Well the first repair/upgrade is done on the Tomos. It was an easy and free one!

As you can see here the factory handle bars were badly bent.

Thankfully if there’s one thing I do have it’s a bunch of spare bike parts. So I grabbed some 2” rise BMX style bars that came off a bike I got for free a few years ago. A friend had left it behind when he moved to New York. I figured I’d like the look, and being a tal guy with long arms I figure a longer reach would be nice. (Please ignore the floppy blinker.)

If I don’t like them, I have some standerd 6 or 7inch rise BMX bars I’ll slap on.

Next thing on the list is he most important. Replacing the throttle. The return spring in there is totally warn so it doesn’t return. I’m hoping I can just buy the spring, but I haven’t been able to find it yet. Then I’ll need to figure out why the rear brake sticks and fix that. Then on to the floppy blinkers. I’ll probably go for some el cheapo aftermarket ones.
