All is true

Just a quick update this time and no pictures, sorry.

It's been 105+ for about two weeks now, which has made it far to hot in the garage to do any meaningful work on the cubbie. I did manage to spend enough time this morning out there to finish truing the wheels. I need to get the brakes relined and assembled and shod the rims with rubber to get to 100%. I hope to order the brake lining material and tires today. Thankfully, it's not too hot to shop on-line.

I've been trolling e-bay for some miscellaneous pits and pieces. I missed a steering head lock by about 13 bucks last weekend. I've started setting my max bid then forgetting about the auction until it's over so I don't get caught up in the last minute price escalations. That's working so far but I do miss out on some parts because I'm cheap. The steering lock went for about $40. The only other options I've seen out there are over $100. I don't really need the lock as I don't plan to commute on the bike or leave it out where someone is likely to ride it away.

Anyway, I hope to have more done and more pictures soon. I may have to start sleeping during the day and working at night.
