i DID have a video i was trying to upload via wifi. but wifi crashed. in retrospect, probably just as good because video was still shaky. so i changed camera mount again will shoot a short test run tomorrow. if it works, will reshoot the route from that run and try to have it up monday or tuesday.

This build is teaching me the art of the redneck patent. Each photo has a time and day stamp, and the Youtube does same thing. Thinking of uploading a sideshow to you of all of the build pics as well so I have a backup of those as well.

Camera mount test was successful.. will try to shoot a full length ride tomorrow.  a littlebit of bubble wrap for some extra vibe  dampening helped.  eventually going to try aand get a ram mount.  ended up mounting it down below centre  of frame  on bottom of seatpost.  it works.  so far lol. braaking still an issue. will have to address it. have 3 more brake changes available. and about 50% left on  this set

Found my next horn. I prefer a loud mini, but close to a hundred so not really . but this will work too. Plus it has a light which I need.

This will work methinks.

Speaking of cheap chinesium motorcycle batteries this would power a car horn. Would be a total loss=no onboard charging. But can charge using a cheap tender or a cheap automotive battery charger.

work on the cow is essentiqally finished. once im able to clear the budgetary impasse im at i can finish it completely.
metal wheel covers, (for braking)  a battery for an obnixious horn, the aforementioned obnoxious horn, and probably a new brake cable. ( current one lookin  kinda sketchy. still solid but sketchy looking.) but really thats all. going to try and get someone to video me  doing a flyby on it.
