It’s getting harder to find rough edges to chip away on Sharka. I think I found an untouched area that needed some attention.
Time for Bucky to get some attention! The little guy is such a trusty steed. It was far past time to show him some luv and shiny new parts. Bucky’s handbrake is something I’ve wanted to change for a while, but never ran across the right one. Sharka has a Voodoo brake grip, which I […]
