A short ride around the neighborhood, provided a perfect opportunity to shakedown the recent rebuild and complete (barely) my January monthly goal for saddle time.
The short ride included a side trip through the historic Bolivar Cemetery. Since Mr. G. A. Grissom was evidently well-liked by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, I feel a certain kinship. I wonder if he was a fixed wheel enthusiast?
Part of the loop passed by a small lake. The ducks seemed quite content in water, even with air temps in the mid 30s.
Considering its intended purpose, the rebuilt Kogswell Model P performed very well. I’ll need to attend to the headset, which began to work loose, but everything else seems ready for a longer excursion.
