    And so it does...

    I was nervously happy to hear that Gary had not only welded the bike back together but INDEED had added reinforcement to the frame although I'm not certain as to what it looks like yet (I suspect that the part that broke had bars/filling done at the least as I had talked to him and mentioned it specifically.

    It is buffed down and primered and ready for painting if the paint shop owner is satisfied and it's coming home partly assembled and will be stripped down again to be finished, but for the fairing and the saddlebags (awaiting repair to one that lost the lid in a clean break--thank goodness).

    It will be a happy but strange heart that waits anxiously for it's arrival, like waiting for a brother that lost a leg in war and you love him always but you aren't used to dealing with the new physical reality that is settling in. Uncertainty and the hope you can just go on and not be unsure again.

    I realize I was a bit late getting back today but then again it is only past ELEVEN in the Pacific timezone and West so...

    There it is.

    I think it's solid again.

    ME? Not as solid. But that's why I ride, to get up Hospital Hill without needing to visit.

    The painting goes down this weekend.

    I went snow biking tonight, mainly from necessity to ge to the auction and see if there was any computer related parts, memory, any hard drives but I also had to keep up on news of my old GF who slipped and I though she had received a concussion from her talking and mannerisms on the phone so I had to get somebody to have her checked out while across town. She had a big knot on her head but No concussion thank goodness and some muscle strains. She told me a while ago they gave her pain medicine a shot and when she got off the table alll her joints just straighten out and she popped into shape again!

    She's getting a good nap and I'm getting a great ride. It gets paint this weekend!

    Went up Hospital Hill in one burst from a stop this time, a bit winded but I'm here and the bike makes nary a fuss. Get set for a paint job!

    Good. It'll be gone for the weekend and won't be primer grey ANY MORE. I've never had one done up the way I dreamed, and I'm going to ask him to remove the head badge so I can have it restored and replaced on the bike, probably another one on the fairing later.

    I wish I could rollerskate better...I've seen a lot of search references for Rollfast rollerskates lately. The newest Rollfast I've seen so far is a 1972 juvenile model. I haven't really found a good story or book just yet about the Harris company and it's bike and skate line or if anybody bought or absorbed the firm and I would love to have some guidance.

    Sounds like a question for Foo, to me!

    I have not been on rollerskates for years...although I think I could still handle it .

    I always push off with my right leg, don't really skate myself. I step off the floor during reverse skate!

    OKAY!

    After a lot of delay and waiting, I'm stripping the frame and saddlebag carrier. It goes to the body shop in the morning. By Monday or Tuesday it should be done. I can't document the process in pictures as my Epson stopped uploading although it takes pictures and I don't have the 5-pin mini to USB connector for my HP Photosmart 120 yet. I will by Tuesday. I will have a new pair of shoes also and that is great as I think these worn out shoes are a lot of the reason I hurt my back last week. It still hurts to twist in bed suddenly and will take a week or two to get over it.

    I hope the ATI All In Wonder card I found for $5 at the computer store will finally help me finish a real video clip for You Tube and not just the 10 second Windows Movie Maker slideshow of my opening...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AhZcIupF1Q My first clip! On topic too!

    I enjoyed the film clip (especially the little bit at the end ). Moving forward in the saga!

    That's PAC-PIZZA, champion of homemade cuisine from 100% donated foodbank items. He took the heat for all of us!

    BTW, does the nut on the crank turn clockwise or counter clockwise to open it? If it's CCW then it's being a pain and it's keeping me from getting it to him. He says I need to finish it but neither I or my strong neighbor could make it come off that way and it took a long time to get the coaster brake off and I used a Channel-Lok with a hammer to untorque the rear axle nuts after the LBS owner jammed them yet again and claims it's to avoid "liability issues"...it will be such if I hurt myself trying to free a nut. DUH. I'm no good at tube repair/replacement but I try to do what I can.

    The new Reebok court shoes I asked for in exchange for supplying a stereo set for his new shop haven't been delivered yet either and my feet are in bad shape, not to mention these old ones gather up the road gravel in the heels for some reason. I spent several hours with rather limited bending ability geting it stripped and walking for three hours paying bills etc and it's hard to let a back recover like that.

    Anxiety should be hung.

    Do you mean the nut or bolt that holds the crank onto the BB? If that's the case, Counter Clockwise on both sides.

    Thanks for the info. Still wouldn't budge much but it's off being painted now. I've got a camera working now so I'll try to get some shots posted after a bit.

    Okay...not for the faint-hearted...

    Yes, that's the frame kinda buried in the center. Remember that you will never see that primer again.
