Title: No longer parts bike.
Post by: Danger4u2 on November 23, 2018, 10:34:48 AM
It's official it's no longer called a parts bike.  Back in '07 or so, I bought 2 running K5's for parts bikes.
Then a year ago or maybe 2 umberto had and issue with one of his bikes. We kind of thought it might be a carburetor problem so I suggest that he should come over to the shop, we'll pull the carb off the parts bike
for a test run.  When he saw my parts bike he said "Man that's as nice as my bike."  It was a carb problem.  
Put the carb back on the parts bike and started riding it.  When I go riding someone always says "What are you riding?"  And I say the parts bike.  
No more....  I got in the goodie box today and it's no longer called the "Parts Bike".


Edit: Hammer on the floor...for working on the Honda.

I installed the AVA clutch perch, Pro Moto Billet kick stand, oil fill plug and replaced the broken exhaust pipe mount.  The number plate gas tank is an issue because of the brake line needing to move up and down with the
forks.  I'll have to build it out some how.  My friend Gene picked me up Saturday to go to Crosstimbers riding area. 70 degrees, killer riding weather.  Had a good time.  We did the Red Trail, then came back to camp for some turkey sandwiches.  Then headed out for the Green Trail where Gene found the big mud puddle I managed to miss.

Did you fix that stripped bolt on your side panel so you can return somebodyís thread repair kit?   :-D

Also, Iíve been in that d**ned mud hole. The last time we went riding with my cousin.

That's the interior of the world famous bus.  It's like a rolling garage/lounge/kitchen/rest stop.  It's a great thing to have on a long day of riding.
