More rear fender pics...OK only one but thought you all would appreciate the stamp on the back.
Note that the "factory" rear fender on my AMERICAN made bike is sourced from a vendor in Italy for an Austrian brand machine

TIRE TIME!
I can't believe I am finally at the tire stage!!

When Nemo was over she pulled the wheels while I made sammiches.
Picture if you will, one ThumperX covered in engine oil (clean hands though) working the grill.

The poor bike even more naked.


I know, the shop is a mess
We haven't quite put ourselves back in order since our last job. Those are two stroke pumps in the background. Ferocious things they are.

Going back to the bikes unfortunate state when it was discovered (laying on its side with the canal water lapping its front wheel) I had certain concerns regarding the condition of the beautiful DID wheels.
The rim locks had bonded to the wheel :|


The front wheel bore the worst of the abuse



Hopefullythe wire wheel and new clear coat will save it for a season. In the meantime I have my eyes open for a set of wheels.

I've never done the Sheetiron, and I really want to do it before my body finishes going completely to hell.

Oh, I love the fender pic, but the one you just posted with the bike on the lift, sans wheels is GLORIOUS. That is a sexy, sexy beast.

Let me know if you need more help Monday, G. This project is exciting. Oof, that front wheel looks bad, but the corrosion will buff right out, I'm sure.

I'm out for the Sheetiron this year, but someday, dang it, we should do it together.

Meanwhile, here's one we should aim for sometime--the San Luis Obispo teeter-totter dualsport! (Makes my knees shake just to watch, honestly)

I was thinking the same. I think that Beastie and I have a date in the desert to learn one another and not with a towel taped to the frame either

I can actually feel that teeter totter and I'm not scared. Surfing waves in a 22 ton boat gives you a lot of training for that

The auto parts stores are carrying special paints meant for plastics these days. You might be able to put a couple coats of white on that fender and improve it's appearance.
