    Re: Winter Projects - what's on the agenda?

    I dunno...prob ride down to the beach





    seriously though
    1.) flush/fill radiator on YZ...get rear shock re-valved/sprung...get new bars & have seat recovered...get frustrated over the cost...
    2.) truck: backup camera, subwoofer, harley davidson bumper, shocks/upper control arms/alignment, folding bed cover...very mad at the cost
    3.) properties: scream in terror over what needs to get done, and get terrified over the cost
    4.) panic that I don't have enough $$

    yeah, I'd rather not think about it...going back to ride down to the beach...

    Oh, I also had my water meter changed and a new transponder installed. They had been estimating the bill for the last three years, but say they estimated low and the difference leaves me owing them $4500.
    Sorry, lots of suckage. Hope it doesn't stop you from making the grid in '17.

    Thanks. There's no way I'm giving them $4500 for two years of water use without a fight, so hopefully that gets chiseled down.
    As far as replacing the service goes, it looks like i can probably buy the materials from my work, borrow the tools, and zip the new line in myself. We'll see.

    Continue working on house and barn.

    I got dominion over an upstairs bedroom and moved my stereo and boxes of hobby/toy stuff in; now I need to organize/setup/unpack/make my own space comfortable.

    Bike-related:
    Somehow retrieve my bike from Columbus, OH.
    Once retrieved, it needs piston rings. I replaced the originals at 122K; the second set now has 138K on them, and she's burning some oil.
    My wife's M900 needs adjustable levers, better mirrors, a couple of ergonomic things that will make it easier for her to ride, so she'll ride more often.

    We already have a smaller one in the garage (takes the spot where I used to get to park). This new one is a full size 70x12x14 going in at the office.

    Do share! I had 2 ZX7R's and the Muzzy (RR) was one of those cool versions that I would've liked to own.

    Yeah, going fast is fun.
    And keeping your scoot pointed downrange is key to that.

    Re: Winter Projects - what's on the agenda?

    main project is getting my 300 back in one piece.
    if that goes smoothly and time (and money) allows, get my wifes YSR50 back together
    and lastly, if both of those get done, then get my pitbike running and possibly my go-ped too.

    i think ill be lucky to get the 300 complete.

    Re: Winter Projects - what's on the agenda?

    Geez. Where do I begin?

    • Put the KTM 300 EXC back together. Install new wiring harness, reinstall stock headlight, install new front disc cover, bleed brakes. Should probably remove suspension and have it revalved and serviced.
    • Honda CRF 250R definitely needs a suspension revalve & service. And maybe a new spark plug, but other than that it's pretty good.
    • Get the VFR ready to sell. Need to clean up some of the bodywork, probably remove the Ohlins shock, new spark plugs and wires.
    • Clean the fucking garage.

    I'm pleased to say that I'm going to spin class a lot so my fitness is on the up and up. I could definitely afford to shed some pounds but I'm pleasantly surprised with how my cardio endurance has gone up...

    And, oh yeah, I need to sell the El Camino.

    It's a '69 in midnight (metallic) purple. The original color was probably sky blue.

    It has a 383 stroker that I built last year (with receipts!) with Vortex heads and a bunch of other stuff. It needs new floor pans, which I need to weld in. I've also got a couple thousand bucks worth of new parts for the thing...

    - Finish building a gravel bike for Rasputitsa in April.
    - Update the drivetrain on the Remedy 8 with SRAM 11 speed.
    - Shine and sell SV650 race bike, all spares, and all equipment.
    - Wire and plumb dust collection system for woodworking area.
    - Install and wire recessed lights, ceiling fan and crown molding in the master bedroom.
    - Source two additional bee hives and order additional colonies.

    That's enough for now.

    I'm pretty much in the UK full time now so getting bikes like that are easy. They don't value old bikes like that like we would. Mint zx7rr bikes are only 4 or 5 grand with a couple thousand miles. Trashed ones are about a grand. They are old enough now that I can import them back to the states with me without too much trouble.
    I'm also considering a couple bimota's. Low mileage ones are less than 6k here, as low as 4k if you look hard enough.

    That thing is cool...if you aren't already aware, lucky6600 (Ching) over on band of riders is a pretty knowledgable dude about these and has many, many posts and pics about those type of restorations, so check him out if you need any help with sourcing parts or general info.
