Some asshole let me use Photoshop again.
imma take an excessive amount of parking.
New fuel tank and fuel petcock check, chain adjusted, and we are ready for a road test! Looks like my problems all boiled down to fuel starvation from a shitty petcock and rusty as hell fuel tank. The new fuel tank is super shiny and awesome and also about .6 gallons larger than the old one which gives a bit of a…
So much wiggly and flexy
Smoothest driving car in the universe though it hasn’t like half a turn of dead zone and won’t reg past 3800rpm for some reason. I want one.
And this... well this is one of them.
The disconnect between what it looked like and what it sounded like was fantastic. Side note: my 1997 Buick Riviera had the same CD holder.
There’s just a bit of slop in this sway bar bushing. All of the slop, actually. The power steering high pressure line got a nice hole in it which jetted a nice stream of PS fluid right on the fan which slung it alllll over the underside of the car. $30 later a new line was in.
Did more bike stuff. I’m getting close to having this stupid thing working methinks.
IZZA THREE THIRTY FIVE EYE. Did a photoshoot today.
Accomplishments! Sort of. Got the battery charged, in a fashion. Good enough to kick the bike over and get it to start and run.

Off come the seats and the gas tank and boy howdy looks like this 2-occupant bike has quite a few more occupants than expected. Few taps with a mallet and…
Considering that the Mustang was a dirt-covered rain collector with a busted out window and dead battery sitting in a field with a forest growing through the engine bay, and that it’s built by me with parts from Craigslist and eBay, I’m stunning at how well the Mustang starts every day and shuttles me to and from…
Stubby rear fender, re-shaped seat, and dropped handlebars. I dig it a lot.
Trailered the Rebel over to my mom’s house last weekend. Going to strip the bugger down and rebuild it both less broken and in a brat style. Should be fun times. My reference:
Dunno if this’ll do anything but it makes me look like I’m a dedicated #racecar driver.
This was fun. The late evening light was fantastic. Full res and the rest of the set at http://jake.bickhard.net
It’s been a year this week since I got the NB. In that time I’ve put 16723 miles on it and done the following mods:
That article on the FP about loud exhausts is an absolute disaster. Link to context
