Thanks Jay, I'll take you up on this. It's a 1/2 inch bead on a rear directional tube from a Bravo. Steel. Dude wanted 25 bucks to do it. I told him I could buy a 10' length of tubing, bend it, cut it and drill two holes in if for 9 bucks. He told me go fetch. Grrrr We'll hook up some time soon.
I want to introduce a new recruit, Anton. Good guy, goes to that school in Cambridge with all the ivy on it. He bought the Vespa from my physical therapist and I'm hooking it up for him. Nice machine but not very fast 25MPH is the most I can get from it right now, maybe you'll have some suggestions for him when you meet him and see the bike. It sat for a solid 25 years without being moved. Lots of carb cleaner, lots of witch piss, it now runs as smooth as a sewing machine.
Hey, you get that silencer back on the Honda? Man that thing was LOUD that day we went out. It's supposed to be crappy this weekend and I think I had 'permission' to take off with you guys and ride for a day.
