Gotta love HF.. The only place that I feel compelled to buy a set of 27 screwdrivers for 7.99

I have screw drivers!! But there they were! Razz emoticon

Still wanting for the frame to get painted. So I sandblasted and painted the rims, hubs and exhaust. Can't wait to get this scoot together and ride.

Thanks Vader, just can't wait, but I'm not going to rush the painter (and piss him off). Still, much better off than a year ago (3/19/14) when I had my second back surgery and was laid up for 8 weeks. Building that Super was the only thing that kept me from going bonkers.

They want to take away your no claim bonus for a teensy-weensy little claim like that? Bastards.


Hey does anyone know for sure if SIP remove the German VAT from the advertised price when you place an order? I had a feeling they do but didn't want to place an order to find out.

showed my roommate my now running rally 200. He asked me to get this old yamaha 100cc 2 stroke running. said he'd pay me $10 an hour real time. He provides parts and tools. sounds like fun.

Nice! Just got asked by a pregnant friend to do the same thing except this will be for her firstborn. It was the bike her dad taught her to ride on. The things teeny.

On the scooter. You can't legally ride over here without insurance so no choice really. Talked to a guy in work today that worked for an insurance company. Said a good 20 grand or so would have went to the skag head. The rest would have been Pissed away on legal fees

Last weekend I went on a rally with the Wild Dog Creek SC, there were about 40 odd scooters. I was the only one with a pillion and I had a tent, 2 sleeping bags, clothes, extra fuel etc. We did about 100k's through some nice country although the roads were a bit rough at times. Coming down a hill and over a creek I felt the rear brake dragging. It didn't seem to free up as we were coming up the other side, so I pulled over to check it out.

Looks like a nice ride G.. you already shared the hub pics w/ me, and I still think that's nuts! I'm glad it wasn't an injury type disaster.. but I'd never seen one like that.. you see something new every day..

I'm glad you had fun up until that point though!


... today I...

.. had noticed my P was acting funny.. so I inspect and find I can see little bubbles at the rear base of the reed block.. the gasket had finally failed.. So I took the block off (S&S 35mm block) and swapped it for an MRP (less parts), put new reeds in (It seems like I just did this, but the edges on one of the reeds were already fraying at the leading edge)

.. then I tapped the MPR block for a fuel pump fitting (I had planned to dump the pump on this bike, but was too lazy at this point to re-do my fuel line setup. I didn't want to pull the tank! Razz emoticon ) Anyway, I drilled it, tapped it and put a new fitting in w/ some thread sealer..

bit of a PITA but it's all good and needed a a reed petal anyway.
