“The bike is ready for coast2coast in March. Although, the engine still needs a lot of work.

“It is the small frame R-84. Upgraded to 10-speed components, longer boom, lightweight carbon fiber wheels, longer straight handlebar stem.

“Decked out, as pictured, this R-84 is right at 20 pounds.

“It is a very smooth ride with the front and rear shocks rebuilt.

“Reading through the various crazyguyonabike blogs I was able to piece together a pretty good schedule for my Coast 2 Coast ride this spring.”

“Several weeks ago I ordered a new Lightning Dynamics F-40. Last week while traveling thru CA I stopped in at Lightning Dynamics’ factory for a quick tour. Got to meet Tim Brummer and see parts of my F-40 being built.”
