Are those the same bikes I remember, Kev? With plastic f ueltanks, looking like genuine motocross flips?
I'm now cleaning an old set of wheels, chrome is a quite stained and the bearings are really dirty.
Today I polished the rims, cleaned the coaster brake thoroughly and put everything back together. The wheels are pretty okay, they're not totally straight, have to do some work there. I never took a coaster brake apart before, but it was a piece of cake ; )
Took the wheels to a collegue this morning, he straightened them out. I've done that once, but it wasn't a big succes, he's got more experience... Thanks, Ronald!
Then I had to put tires on them (probably gonna buy some slicks) and check the bike out. Then I got exited : )
So then I had to put on some handlebars, and I went for my initial idea of using cruiser-style handlebars. These were very very wide, I cut of about 6" on both sides. I'm happy so far.
I put on the high sissybar, but I think it really needs a low one. We'll see : )
Did some more bearing cleaning today (we're running out of used toothbrushes!), went bike-shopping and bought a crankset and a chain, both alloi-grey, nice combo. They didn't have the chrome seatpost I wanted, (just a simple 25,4 mm) but it's supposed to be there tomorrow.
Ofcourse I put the stuff on my bike immediately, but it's hardly rideable without a seat : )
I'm thinking about not doing the Saab-logo's on the tank, so the name doesn't make any sence. Bought two Thrasher-logo (with flames) stickers of eBay, hope they're here in time!
