    With all the things going on, I've done very little with the bike. School starts tomorrow, but game 7 of the Series is on at 8am here. Playing hookey on the first day, nothing gets done on the first day anyway.
    Then getting ready for a possible move to Hawaii, lots to do and coordinate.
    But I did epoxy the panels in, although they fit tight without anything. A little smoothing and sanding and it's ready for paint. Maybe not have flames, just decals.
    Also got the band brake and cog on the rear wheel.

    That rear wheel looks tough with those fat spokes and the tractor tread!

    Shiny gassers are cool... But I prefer ones where all money goes into the drive line, that's why we're so many odd ball bodied gassers, they wanted short wheelbase and dirt cheap...
    Glad see you had some time to work on it with everything else you're getting done

    It's always a good day to paint something in the Philippines!

    The paint seemed dry enough, so the decals went on.

    First, I get invited on a sailing regatta recently and wind up as crew on the winning yacht! Then I somehow land on the dean's list at college! And now, on my birthday today, my team is playing in the World Series. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, my bike is on the RRB highlight thread! Can't do any better than that!

    Maybe drive a gasser down the quarter mile, that might be better!

    Was an amazing game though, easily the best series I've seen. Not to mention finally having two teams that actually deserved to be there.

    It went right down to the wire, a great series.

    I wasn't supposed to spend another penny, but I had no stem that would work, so I picked up a cheap 100 peso one over the good high priced 350 peso GT stem (had to be a knockoff). 100 pesos is about 2 dollars. And the red matches.
    But nowhere can I find the lockwasher for the spindle, so I will attempt to make one. After I put everything else together.

    I put most of it together to take a look. I think the handlebar ends are too long and could have 4 inches cut off each end. Or maybe they're ok like that.

    I like the long extensions on the handlebars....looks like they are pulling the bike back and up; which is how the front end of a gasser should be! Also really like the stickers and tire combo. You really transformed this from it's previous life!
