Doesn’t matter, post 53 it was done in 8 seconds, plus he gets to dip the whole chain in a bucket of kerosene.

After the dip and wipe down with old newspapers, he can soak it in a can of oil; another wipe down and get the excess oil off and it will be the best lubed chain on the block.


Yep. gonna get the goo off then measure for chain stretch/ware.
Thinking of using some Mobile 1 I have leftover from my Pantera days.
That should do until I decide if the bike is a keeper and can get some proper lubes – if I’m so inclined.
Thanks All!

Not yet. Waiting until tomorrow to de-goop it, check the length, and apply some lube.
Going to clean up the derailleurs while the chain is off. They too have thickish coating of dried crud.
Might as well do this now so it looks better to sell if I decided it’s too small for me.

Got a bike light from the Amazon Deals thread. $19.99.

It’s on the battery tester now.
All the Best,
Jeff
