Didn't realize you made this bike in the BO!Been riding Dumpster Diamond around the neighborhood a bit this past week. Still feel some sort of intermittent resistance/grinding when I pedal... I'd take it apart and figure it out, but the weather's been too good not to go for a ride. I just wish I could get this bike to leave a skidmark when I slam on the coaster brake! Still, every time I tried that, the coaster brake proved to be effective at coming to a nice quick stop, so there's that.

Sorry I don't have a new picture to share of D.D., I'll try and remedy that at some point.
Like them a lot. I don't get too far into the woods with this bike, and these tires handle packed dirt and a little gravel just fine. They're great on pavement too. I run them up to 60-65 psi and they roll out pretty well... definitely a ton better than the cheap cruiser tires I run on a lot of my junkers.Nice! I've been thinking about a pair of those Michelin County Rock. How do you like them?
If I could only have one Mustang in my life, it'd have to be a '69 fastback. I don't care much about what engine or trim package it is (although a Boss 429 would be sweet,) I just want that body style.OT on Mustangs.In 71 I owned a 69 Mach 1. 428 Cobra Jet engine 750 CFM Holley with a shaker hood scoop. You punched it and the flap in the scoop opened by vacuum and the air was forced into the card. It was all factory. A Viet Nam vet had saved all his combat pay to buy it. He had lost his construction job and told Dad he couldn't make his payments. We owned the finance company and Dad told him to just make what he could because he would find another job. He wouldn't have any of it and turned the car back in to us. Dad let me have the car as I was his new business partner. But it was a business and a guy came along selling the then new personal watercraft. He wanted to tow it behind the Mach 1. We sold it and recovered out loss and I lost the car. But I only minded a bit as it was business. It saved our bacon on that car. I do still miss that car. Be Well, SS.
