Four more airheads getting’ wrenched on the driveway, as well as a bunch of hangers on offering the usual plethora of advice, solicited or otherwise. Still early in the day, maybe we can beat the record of thirteen airheads being wrenched at once at Kevin’s North Florida Airhead Tech Day?
Low 50s kinda chilly (by Flatistan standards), so we haven’t opened the big shop door yet. But it’s warm and giggawatts light inside, and we’re working on a couple bikes besides BSing and getting properly caffeinated and pancaked. And to further the upbeat trend, looks like we solved the GS/PD pinion nut problem discussed on the Airlist last night. Looks like the start of another awesome airhead day!
We took a break for pizza, what self respecting airhead can resist the challenge of an reluctant final drive that refuses to be reassembled? So we soldier on, inventing new and devious ways to get a threaded ring to actually thread.
Having recovered from last night’s margaritas and Mexican fare, we’re sobering up with scrambled eggs, pastries, and coffee. And the shop is… Almost empty of airheads. Havin’ fixed near everything we started yesterday, all that’s left is a spline lube and the prolonged rebuild of a /2 transmission. We’re at risk of boredom, and bored airheads are a dangerous thing. So airheads of Flatistan, “bring out your dead”!
