The red car was rusted & patched exactly where yours is - sorry. Guess it's sayonara Suzukiclone for you too, eh?

Have you been riding/driving your electric scooter this year? You really ought to post a thread about it (with pics, naturally).

I thought that was the one you patched, so I guess the other side is not the same either huh?

Nope getting tired of fixing the broken controllers but I am working on an old mountain bike that I now have 2 20" eGo wheels on a 26 inch frame making it a low rider stretch bike that I will mount an eCycle motor on and maybe 2 or 4 - 26ah batteries on a spring mount and end up with a pretty fast low sitdown easy rolling street bike - no suspension with high pressure ringworm tires.

You could cut an old cooling tray (like for baking) down to size, prolly pick one up from a junk sale or thrift store for cheap.

That's a good idea - and it made me think of another one: a grill from an oven (the racks inside, you know?).

Shopping cart mesh

How about the mesh from an abandoned shopping cart?

No abandoned carts in my little town. But that's the idea I was thinking of. Even something like the mesh from an ironing board. (Some have a metal lattice under the pad & cover...) Something will turn up. If not, I could always go buy a roll of aluminum flashing and put on a double-ply's worth.

Anyway, the bike trailer is done. Turned out OK. I'll post a pic or 2 eventually.

Second: back to the ForkenSwift.

After a too-long delay, Ivan and I spent an hour on it this morning. Hopefully the inertia will carry it along a little more regularl

It was gratis for the metal. Scrap. Ivan cut it & we drilled it.
