Managed some work on the bike over the three day weekend.
Ran the brake cable,
Installed the bottom bracket, chain and rear brake strap,
Touched up the paint, and took it for a test ride.
Well the headset is screwy and needs to be rebuilt, and there is a couple of other plans to try, but I am liking what I have so far...
Wow, I really like the texture! I may "borrow" this idea as well but with a clear chip guard spray... this would allow me to pick a color I want but still have that rough appearance. I'm still debating repainting mine at all but this adds another "pro" to the repaint side of the argument!
Well I reassembled the front brake, made a new strap for the rear and rehung the front wheel. Much better!
Forget going over obstacles, with this fork I can go through them!
Actually, I'll have to, it is too heavy for me to loft...
