So 2 blown magneto seals. This sucks, but turns out you don’t use rtv or sealant on seals. Stupid me, now I get to rebuild 2 e50s. Its not that thats hard, its just annoying making a dumb mistake like that then being down both of my motors. Tom was nice enough to lend me his magnum that we hopped up and its ripping. Currently there are 3 magnums in the shed.

Check the seals, no pinch!

I got 1 of 2 frames I decided I wanted today. First up is the hobbit frame, no need for anything else on there. I’ve got some ideas, we will see how they materialize. Look for those updates coming in 1 big chunk later.

I still want a pinto frame, and would love to get a rigid. I’m not sure if I’m ready to pay what they cost (plus tank), but I might. I’m sick of maxi’s and want something different, and way cooler. An orange swinger would be awesome!

I also painted the magnum frame (finally). I might paint the forks, we’ll see. Something needs to happen with the tank as well, either glossy black or repaint the chalk for ultimate awesomeness. I might even do it flat black but that seems a little lame. Ideas?
