SC1800 gets another day off

Overhauled the BB yesterday and discovered much to my chagrin that the bearings are in no way sealed! Suppose the designer intended for this area to receive service more often. Also found it difficult to get a precise adjustment, so we're going to go in for a chase and a face in the near future. We will see if that helps that area.

The white turtle light is still OK, at least for the short ride home from my brother's place last night. The key seems to place the button over the exact centre of circuit board. Must test ride that do-dad some more to determine durability of that repair.

No riding this morning as there was a bank function and felt it necessary to hop in my monkey suit. Wouldn't want to wear that outfit out on my bike in this weather!
