    I took the weekend off from the shop, but always stay busy. Was urban hunting/hunting Bullseye Snakeheads yesterday, only catching a sunburn for anything worth talking about. Had a few good top water strikes (was the game), but never got a hook set. They have hard jaws, teeth, but are also smart and can spit hooks. Sighted a pair hanging under a foot bridge, but they also spotted me - so strung a threw a grub on a jig head, one darted upon splash, the other saw it and "sniffed" it, then darted too.

    Anyways, had planned on going in Sat and working on the fat tire bike, but shipping delay, that package came today. So, after work, I installed a 2 stroke kit on the Mongoose. Welded some motor mounts, turned the sprocket on the lathe so the stock rear disc brake could be retained with a left hand drive motor. Had to chop/rotate/weld the intake manifold, grind/clearance the caliper, but it all got sorted in just a few hours after closing. Gotta fuel it up and install the throttle/grip. Ran into a snag with handlebar layout when I when the stock gear selector communicated with the throttle control (bike has right hand twist selector for 7 speed derailleur). Unsure how to mitigate that, but will get it tomorrow after hours, might just have to use an old school 10 speed type lever in the interim, throttle is more important lol

      Took a few mins and installed the throttle cable. The bike does 28mph effortlessly, and actually doesn't feel overly safe going that fast haha. The thing is a riot. Well worth the $100 for the kit.

                          We should just replace legacy members with bots. Random collections of words would in many cases be better contributions to the forum.
