New stand fitted (the old one was bent and was on since it was new, so 40 years old), and started the rewiring today. The engine will be coming out soon once I've rebuilt the PX engine. Headset off too to give it some paint.

Alignment was out on the ET4 so fixed that too.

Aye, I'm thinking of keeping the seat!

I'll make a project thread once the real work starts. It's very erratic at the moment due to the crap weather we've had here.

Thank's for the encouragement mate.

Plan to add a jacket and high tops this weekend and we'll move into those quiet neighborhood streets you mention. gatekeep... She has some motorcycle experience so the learning curve isn't steep at all. Just a ton o' fun...

Today
I fixed the statue of Liberty.
Swam the English channel.
Washed my whites.
Polished some 100 spoke rims for my whip.
Defragged my computer......with my teeth.....like Hendrix.


Oh yea, and what's a day without a plug chop......whatever that is.

Changed a rim, tire and tube without any help. This is the first mechanical thing of any consequence that I've ever done.

Don't be obtuse. You implied that Jimmy "beat you" to mocking my post on what I did today. I agreed with you, saying, "Yes he did." I then referred to your relationship with Jimmy as "besties." Is it a characterization you don't agree with?

You guys should get together and talk about it. But do it on another thread because this one is for "What I did today..."

Obtuse? Don't be all quoting "Shawshank" and getting all heavy... and I did post a "Today I..." response... I wrote that I had a very full GOOD DAY... now I didn't list specifics, as it is late and it was a full day, but the point was I had a Good day... What was dificult to understand about that? so suck it up and be happy that I had a good day.... and if you want the details I'll be happy to pm them to you...

Oh, and re my friendship with Jimmy goes I couldn't honestly say he's my BEST friend, but I'm glad to say he's a Good friend.
