i have an old standard battery that's f-ed up but its only a year old. i can drain it and you can take the acid.

Any help appreciated.
Few batteries come with acid when ordering online...unless it specifically says so.

Good news is you can buy electrolite at any auto parts store, they even have smaller packs for motorcycles. Will cost about $10

When I helped a Canadian with his bike last summer we went to 125th street in da city and purchased a battery that came with the electrolyte pack.

Also, just bought a new Odyssey and no need for acid...

If anyone is wanting a motobatt battery I have a credit through them for 3 batteries. George just got one from me.

Some dipshit decided to pack 4 of them in one box and shipped em to me that way a while back, surprise, all of em were broken. Didn't have time to have them resend em so I bought 4 batteries locally and sent the motobatts back.

Anyway, have a credit for 3 left. I'll save one for myself after the winter.

Hey guys, anyone know where I could get precut to my specs, finished lumber?

I'm wanting to put together a storage bed frame and the ones I looked at are awfully expensive and I do not want a piece of ikea crap. I have a great idea in my head that I would like, just need the wood.

Thanks for the offer dude very cool. I called Autozone and they have the battery acid for cheap.

Thanks for help guys, I've never really dealt with the pour your own liquid batteries before.

So it seems some Brooklyn blog/shop took a picture of my bike on the way to the shop:

Hey fellow NYFFers,

Help me win.

Read ther thread here. Or click this link here. Look for "Matt P. NYC, NY" and click "vote."

You don't have to watch the videos, just click vote. Do it today, tomorrow, and every day until February 15.

If I win this round, I go to La Jolla, CA and compete in the finals. If I win there, I get a free trip to a coffee growing country.

Also, if you want to try my drink, go to the Whole Foods on E57th between 2nd & 3rd Aves, go upstairs to the coffee bar and look for the guy with the moustache.

Thanks.

Vote early & vote often.
