Well, the bell arrived yesterday.  Unfortunately, I wasnt home to accept it so UPS decided not to leave it at the door... wrote them a note to leave it with my neighbor today so we'll see.  Good news is that its bike-healing effects have already been felt by its arrival, without it even being on the bike!  All the little gremlins mucking up my carbs and tank were taken care of yesterday, so she's running stronger than ever now.  Dan's (AlmostVintage_GS) brakes suddenly stopped squeaking yesterday as well, which I'll chalk up to the bell!  Trying to get an itinerary for the next few weeks for where to take this thing...see what we come up with...

Good, glad to hear it made it... well, sorta made it.

Post up a pic once you get it on the bike  ;)

I just read the entire post - cool idea!
When it comes to the West Penn, we could do a little relay with it. I could hand it to VonYinzer, he could hand it to JFish, etc, etc. I would rather ride it out to another Tonner than mail it, know what I mean?

Yeah man!!  Ill take the bell for a little ride through a place I like to call... the hood!

Well, it's been an...I'll say - "interesting" - ride with the bell so far.  I'll save the details for the Gremlin notebook, so you'll have to read it to get the story.  However, I have been getting it around as much as possible.  Looking to keep it in Philly for another week or so and then its off to the next recipient.  Here a few shots of its journey thus far:

Placement:


First hundred miles on the bike since the rebuild:


Ride through Fairmount park with a stop at the Civil War Memorial.  Also the site of the first Worlds Fair in the United States.  Here's some info - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Exposition
Some amazing monuments and sculptures:






So who's up next?  PM me if you're interested!

Very cool man, very cool indeed. Looks like you've got some cool urban scenery around your way too.

Cheers for sharing - boingk

I think its me...but don't wait around if there are more local guys who want it. I've hit a pothole with the 850 and probably won't have it on the road until our spring/summer in what, 4 months?
