keeping this thing, I'm not gonna give it away and if it doesn't sell it'll keep evolving.


    New front rotor is on, it's now safe for test rides.

    I always assumed the old big brake kit was EBC, but it's not stamped as such...I suspect it was made of Chinesium.

    Rest assured, the new kit is genuine EBC.

    You're in Sacto? I'm just down in EG. Might have to stop by and get it dirty for you.

    And our story comes to an end...

    My wife and I took a lap around the court and sent her onto the new owner.

    I swapped out the rear tire this morning to one with fewer plugs so it'll get there without going flat.

    Hadn't ridden it with the new front rotor and had to clearance the pad clip to match the adapter bracket. I tinker with them until they're gone.

    Don't know about around the world, but South America is a real possibility.

    thank you just Jeff. I appreciate the congratulatory note. Im super excited to get a leg over the zombie. Managed a few rides in the past, but never a report. I will make it my goal to do a report on the first noteworthy ride.

    Will do Nixels. I will update this thread so all the loyal followers and concerned aunties and uncles can see her in the new stable. Then I may have to start my own personalization story as well as pleas for help and advice. Unfortunately transit time could potentially be up to 3 weeks so please be patient.
