    Didn't "eat" the first one, just wore it plumb out. :D

    That's 3 this year for cranks, crank bearings, and top ends, and 1 of 'em also got a transmission/primary. NEXT!! :thumb

    More likely the dry heat has fried his brains and now is in a cult. THE LEAGUE.

    I found a TY80 that has been in adult hands, well cared for and used very little.
    Now the bike is going to teach a kid how to ride.
    All it needs is a beer can head gasket.

    Thin silicone 1 layer is much faster than fabricating a gasket.

    But then you don't get to empty the can to use for gasket.

    A bit of a "get off" resulted in 1 destroyed kill switch. No prob, I'll have that fixed in a jiff!!

    That was 3 years ago.

    Time for a new one, since the Season Ender of MWVTA is coming up in a couple of short weeks. Took a break from Mopar work to install this -

    Yup, a cheapie ChunKing K&S button. What the hell, I like it better than those Jitsie magnet POS'. Came complete, except for......mounting hardware. *Sigh* If you think I'm afraid to zip-tie this thing on.....

    Next up is a new clutch actuator assembly from Yambits. After more Mopar work.... :D

    And all the Allen heads will be stripped, but way harder for the casual observer to see! :D

    Plus my TY175 had new Domino perches and levers on it....
