Well done! That bobber was hideous!
Thanks, Yeah I thought so too. I saw the poor KZ and decided it was shame to let it die looking like that.
If I could it would be a barn find Yamaha IT or YZ 465 resto mod would be fun.
Changed the Bandit oil and filter.
Helped a friend add lighted door sill plates to his Chevy Cruze.
After working for hours trying to break loose this big nut on a Piaggio BV250 swingarm, I switched to waking up an old Argo that my son-in-law parked in a garage 10 years ago. After clearing out the old gas and cleaning the carb it started! This must be the most primitive machine I worked on in years. It's a skid steer amphibious off road thing.
Those things are fun!
I made a gas tank for a lawn mower, and I used some advanced manufacturing techniques to prototype a petrochemical reservoir chamber to increase the run time ability of my mobile all terrain refined hydrocarbon recycler.
Love the verbage!
Not sexy, but cold weather is coming fast. Dumped several gas-cans of stored gasoline into the vehicle, refill up the cans with fresh gas, and stabilized it.
Siphoned as much gas as I could from the generator, fueled it up, and was pleased to have it start 1st pull. Turned off the petcock and ran it out of fuel, and then put it away again.
Then I got out the snow thrower. Fueled it up, and it started 1st pull! Now in the garage, ready for the inevitable.
I should go buy a lottery ticket, but I am too lazy.
Made me think Banana Splits, but I think those were Amphicats
Yes, Amphicats. My uncle Charles had one and he also loved to entertain kids. We ran the shit out of that thing. Yes, we absolutely rolled it a few times.
replaced some rollers, looked at the tars, wondered why everything can't be a two stroke
Last week has been restoration of a second story deck, forest landscaping and painting. Home improvement is work.
Teaching the boys how to save $500 by doing a brake job yourself. New rotors and pads on my 2006 Tundra.
Nice one, teach them young and they’ll never be dependent on someone else.
My daughter just asked me yesterday. "Dad can we order my rear brakes for my car? I would like to do them before the weather gets bad" She's almost 16.. she has already found the value in considering DIY when its her own money. She understands when something is going to cost X number of weeks pay that she made working over the summer. She has saved a bunch so far doing oil change and plugs herself.
I'm looking forward to the lesson of how to properly jack up a car and change a tire.
