Afterward I took the rear wheel off, and Steve put another tire on it. He had a Shinko 705 that he only had a couple of thousand miles on. The Heidenau unfortunately did not last as long as I had hoped. It was a great tire though!
I still had a couple of new brake pads that Jim had given me in Idaho, and decided to put them on seeing as one of the pads fell off as we took the caliper of the disc. Good thing I decided to, because I was on bare metal on the other pad!!!
Steve also put the chain back on for me. I was glad, believe it or not, I was physically and emotionally drained from working on Spirit these last few days. I just didn't have any oomph any more
Today I just have to tension the chain, align the rear wheel, put the seat and other small things back on , and take her for a test ride into town.
Steve and his family are at the Liberty fair today, so let's see if I can manage not to get lost again.
Thanks for sharing my life!
