With the day off I went to the shed to dig out TheDog and
it greeted me with a flat , blue engine smoke and yet another leaking axle seal. Tires have been fine for almost two years and the axle seal was just replaced and even tryed a new axle housing on that side. Not what I was hoping for today. Who says there just machines.

Ahh yes the stack cover.It probably would have preferred a beer can but am fresh out.
I liked it quiet but the stack matches the wide tires and gives it an attitude I like better.
This Elfian Dude said he didn't like the seat I had on it so to appease my friend today it's finally been switched. The shock is still there but will need to get a new steel seat piece for that.

No tri-ribs. I did call down and order a set today. The Deestones like the 208 has on the front it . Thought they'd match the rear tires better. I may be bringing them down to get mounted anyway after I paint the inside of the rims. The little ones are a religion tester to get on the rims and don't want to bust em all back up after I sand and prime them.
The seat shock is from a junk bicycle my brother was scrapping.
I'm not quit fat enough yet to compress it!!!

I do everything but the little 4.80 rims they are just a bit tougher and I will prime the entire rim , paint the inside then have them mount but not blow up the tires so I can paint the outside of the rims.
Keeping you on your toes Kyle . Anybody can do it the easy way!!

Well my coffee cup was empty so went to visit Kyle 2 and his family at my favorite man store and decided to go Tri-Rib on the front tires. Not sure how it'll look but either way it'll be better.
Now to dismount the old worn out tires and start restoring the rims.
Still having ideas about doing something completely different with this one. Need to find taller back wheels with the same lug pattern first.
Any ideas on which ones may interchange on a budget?

I did not empty the pot I took only a little before you and your pop refilled. I am not the one. This time!!!
You can check them out at Pikeville Equipment if I may say that.
Just a hop,skip and one large jump from my homestead. They have been the source for my restoration guidance , parts and tires since I've lived here in the valley ,oh and free coffee if there is any left.

Got the wheels sanded down and primed. The were not real bad although one of the rims had the inner tube stuck to the rim.
Thought I had gray primer but only had enough red oxide to do both rims. Guess I should have checked before I started.
Funny now the tire that was flat is fine after I brought the Dog back to the garage.
