Here are photos of the bike - almost done and trailer - just getting started. Forrest is making good progress on painting the saddlebags and I am waiting on a few parts (like locks for the saddlebags) from Owens Cycles, but it is on the road again. I've missed riding.
The new white two-by running down the middle of the trailer will help support the weight of the rear of the bike. The piece of 3/4" plywood that used to cover that portion of the floor got busted up pretty bad. I think I can straighten the two damaged steel ribs in the sides of the trailer and the sheet metal will get patched. I also bought a floor anchor system (the stuff on the right in the trailer) to help ensure that this doesn't happen again.
I am enjoying my stay in Thorp. My brother has a few projects planned for me to work on in my spare time.
Dave, Pat, Rob, and Steve are riding over to visit on Saturday. I'll throw some steaks on the barby and beer in the ice chest. We'll talk about our upcoming ride around Idaho - the Spud Run.
The floor is bolted down and the first coat of paint is on.
Second coat of paint is applied.
E-track is in place, chock is repaired and remounted, pushing on the bent ribs.
