Whoops ! I forgot I had already posted most of this. Ah, well. It might be useful to someone - there's a bit more description of process this time. When last we left our heroes, we were racing around without having finished the back of my 1927 Salmson. It worked fine, but lacked that certain je ne sais quoi that comes with added detail and completion, even on a simple workmanlike ride as this.

Yeah, well, nothing causes issues like a time-bound task, either. When things go right, OK, and when not, AUGGHHH!! Anyway, regular readers will recall that I, in a fit of inspiration, scheduled the First Northeast Dustoff got June 3 (and event to get together CKers hereabouts, so as to establish this hobby/sport in this corner of the US, and not let the northwesties and southwesties have all the fun). So, that means a little prep is required: a course of course, some food and drink, but most...
