    Take it from an ex-smoker, best thing you can do is scrub the walls down with soap and water.

  3. That's what I thought too! Gonna give it a try. Since the mower has been in there though it's already made the smoke stench less prominent. I'll try it this weekend

    Hey... Let's give muriatic acid a try! What's the worst that could happen! ...just kidding. Would be funny though.

  9. Howdy guys.

    Here's a fun before and after for you all. As well as a detailed tour of my new (to me) stand up rolling tool box. Yesterday it was an empty garage. Tonight, it's damn near a full blown work shop. Bike got to the apartment in one piece, and I wont lie, trying to load and unload a bike without front brakes gets to be a tricky maneuver.

    anyways, without further blabbering, heres the transformation of my workspace.

    just a little something to make you guys feel better too...

    For all of you who struggle to find your way around a computer, Im 22, and it just took me 30 minutes to take pictures with my phone, transfer them to the laptop, and submit them to here. I used to be able to do that in minutes. Wonder whats going on... LOL

  13. Who wants to join me in a game of "guess what parts I ordered!" Featuring a side game of "how am I supposed to move my bike now?"

    Hints are as follows...

    Each part that needs replaced is pictured :laughing::wink2:

    The bike won't move without one

    And I'm too lazy and sad to come up with other hints. My car died a day after ordering $250 in parts! Lol... Probably a fuel filter. But that's besides the point.

  19. I feel like a little kid on Christmas guys

    Mailman: you're close... The parts pictured are old ones that will be getting a replacement. Perhaps I should've been more clear. Look for old worn out bits. Not new bits haha.

    Aside from that though, you're really close with battery.

    Yeah, Jim.. the buck horns have finally hit my last nerve. Chose a unique bar style for the stock frame and riding position. Who knows how it'll work out.

    Moabite, I'm happy you said something, because I worked hard to clean up that grommet. But surprisingly, the tank grommet was there when I bought it!
