    How far out of town did you have to go for your poser shot or did you even have to leave town? Two months and I'm really missing the high country.

    It actually rides 100x better. I always felt the torsion bar IFS was loose and didn't handle well. The new axle is much more solid feeling and steering is more direct with the high-steer.

    Put 541 miles on the 40. Hauled a pop-up from Tucson to Payson via Globe, and back. That was 336 miles. The rest was trying to find an elk to stick an arrow in.

    KISS Drawers, I added piano hinges to the wings, normally these just bolt down.

    So??? I have always found that getting away from the daily grind and even having some close encounters is glorious.

    Leaky wheel cylinder (replaced both), easiest wrench I have done in a long time. Both shoes can be removed and replaced simply with just a prybar. 006.JPG

    I ran Broken Arrow today with a hodgepodge of rigs with my daughter and one of her friends riding along. I love when the teens show interest in this stuff. 81E4AC6C-871F-4BE7-9021-A2D459D80BBE.jpeg 81E4AC6C-871F-4BE7-9021-A2D459D80BBE.jpeg 13514AB4-E592-4C3E-8EC9-335A518C6633.jpeg EC618024-8D9C-4260-8515-B4D01CF4805A.jpeg

    If your still running the single circuit brake line it's bleeding and adjusting the shoes that are time consuming. When you take the time to do it right these old drum brake work very well.
