    I bought two of these many months ago from Ruff, thinking I'd find a use for them. I'm gonna tuck one under the back of the seat.

    Installed the taillight, after removing the visor. Now it reminds me of a '56 Chevy.

    For those who actually have followed my build, remember the early '50s Monark that gave up the wheelset, tires, bars and fork for my Kristmas Krate? I found a brass fuel tank made to fit the ol' Monark, and built a motor bike around that tank and frame. I finished it today. Here it is, complete with Monark-style fork, front disc brake, rear V-brake, mags, tuned exhaust and CNC plates over the engine:

    Cool ride~! It has kind of steampunk meets 20th Century look. So, are the CNC'd plates over the engine made specifically for that engine, or is it a kit that generally fits a range of these small engines? That's a really cool finishing touch, SD!

    They are made just for the two-stroke generic Chinese bike motors. They even have them in colored "anodized" finishes. There's a whole world of custom and hi-po parts for these kits.

    I recently acquired a set of parade bars. There were four amber colored jewel reflectors on them. I borrowed two to replace the more modern green ones I had on the rear dropouts.

    They have a super solid metal backing. They don't make 'em like these any more.

    I like the colors, but the theme is a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce!
