Ummm, I used to run my rear brakes on the left before I took them off. Does that count?

haha..


hm, well i dunno how odd these are, but ...lets see...i cut off and dremeled down the brake mounts, cable guide and gyro tabs on my old micromachine frame...um, i drilled out the compressionbolt on my ody forks to run 2 cables through it(to run dual fronts)..then theres, well..dual front brakes, which i ran for a while(both levers work the front brake). right now im running my front lever on the right...(i dont run rear brakes)cuz i do everything opposite. um..i drilled a bunch of holes in the underside and sides of my ody 99er seat...i dont run the normal spacer that comes with the ody eurobb on the drive side, i just have a thick washer and the sprocket adapter to keep the sprocket close to the frame and the chain aligned better. and ive trimmed my bars down an inch or so...i think thats about it

ok to start... i'm a machinast so when i get bored i get creative but not much with my bike lately, turned the ends of my pegs down about 1/16" cuz they were fucked from grindin, turned my compression bolt so it didn't have the wrench grooves on the O/D turned the other end shorter and turned the I/D larger,  drilled the ceter of the elementary bolt and turned the end, milled the wedges in the elementary stem to make them fit better, turned my bar ends so they weren't as fucked up, turned the axles shorter, turned the axle nuts shorter, turned 1 geisha axle atud shorter so it didn't stick out further then the nut, turn the seat post down, milled the seat post joint, turned the profile crank bolts down, drilled out the bootom of the seat for some reason. thats all for now i think


ppl run cuz i say i kill ppl
