Video I made for my son so he could keep track of my progress. He has no idea I built this bike for him.

Video of Flappers
For you Mr. Spockster. Thanks for all your help

Looks good, very unique. A video of those flappers in action might be awesome.
Going to give my battery a look too. I know the hold down strap is off of it, some of those giant speed bumps (frost heave) we have might have made it pop up. It's not that you missed the problem that matters, but that you found it ... and also shared it.
I'm sure your son will be thrilled, as will you.
Two wheels down! Let us know how the unveiling goes. 30 days, here's hoping for great weather.

As mentioned previous to this post, give my thanks to your son along with our respect and admiration for what he is doing for this country. Don't worry about making a simple mistake. I am sure you learned a lot more because of it than you would have if it all fell into proper order on its own. The fact you realized your mistake, corrected it and were willing to tell the rest of us about it shows some real honesty and class. I am sure your experience will play back in the heads of many here when they have a similar unfound situation. I know I will remember to look for the simple and obvious before replacing and tearing apart too much at first.
Good luck to you and your son and I hope you both get many miles together.
