so the first time i took the all your maxi’s sux bike the front wheel must not have been tightened down enough so the break plate came out of place on the forks and spun my brake cable around the axle and snaped it, destroying a brand new brake cable, the NOS axle and bending the brake plate a little. i almost ran into a wall, good thing my back brake is the best brake ever.

well, i got this temp set up for chicago. its okay.

well i got the moped done, and riding, but i still have to work out small things.  i got this temp set up from the shop that i built for chicago. all my spectaculars:

so since i cant get the hott rims i want right now im gonnna settle on using these totally shitty (really nice) peugoet spokes.

they just needed a little bit of cleaning from sitting for 30 years,

2.25 savas put on by hand for cute happy no scratches!

oh, and a 40t puch sprocket with extra drilled holes because the spoke pattern on these wheels is fucking stupid

No mo’ Chicago fo’ me.
