Lucky, ur chain is too tight

Chain tension is measured with the rider on the bike.

Chain tension is measured with the rider on the bike.
It's still too tight and will get tighter when you sit on it
Max tension is when axle, swing arm pivot and counter shaft are all in line, when wheel is above or below center line chain should be 'loose'

Some things from the 70's are cool, but most of the stuff i think should be left there. JMHO

Hmmm... I like the HRD Vincent theme, but I can't get past the missing rear-cylinder exhaust.
Take care,

Nice bike.  Can anyone tell me what kind of handlebars those are?  I'd like to look into getting them for one or more of my rides.

They look like "M" bars, originally made by Norman Hyde but now available through other sources. RR

I was put on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Now I'm so far behind, I'll never die!
