Riding Miles; Collecting Smiles

WF HD back and forth to work in Orange.
I rode a mile on the dirt side of the river, to stop at the bank on the way home.
I was riding with a road bike rider for about 7 miles and shaved time from my normal pace.
Great day; glad to ride!:D

Out for 62 on the Hawthorne Flyer>>>> today. Perfect temps in the 60's, no wind, flat riding and nobody out for the most part. Ideal fast and furious conditions, even near the coast as there were no peds. to worry about. This bike fits me real nice. When in the middle of the saddle looking down through the handlebars the front axle lines up with my hands as it should. This is a sit and spin bike and powers up to 20 quickly if you just sit planted on the seat and rev it up. In the middle of the saddle, the fork spring sits at the top of the travel with only a tiny amount of sag. If you stand up and hammer in front of the seat, the fork compresses a bunch, making the head angle steeper and the wheelbase longer with mixed/weird results. If you stay in back of the seat while standing, the bike stays high in the travel, allowing it to take up the bumps. Really a fast bike. Lean it and it turns....Thinking of building another one slightly different from this roadster using another motobike-style frame....

SKPC,

I'm so glad you're ok and also hope that you get your ride back in order soon. Your bike really catches my eye. I tend to look at the fully-dressed ballooners, but I love the color combo especially with the small blue accents:) Gives me inspiration to definitely build a lighter weight ride at my older age!

Thanks man! Never too late. Thanks for all the shoutouts on my wreck. After bending the fork back to clear the down tube, I rode it home for 10 miles...It was tipped over and crabbing back home like a wired together Mexican truck with bent axles and a heavy load. It rode, but barely. It still made it home though. The Shelby was built maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Original frame/fork/stem/bars/crank/ring is how I first found it.

Rode over to a place we rode bikes and hung out at as kids, there are acre's of abandoned buildings at the old "county poor farm" that was for the homeless back in the 20 & 30's, part of it turned into Rancho los Amigos hospital ( polio epidemic ). It was half abandoned 50 yrs ago when we had the run of the place ( a lot of good jumps ) and now its pretty bad from vandalism and the homeless. Its soon to be redeveloped into sports fields and warehouses and I didn't realize there is a LA county Sheriff substation on site to protect ( a little to late ), they swooped upon me and I got a armed escort out, I knew a back way in and didn't pas any no tresspassing signs but they said there was too much asbestos and stuff around. There was a old "Big" house for the big boss that burnt down I wanted pictures of but the art deco Auditorium is still there one of the said if I came back next Mon or Tue I could get some more pic ( escorted ). Man if they haven't let this place go to hell we could use a "county farm" now with all the homeless!

Stopped by the library, a buggy and its nag awaiting its owner.

Bikes are fun.



Found my tube of MAAS polish and worked on the Racer's paint a little.

I'm ordering a 1 pound tin of this stuff.
