I'm making a compromise here, because I asked you to kill it, and all you did was shrink it. But I'm not a meany, so OK.

My advice is to use in your AW whatever you use on your derailleur chains. That can be bike chain oil or ATF or chainsaw oil. Just don't use the vegetable-based 3-in-1 oil.

Your signature isn't just angry-sounding, it lacks context. I don't know what it's about, and I'm afraid I won't want to know.

Its a movie quote, but if I were you I wouldn't want to know what it means to me personally, so I'd go ahead and stick with "I'm afriad I won't want to know." Thanks for the advice on the oil, I always used transmition oil, seems to work, but thanks again for the advice.

Sorry, it needed a bit of color sitting down there all small like that.

No no, not another, thats mine! Most members know I've decided to get out of the hobby, I'm selling off some of my "collection" here on the bikeforums too, two on the SS/FG marketplace, and I think one? maybe two? on the "for sale" thread, but I'm keeping my personal bikes that add up to roughly 7 bikes, that in ltself is hard to beleive as I had 32 personal bikes at one time! (the stem is slightly bent)

Don't be its by choice, took me a long time (to long) to figure out I spend way too much money on the hobby.

I know, it did the same to me, sadly it just sold 20 minutes ago. The things parents will do for their children!

I love muscle bikes. Brings back memories of neighborhoods full of little madmen, mostly on Stingrays tearing up the 'hood. Raleigh Choppers were very rare in Southern California. Can only remember seeing one or two. It was a Schwinn town.

When I see damage like that bent stems, I marvel at what 13 year old boys get themselves into. Imagine the collision the boy had. He hit something hard and stayed on the bike. These boys are adventurous, stupid, and incredibly resilient. Pain doesn't bother them much, if at all. It's entertaining to me, and I wish it were a memory for me, but I wasn't like that as a boy.

As a kid, I wasn't really one of those brawny kids, wasn't much of a fighter and I rather build model airplanes than do violent team sports. On the bike though i was absolutely fearless and had a few wrecks. The worst was when i was ten and hit a tree at full clip when a cord from my hoodie snagged on the handlebars. The whole front end was toast, but for some weird reason I still had my front teeth. Lost those in an unrelated surf board incident the next year.

I was a model guy too, mostly monster movie, sci fi, space stuff, and I never really fought unless I saw the bullies picking on the little guys. Funny thing though, when I got on my bike I instantly turned into Evil Knievel! Jumpig ramps, doing wheelies, racing our bikes around the block smash up derby style! Good times man! Good times!
