Garage Party 4/20
« on: April 15, 2019, 10:08:17 PM »
Yea Yea I know 4/20 right? Well since I'm the absolute king of having broken crap. It's high time I fixed that so without further diatribe I'm having a garage Party on 4/20. Will be all day as I have the following projects to attempt to fix.

1. ZRX diagnose and find out and maybe fix why it left me stranded on the dragons tail, involves pulling the head and maybe a basic port / valve job and god only knows what.

2. Finalize getting my KDX street legal

3. Possibly getting the concourse running if I can get some funds and parts and a dealership trip lined up in time. (doubtful but maybe at least we can get a list of fixes that need to be done)

4. the KAZUMA VIPER 110!!!!!!!! It runs ish  but is beyond sketchy Hopefully kyle can help me get / find out what bearings are needed before hand and we can swap that stuff over to make it something that won't try and kill us at vintage fest. Also the seat needs to be resecured via means other than duct tape....

Also I'll have my "simulator rig" with some VR and other stuff on trial. Working on getting more games VR compatible in time but I can guarantee it will work with a few different cars and a laser scanned copy of barbers. Food and  beer of course, let me know what y'all want, Thinking about making a fatty roll, and hamburgers or hot dogs.

All are welcome and I've got a decent selection of tools and enough copies of Crusty demons of dirt to make everyone wince.

I'll post up my address closer to time, but I live right behind the summit in birmingham.

I can come and accidentally wake up everyone's kids! Hahaha........
Really though I may be able to make it down. Would be a good test for the new saddle that's coming in tomorrow. And I can bring my front brakes and swap them out. I'll let you know.

If my zrx hasn't pissed off my neighbors with an open baffle a few Horn honks won't......

 I might be able to make this!

If it’s still going I may stop by after work (6:30-7:00 ish) can’t stay long though.

Didn’t get to hang out very long. I did however have a great time hanging out with the guys there.

Got bad news on the zrx, she's going to be sidelined for a while, at least until the Connie gets running and the Porsche gets fixed and sold to bank roll it.

But thanks to everyone that lent a hand.

The only real forward progress made all day was Rodney getting the key out of the concours new ignition, and fixing dons not quite broken but just out of Gas bike....
