Got these sweet trackers off of the bay for cheap n cut 2" off each side today. They were almost too narrow in the mounting area to fit. The grips are boring ol true blue n not some awesome green color like the cell phone pictures suggests. I thought they were more of a teal color when I ordered em. Oh well.

The tank was hammered out by Thor and made from the melted down spikes n studs from Venom's codpieces and various other BDSM related lounge ware. Respect. Then delivered by the man himself upon his mighty goat-drawn chariot of fire right to my house. True story.

This week I got a 16" mag from a '79 CB750 comin in so that pizza cutter in the back will be in the pile of shit i don't need.

Then by the end of March a hardtail will be forced upon this bitch.

Stay evil. Have fun. Fuck the haters. Smoke weed. Burn churches. Listen to Black Sabbath. Watch Sanford & Son. Eat pizza.

Just some randoms. They have a 3" rise n are stamped GL1 between the knurls. No clue what that means or what they were from, but I sure like em.

My wheel came in today. Dirty as hell. Next week I'll give Home Depot more money n get a real drill so I can clean n polish it, the front wheel, motor, n fork lowers that were shaved when I bought the bike, but need to be finished.

Got one of these one the way that I got for $76.99 on Amazon w/ free shipping.

About that wheel, though. Do I need to change out the chain ring on it cause it's quite a bit bigger than the 450 one?

as long as its the same chain type it should be fine, the bigger the rear sprocket the more lowend power u will have

Thanks!

And someone mentioned elsewhere that I could have problems with alignment of spockets. We'll see how ithat goes.

u very well could but i doubt its going to be drastic, the hub looks to be rather small still.
but u can get offset front sprockets or get balsy and make a small shim if its not much,

throw a straight edge on the front sprocket to the rear. a small string will work, the string wont be touching all the way across one of the sprockets and if will tell u which way u go. w/ chain ive ran quite abit offset without an offset pulley, u get unwanted chain wear alittle faster than u would normally.
