I didn't put my eye out.

Well....I got to thinking and came up with a woodchuck engineering solution to the spring compressor situation:

The Black and Decker Workmate may be the most useful tool to ever have been offered to the general public.

I took my automotive spring compressor apart and mounted it on the Workmate like so.



It worked.... Now to step two.


Step two also worked!


Now to put the thing back together:


Changed the fork oil too! Wow!!!! I don't think it has been changed out in years. The rear shock and fork seals are all in great shape still. It will be fun to see if it is "plush and planted".

Thanks everyone. TDC V will have a moment of silence followed by a long Motzification session.

Nice job Kenny!

May Motzie rest in peace. Hope he is riding endless curves on deserted roads.

Calling for some rain showers late tonight and early tomorrow.

The afternoon is looking warm and dry(but windy)

Who's going for flapjacks?
