Should have guessed that from the size of the shorts. Don't sit back.

 

The reclining on the sissy bar position WITH SHORTS is supported by 4 out of 5 unlicensed chiropractors who recommend it for middle aged men trying to recapture their preadolecence. Seriously Mike, they wouldn't stand behind it if it wasn't safe. 

 

 

Bend it back stronger... You're killing me smalls.

Hipster is a pronoun but a sexual identity?

 

Hipster is sort of a cross between a lumberjack and a steam punk dude. 

 

Not so much a sexual identity, but I always wonder...

hipsters_who_take_their_identity_very_se

Who would have thought a pair of shiny, rainbow, hot-pant, Daisy Duke shorts would derail a thread this badly?🤣

I correct speeling in the title so the Google search function will work. A post about breaks isn't going to help much and it looks like unprofessional crap. Spelling/punctuation in the text you're on your own to make yourself look good.

Today I finally put the grips on!  First, a little heat gun action

Then I wrestled them on.

Then, I sized up the new purple chain to the old one

IMG_20221123_161029807.thumb.jpg.e9aaf5290ae0b1cf44dff3ccbac5e5c2.jpg

 

and installed it

And had John install the coaster brake bracket so if the paint got scratched, it would be the painter who scratched it!

And while the Crown Royal bag protected the top of the sissy bar, an old yoga mat protected the handlebars while we had the thing upside down... in case you were wondering.

I was thinking about a "Skid Lid" for when I ride this thing.  I wanted a Stahlhelm because chopper, but they are apparently super heavy.

 

Then I remembered buying a vintage Russian tank driver's helmet for driving the Seven in cold weather.  Thinking about dyeing it purple.

Ok, we're getting there!  Today I installed a boing-boing springy seat post,

John shot some video of me riding it that he will hopefully post for y'all, or you can hop over to my Instant Grams to see the absolute CRAP video I took of my first ride.
