Snow Flyer on the Fly
Thanks to the crew for all their work and allowing me the opportunity to educate them on clincher wheels and tires. On Tuesday we had three docents come in for the project, Rick Larrick, Paul Tekin, and Will Chase. We put new tires on the new wheels we had made, and then put them on the Flyer, adjusted up the tracks and made it ready for operation.
The test run went well, except that the battery power to the coil box failed and it quit on us, causing us to fire it up on the mag, which runs very well. We continued to play around with it, and now it's ready for the annual Tired Iron Rally,..as soon as we fix the electrical issue. Great job guys!
