  • Success! I was trying without the wheel in, was fairly comical with the bike sliding along the garage floor on the padock stand but eventually came good. Hella fun spanning was what I wanted, so far it's great. Plan is to make it mint (eventually) and do some choice upgrades along the way. Most parts on eBay are comically cheap so feels very accessible without breaking the bank.

  • Ooooooh, trade size! Something something man stuff.
    You going restomod or track whip? Get some more roller cabinets and a lathe going dude. Also, more updates.

  • Really I shouldn't have bought the SRAD when I did, my job was on the rocks but in a twist of fate they offered me a permanent contract a couple of days ago. Thankfully. With that sorted I'll continue to improve the garage, an epoxy floor feels like the sensible next step before it gets full. My local track is only 30mins away so the bike will probably be both restomod and track hack, the below video really turned me onto how capable these old bikes can be. Sure it's been tinkered with a lot in a shed but that's much more my style than buying something newer.
