    Splinter removal

    Brings back memories of when riding bike thru Texas woods, I got a thorn in the scalp and it broke off, leaving the tip pretty deep. Wife couldn’t get it, Care-now couldn’t get it for $30. Two days later, that thing popped out under some pressure. Crazy what the body can do.

    The handlebars look like something pulled off a kids bike. Those gotta go.... Otherwise, I’d ride it.

    Phantom Menace (aka, the Layoff Special II)

    Re-lace! Don’t replace. it’s a journey, not a race. start saving money, just in case.

    How do you deal with the big fat tires

    I would go with V brakes cuz you are halfway there and said that you could braze. However I don’t have experience with a motorized build so don’t know about stopping power needed there.

    Rusted chain salvage.

    Don’t use vinegar!! Even though horsefarmer says he has had good results- Don’t do it!!! It only took my 1” pitch chain 12 hrs to completely fall apart in vinegar. it was perfectly functional too- just a little rusty.

    Repair or Trash SUMO Bike Rim

    I’ve done both-cleaned up old spokes and bought new. Effort-I’d buy new. Original Equipment value-there’s little in my opinion, I’d buy new. Take this opportunity and get some different color nipples while u r at it.
