Go in with a way out. Either keep it small enough where you can just shut things down and take time off as needed for vacations and such or grow it to a point that you have people in place that will allow you time off when needed. That's my whole dilemma

Yessir. Was trying to figure out how to tell you I bought a heavy, clumsy rifle!

Don Garlits drag race museum. Went there in 1986 and it was just too damn cool then. Bet it's even better now. So much history in that building. Even if you only kind of like drag racing it's a must see.

I'm a lot like the guy that writes all of MXA's tests.... always adding a tooth. Or two. Depending on what profile tire you get, the 19's do seem to be a little taller.

Added reply in a thread Front brake cable clamp 8/22/2014 6:18 AM

I have adapted quite a few clamps over the years. Had a few that were too big and used a piece of gasket material on the inside of them to shim them up tight. Had some too small that I cut and welded a small piece of metal in to lengthen them.

Yep. Had Buchanan's drill me a 19 inch Sun with spokes to match. Did the same on our 79 CR125.

Wow, the 77 looks mint under the dust.

Added reply in a thread KTM frame life 8/21/2014 10:50 AM

Odd design? What I found odd about my KTM clamps is that the bearings came greased and didn't require a 3 pound sledge to remove them from the bike like my 30 day old Yamaha did. Again, odd design? These beauties came stock, were able to have the original

WTF are you talking about? Did you even read the thread before posting that? No one here has even suggested anything of the sort.

Also, having a mixing room full of auto paint at your disposal may have me a bit

Having to go out and buy everything to paint a single frame would not be cost effective.

Added reply in a thread Best paint option for a CR125 rider rebuild? 8/21/2014 9:29 AM

Single stage is just that, a direct gloss catalyzed urethane finish. You can clear over it to add additional UV resistance but as far as durability and chip resistance, more paint/clear isn't always better. Metallic colors will benefit from clear, but

Agree and disagree. Some 9mm 1911's are just a small bore 45 and can be real finicky. Finicky guns can get you killed. That's why I went with the STI for a 9mm and it has been a great gun so far. Went with the lightweight aluminum frame since it was ... more »

Added reply in a thread will the cop be charged by gran jury? 8/21/2014 6:58 AM

My view is that the police screwed the pooch by not making it known that the thug beat the cop from the get go. His photos should have been made public immediately to prove the reasoning behind the piece of shit being shot. Amazing that the media couldn't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best paint option for a CR125 rider rebuild? 8/21/2014 6:45 AM

I prefer automotive grade single stage urethane applied over an epoxy primer. It allows for easy repairs or refinishing in the future if it is a bike you plan on riding and racing. It holds up just as well as a clear coated finish. Also, it has a better ... more »
