Here are the sorry results, but consider that this morning, my son and I did a 45 minute bike ride. Icy puddles look out here we come.
I) Install the heater in the lab, No way, It was really just to get it out of the way.
2) unload materials for the heap 'o parts. Good to go, moved the frame, a trike front end and some forks.
3) Do initial assembly of chrome chopper bike. got as far as getting it on the rack.
4) make shopping-digging out list of additional parts for the chopper. found the original fork, check to smaller heap for other choices.
5) install / adjust rear cables, seatpost, saddle, rack on wife's bike. No way, next time
