    Hey! The postman actually DID ring twice, but we didn't connect so the chainguard is waiting at the post office on Monday!

    The Delta light shell and improvised cap are painted and clear coated. I will go to the Ford dealer's body shop for some help with the chainguard and I should have more photos to post within a day or two. I am finding graphics for the Flyer also.

    I did something to a copy of the blue badge I had and viola! It looks like a woven patch!

    Stylin' and Profilin'-Kayleigh gets her baubles installed/more work in prog pix...


    Paperboys are on, including a wireguide for the taillights and signals, pics of the improvised Delta light bezel in progress ('500' series desk telephone mic cap, believe it or don't) and the MR-11 lamp for it's 12V light source!

    * Alternate is an LED 194

    Clearcoat is on, second and third coats likely, lens not actually installed (for demonstration purposes).

    NEXT: Preparing for Tempest's build, the early years (D'OH!)

    And we now have a frame awaiting clearcoating...

    My chainguard is at the Ford dealer's body shop being prepped and should be back in a few days. I have no bracket however and am looking to you folks, among others, for the parts. I have some stuff for now but I would like to find the parts. As I've said before, the chainguard simply ties the bike together and that is why I kept looking for the one I have.

    A wonderful documentation thread! Now the question--what are you going to do when you finish?

    But it's only approximately 683 miles!

    And the route is as flat as a pancake .

    I just learned one of us passed on a few days ago.

    My first ride on Tempest will be dedicated to TCR.

    I'm not sure I really know TCR but for all the times I thought my dream was gone I felt it was a good tribute.

    ROLL FAST, TCR. The wind is forever at your back.

    I've located Germaine, my Schwinn and am trying to get her back!

    Nothing was changed as far as I could see...the combo lock chain is still on it.

    I can't say a lot right now.

    At sometime past 11 pm the police called and said apparently the man I encountered had kept his word yet had just left it there. Perhaps he was more concerned about his current status with Corrections than anything else. I will travel to City Hall today to identify it and retrieve it.

    Germaine is coming home. To Sianelle and others who held me in their thoughts, I thank you

    Wow.

    Congratulations on finding her!

    Here are some pictures of Germaine's return...

    She was basically the way she was when taken. the seat cover is shot but it was approaching that already in October when taken away.

    OH! Free bungie!

    EDIT: Yes, I see the front wheel and will check it out. I didn't have any trouble pedaling it.
