Rear tire was flat and bald and areplacement is on it's way. Time to clean up the rear and put my new wiring harness in place.
While I'm at it the rim could use a freshening up. The hub has lots of flaking paint. I really don't feel like taking off the spokes as I have wheels that still need to be re-threaded and trued. I think I'll just clean it as best I can for now. Maybe next winter I'll tear this bike apart again and repaint everything as I want this bike to run for the first nice day in march.
