More Maintenance

June 1, 2010

Pulling out of a gas station in Fargo, ND yesterday we heard an unsual sound from Seb’s bike and on investigation found that one of his four exhaust pipes had broken away from the others leaving this:

Gaposis

We decided to press on to Grand Forks as is and deal with welding it up when shops opened after the holiday weekend. So it’s off to find a welder.

Custom Cycle, right across the street from our motel was most accommodating. Although Curt was gainfully occupied doing other work, he let Seb use his welder. So now, 45 minutes later, it looks like this:

That ain't goin anywhere!

It may not be pretty, but it should hold until he can find a replacement exhaust system and maybe have it shipped to our west coast maintenance base in Seattle.

Curt refused to let us contribute to his shop and instead sent us on our way with wishes for a safe trip! More niceness!

Thank you Curt!

    Hey, Seb, can you repair my vacuum cleaner hose like that when you get here?
