It's going on. Shaft became lengthened. Looks perfect for the Monster with all these bubbles.

First ride today. Had some trouble with the right grip which loosened while riding (there was some alcohol left under the grip which I used for installation). Other problem was the left crank arm which loosened too. I think the square tapper is broken somehow.

I have always used hair spray for grip installation. Your ride looks great!

Thanks!! I normally used hairspray, too. Can't remember why I tried alcohol. Today I installed the grips with hairspray and I think they're fixed now.

I made some changes on the Yo in the meantime...


Paul Components brake levers...





...and Grafton Joystix.





Full view.




Last wishes are some skinwall tires and a True Temper alloy handlebar, probably some other rims.
