    OH, FUCK!!!! Is what I thought about 700 feet out when... my dumb ass pedaled a little toooooo long. And the motor almost came out of power band. But came back. Right now I am replacing the Moon pedal with one that says Schwinn.

    Just after we fired the motor. Lippy leaned in and told me. " If you dont make a full pass , I am going to pull out all your chin hair one at a time". Well , him and Leon have a effect on a mans judgement. And they won!!! Thank fully.

    This thing is awesome!! Wish I could've been there to witness it run a pass. Very cool. I love FED's. I'm sure it was a hairy ride!
     
  12. That's so cool, I'm always dying to see vintage style diggers used the way they are supposed to. Awesome!!
