You can't beat the price of a bike as your primary mode of transportation! $140 for a whole new transmission with all this towing capacity! And you can't beat the benefits to your back side either! Anyways....I rent shop time on the MIG welder they have in the back, so the other day I made the door hinges I have scavenged the parts for.
After a good scrub with Naval Jelly to take the rust + paint off I cut them down into pieces and order some cast iron barrel hinges from eBay.
