Interesting how I never considered how I was going to do an oil change on this thing. Now that I have a few miles on it, I wanted to dump the initial high detergent oil and put in something more permanent. The oil looked good, so I’m confident she’s gonna be a good runner with no issues foreseeable. Had to get a little creative to change the fluids though!

I’ve been riding the crap out of this bike and I love it. It’s a lot like a bicycle as it’s so light and narrow. I swung through the scrap metal place today and had it weighed. With a half a tank of gas it’s 268lbs. Crazy lightweight. While I was out riding I had the DSLR in my backpack and snapped some good quality photos. When I got home my pinstriping paint came in so I added a few flourishes to the headlight. The paint matched perfectly and I’m resisting the urge to pinstripe everything .









Here’s a few shots from today:

Thanks Jimbo! It’s something I’ve never built before and out of my normal wheelhouse but the “anything goes” nature of it has made it a blast to build and ride!
