yeah, well, 2 kids under 5, wife and I both work, wife in school or on a night shift, it's been a busy couple of years. most of the time I can really only work on the bike after everyone else is in bed, and neighbors don't take kindly to the angle grinder running at 2AM.
I guess it helps I finally came to the realization that "the bike will never be done". so, I'm just putting the fucking thing on the road as is.
I broke one of my new turnsignals last night putting them on, cheap fucking potmetal. so, I just put the old signals on the back on shortened mounts. really, I just want to ride.
