Grabbed the bicycle and headed the 15 miles into town with a good chunk of that on the TriMet. Was overall very pleasant way to travel, but took a while.





Went there for a group ride around Portland.



1600 riders and stopping traffic everywhere we went. I enjoyed sitting and watching the crowd go by and then pedaling back to the front. Did it a few times sitting near oncoming traffic lanes.



Stopped at a park and this little buddy was sitting next to me.

Not working is the only thing that stresses me out. It's the worst feeling ever. Is y'all's business just slow right now? Did you get hurt?

If I may borrow your collective fabricating genius for a while...

I have this kids ATV I've been itching to make sth of and both my kids and my sister's kids are constantly bugging me about it... So I'm probly gonna build a buggy out of it the engine's a gonner so probly gonna buy one of those 150€ stationary motors with a horizontal shaft and throw a sprag clutch on that so it'll be automatic, no reverse but booohoo not gonna spend a fortune on this. I'm probly gonna split the atv frame in half, stretch and widen it and weld on a couple overhead rails for a rollcage. Now the part I'm struggling to figure out is the powertrain. For obvious reasons I'm gonna have to mount the engine on a tray over the rear suspension but since it's a swingarm suspension instead of independent I can't run the chain straight down. Is the best/only solution really a double chain with an intermediate double gear somewhere near the swingarm pivot point? Cus that'll be a helluva long chain and if there's a better option I'm keenly listening.

Edit: practically the only other option I can think of is to mount the engine ON the swingarm but not sure if that would cause issues with fuel delivery or other stuff...
