Clown Bike Update

I finished replacing the drive gear on the clown bike. It goes a little faster than before, and I was able to fix the bad bearings in the crank while I had it apart, so the project was a success. I had to remove the chain guard, because it doesn't fit the new gear, and put a longer chain on which I had laying around from the $3 bike, I think. I rode it around the cul-de-sac a few times, and could almost keep up with my son on his bike. I'm not sure I like the sound of the rear spokes protesting my weight, though. Somehow I need to beef up the rear wheel before I attempt a ride around the block.
