so we got someplace else's weather last weekend = winter storm with heavy rain & high winds. actually very nice, i like some weather. also a good time to be garaging. got this far w/ bike. gonna stick with my original idea - cafe style bike. very similar to bigjon's, but his is on a whole different planet. i even had a set of triple clamp forks lined up, but decided to go another direction. am having a lot of fun on my first build, this could get habit-forming. got a few more ideas brewing :idea: . can't wait for a nice weekend day and take er for a spin. supposed to rain again this weekend. guess i'll get some more done 8) .
been pretty slow @ work this week, so time for other stuff. was gonna throw away this broken pump, but thought it might be useful for something.
picked up this rack, not sure if it will stay.
came home early again today :| so i spent some more time on bike and took it to the lake for first test ride. rode really nice except that i didn't get headset properly adjusted, it was very loose :shock: . maybe there is a thread here on that topic.... i do see a multi-speed hub in the future, with the smaller rear sprocket on wheelset, slight grade could use lower gearing. having lots of fun on my first build, even though it's pretty simple, and fired up on future projects.
this may be final version. had to change "motorcycle style" kickstand to another. didn't work with this frame. too bad.
