Figured I would share my shiny wheels.  I needed a new front tire and 20 plus years of existence had made the old paint show its age, I repainted the wheels. 

Here's the K post final drive rebuild shake down ride..
looks good. I need to paint my wheels. What did you use?

I used the VHT paint from Autozone.  Came out pretty good.  I first used Acetone to completely clean the wheels.  The used the VHT self etching primer for 2-3 coats.  Then the Silver VHT wheel paint for 3-4 coats, and lastly 2 coats of the VHT clear.  The kid at Cyclegear scratched it a little when mounting the new tire but oh well.

Tire changeover using the zip-tie method, a quick brake pad change then back to the road rills, gullies and pothole fields my Brick calls Home:laughing4-giggles: A bath in the afternoon, probably.

Incredible amount of trivia to be gleaned from these posts as many of these references are foreign to me. Ned Kelley helmet, check. bucket flap, check. 1 bucket = 640 oz. check .  112350

Sepia is the traditional color, still, there is room for earbuds in them but don't count on them to be bulletproof.

With a Ned Kelly helmet if you seal up the vision slot it eliminates the need for a mask.

You couldn't ask a bloke with a beard like that to wear a covid mask, that'd be worse than highway robbery.

Bought a 1994 RT on Friday.  It had a sticking throttle so I pulled it apart, cleaned it with some gas and an old toothbrush, put some white lithium grease on in there and it's silky smooth and returns with a snap.
