    This last one shows how Don used a head tube bearing cup as a spacer because of the short head tube with
    long steer tube of the springer fork. Looks pretty good if you ask me!

    Hey Don,
    Just make sure that chain you have hanging from the seat doesn't get caught up in the spokes when you ride!

    Hey John,Little chance of the Zoot Chain getting hung up in the spoke rotation...I predict.

    Thanks for the pics Buddy-O

    You know what they say, "one mans trash is another mans treasure"! I was just glad to be able to clean up a little. If I kept all the bikes I got over the last 5 years I wouldn't be able to move around here. You're welcome Don.........

    Hey John,the flip top at the end of the Zoot Chain only 'pings' the spokes...sometimes.

    66,Thats one of my "Signature" styles.(feel free to use it)

    The only interesting reason to use dual rear calipers is to me, it "balances" out the bike.

    looking at the other bike I think it would be cool to see if you could combine the rest of the jack mechanizm to the shifter instead of the grenade pin.

    Nice and simple. Yet sophisticated. I like it.
