Maybe later in the week, we'll see how long it takes me to paint the frame and install the mount.

By any chance do you, or someone you know have a gas tank cover for sale locally?

not that I know of... I keep contemplating getting one too, but I just spruced mine up with an SOS pad - it gives it a nice brushed metal look :meh:

I finally started wiring my hunk of junk this afternoon :ucrazy:
I also got some LED head lights I am going to custom fab on, so as much as I said I would never get rid of the front basket/lights, I think I am after all (I just love the classic Ruckus look)... undecided just yet.

If my parts get in this week and it all goes together well (fingers cross) I should be out riding this weekend :popcorn:

I'm in no rush to get one, I cleaned mine up but it could get better. Thinking your SOS pad is a good idea, or maybe I'll just paint it black, it will almost look the same as if a cover was on there!

I hope you finish soon!

My Password order has shipped! I decided to take the risk and order from their site directly even though Mercutio warned me they ship UPS, and I've delt with their brokerage fees before, but to my surprise they shipped my items USPS :D

Now the waiting game begins.

Ha! They must have seen my post and changed their evil ways.

APearson: Just emailed you back...if you still want the other extension. :) if not no worries. BTW, :D you could use truck bed liner or "Plasti-Dip" spray (avail. @ Home Hardware) to black-out that tank and/or frame.

plasti-dip bothers me... I hate the feeling of it when it's dry :ucrazy:

Krylon has always been awesome for me, and much cheaper... and it doesn't dry all yucky plasti-dip feel

I'm just going to paint it black, I have some that will work just fine! Tried to get my back wheel off but she's on there to tight so I need to borrow a couple tools. Gotta get it off before paint!.

Looking forward to grabbing that extension kit off you though!

:banger:

as an artist with artistic license I am able to fully support and agree with the above comment without incriminating myself in any way, shape or form.


this is COMPLETELY off topic, but just thought I would share with you guys (if there are any nerds out there like me with glasses) that clearly contacts has a sale on right now for first pair of glasses free (just pay any lense upgrades and shipping... and you only have to buy 1 pair)

And now back ON topic -- weather is supposed to get better for the weekend!~

Haha good to know! I need a new pair of glasses actually. Though the contacts are thrown on whenever I leave the house! I'm so excited! Weather network only predicts 1 day of rain in the next couple weeks! :canuck:

yeah I just got a pair of glasses for $38 bucks shipped with all the coatings :popcorn:
And then I created a new account and ordered a pair of rx sunglasses for $89 shipped -- we'll see if they catch it as an non-compliant use of coupon code haha


Sunday looks like it may be boooootiful! touch-wood/fingers-crossed

Well, last evening after work found me on the first real ride of the season! :banger:

I cruised down 76 ave to 99 st then up and down whyte a few times, using whyte(82 ave) all the way back home. I was averaging around 55-60k which is pretty much what it would do before i messed with it 8) but the variator isn't even broken in yet plus i still need to check the valve clearance.

70k on flats is what i want!

*has fingers crossed for sunday ridin'*

I love cruising down whyte! I'm down there a lot because I have friends on that side of town. I'm also only able to get 55-60 max on flats as well. But I guess the cold air has a little to do with that. We'll see when it warms up I guess! Ripped apart the bike today go get at the frame, the first layer of paint is drying so I should have everything installed by this time tomorrow. Not looking forward to putting all the tubes and wires back though!

You should try swooping in behind cars. I can get up to 70 when I do that. What I usually do is wait till one passes me and right away I go right behind the car.

nice! I live just off whyte so I loser-cruise it a lot in the summers - usually down to Hawrlak park (one time Mr Lahey in the Parks van started chasing me through the park with his little flashing light and when he caught up to be started yelling that I was TOO FAST and kicked me out bwhahaha - yes my little GET was juuuuusttt flying through there at astronomical speeds)

According to FedEx my parts are to be here today... :popcorn:
Now I just have to finish the rats nest of wiring...
And then it's GY6 town.


Oh, and if anyone is looking for a CDI I have a Kitaco CDI I can sell...
