Since having the bright idea of using motocross front wheels for my 20 Ariel (cos they are 21", allow mw to fit wired on tyres and allow me a small drum brake) I've been struggling to fit the wheel to the narrow girder forks. The Japanese brakeplate, being alloy, is too thick. So Ive made my own from 5mm steel plate to use the old Japanese internals. Kinda pleased how its turned out.

Last time I went out on the Fantic Heath commented that the back end was skipping rather than tracking. So best thing to do would be to service the rear shocks.
The Fantic has the original Marzocchis on it. No idea when or if they have ever been serviced.

Since we went to the Nostalgia Weekend and found the cocktail bar I've wanted to have a go at making a Mai Tai. Trouble is there are dozens of recipes out there on the interweb. So I thought I'd try to make a similar drink to the ones we had.
One part dark rum
One part white rum
One part Ammaretto
Dash of Grenadine
1tsp lime juice
Fill remainder of glass with ice and half and half orange juice and pineapple juice
Its fairly sweet but not a bad effort.

Was bored at work so I did a bit of shopping. I've always liked Kryptonics. Bit of a nostalgia thing and I have several sets of OG greens and reds, but now they are available new again. I wanted some to try on the concrete parks I frequent, so the obvious choice was a set of the cored whites. Different core colours give different hardnesses. I went for green at 97a.
