What did the bottle n gas run you?
Bottle purchase was $200 and 75/25 AR/CO2 fill was $42.
Made a pair of cribbing blocks.
Did you assemble that yourself?
Fantastic! I JUST hit up the Youtubes like Wednesday to see a couple designs of wheel cribbs. I think i have found a stackable design so i can have variable heights.
I think stackables are the way to go. Just make sure the sections lock together tightly.
So a buddy gave me head...
wait, that came out wrong. I was cleaning the barn today, like every day, and found a Ducati 749 Desmo head a buddy gave me. It sheared a key and bent valves, so he just got another head and swapped them out. I figured it'd be easier to put away if I took it apart, then one thing led to another. Anything to avoid cleaning.
Does it open a beer? LMAO
No sculpture here. Just a clean and lube of the chain and front and rear pads along with cleaning up the rotors.
All I did was pump up the tires in the bicycle and go for a ride. Puts me at 120 miles for the week.
I’m running a modified Busa rear brake setup on one of my Sportsters. I recently changed exhausts and needed more stroke at the pedal to keep from hitting the pipe, so I decided to try to bend it.
I thought I was screwed when I wanted to bend it a little more, but it worked.
I think I'll change it again next oil change and see what it looks like.
Back to books for a minute: halfway through Blue Highways and am enjoying it. Some of what he talks about and the writing style remind me of “Let Us Now Praise Famous Men” by James Agee. It is a very interesting view of a piece of American life and considered a classic. That bike ok reminds me of the Merchant system of the fishery where I live in Newfoundland.
Washed the Tuono and wrapped up some details. Then took it for the first ride in over 2 years. Damn I forgot how much I love that bike.
That final drive oil is perfectly normal for a first or second change.
Replaced the alternator in my 94 gto tt. I love this car but man working on her is a nightmare. Avoid the 3000gt / stealth if you have hands larger than a newborn's.
Not exactly in my garage but did some electrical work on this 1946 Rock Ola jukebox for a neighbor . Replaced the spinning color wheel and motor and fixed some lights. Amazing how this mostly original machine has held up after being in a local Honkey Tonk for over 30 years.
Thou art a braver and more patient man than I. I've always looked at those engine bays with abject fear.
Rolled my bike out of it to go for a nice morning ride before it got too hot.
