Makes me thing of a fellow rider only it is his GMC 1/2 ton 4X4 he bought back in 92 or possibly '89. Anyway it has a maze of miles on it & he knows it is nickle & dimeing him to death though will not admit it & does not want to buy anything by Cdn/American being GMC/Ford.
So here he is working on the front right arm that simple wore out & really he should be looking at the left arm along with new brgs & of course he has the electrics hanging out in the dash that are sort of corrected, but he made it through the winter with no heating.
Now he has finally decided to buy a set of 1/2" socket sets in metric not for his Yamaha 350 dual purpose bike, BUT for the truck as he is running up against so many metric nuts & bolts. Mind you he admits when it comes to some nuts or bolts he will have to buy said larger sizes individually.
He has the money but wants to wait another 2.5 yrs for then he will get his pension, but he is living on lots of money left by his parents.
You project seems a bit like his only who's is the most crazy I really do not know.
Personally I will not nicke & dime myself to death & simply dump the one or two bikes or like my '90 truck with only 70,000 Clicks on it for its first failure being a major electronical problem that after over 20 days they still had not cured so bought myself a new SUV. By the way the shop, that took my Mazda 2600 4X4 truck in for a trade-in is still trying to correct it only that was taken in on February 6th.
