Thanks man. I pulled the banana seat off a while back. Cracked the bottom bracket too so I gotta get my welder out. But I love the way the ALiEN rides. The geometry is good it cruises nice and has 5 gears so it'll do hills and outrun dogs. I've been working on extra lighting for it, now it has the tube lighting in the rear wheel in red. I'm probably going to get a red tire and and LED valve stem for the front. It already has funky LED tail lighting and the plasma ball headlight. The Chicago TailDraggers do a winter Zoo ride and I'm hoping I'll have it rolling and lit up by then...my battery pack was in the headrest...Dig the new look on Alien Fire. This bike is cool too. Always love looking at your bikes.
I've welded a coin on top of the steer tube nut, but why haven't I ever thought to just put it inside!? Simple, and looks clean. I suspect I overthink things sometimes. Just because I can weld, doesn't mean it's always the best solution.Cut down the fork. Couldn't deal with the spacer on top. What to do with the hole? Solved with the classic solution.
Yup, I’ve got an axle mounted Jiffy that’s going on my never ending build......Got a kick stand installed. I hate laying bikes down or flipping them over or leaning them on things...
So when you build a one off with mismatched wheels and a highboy stance you need an axle mounted kicker.
