It may be me, but that new chain looks kind 'a tight.
But, this thing's an ornament now, so I guess it doesn't really matter.
Cheers, Brian

It'll loosen up when he puts the upper roller back in

Great job BackRoader!

I double checked the chain and it's perfect... I think you guys have never seen a new chain.!!!!

New chain??? Never heard of such a thing!

My winter project's a bit different...it's made of scrap wood. If I get some time...ya like I'm really busy here...I'll post a few photos. Probably won't interest most or all of you anyway

Keep up the good work BackRoader. Can't wait to try...I mean see the finished product!

Looks fantastic so far Greg! Two-strokes have tons of character.

What the....

hell Rain/freezing rain...what's going on? Either winter or not winter...guess it's not that simple We're stuck in the middle, can't ride due to freezing rain and can't sled due to not enough snow anybody want to buy a sled?

Man I wish I didn't live here...gotta start more!

Least I have the Supercross on Saturday to look forward too...should be a good one!

Hey Rob,

Looks like you may be getting some snow in a day or so. The storm is just getting going here and sounds like it will dump a fair bit here with strong winds.
The 'in between' seasons would be good to do bike or sled maintenance. (if you have a warm place to work) I don't have such a place yet.

Greg, it looks like the bike is coming along nicely.
Will be good to see it up and running.

Minne Bike Show

Is anyone still going to brave the elements to go check out the bike show this weekend?
I was planning to make my way down there tomorrow a.m. But now I am on the fence, it rained all night in Fort, and is going to rain through the day, and turn to snow tonight
It will be a game time decision

Hey 2whlrider, I'm kinda in the same boat. Have a place to work on them but not heated and no money to spend right now anyway...just sit and stare out the window for another 3 months
