I greatly appreciate Harold's patience while I worked to make it right for him.
Are the ones for the 110's available yet?
What type of finish is on them again?
Is shipping included in the price or can we use our own UPS account for shipping?

Replaced steering wheel with a Range Rover one. I tried to order a 36 spline steering wheel from LRDirect.com (QTB102760PMA), but received an email that said:

"We are really sorry, the following parT is not available from the supplier: QTB102760PMA"

This was the OE brand. The LR brand was $413.31, so I didn't even inquire about availability of that one (the OE was listed for $181.00).

I bought the Range Rover one for 110.00 GBP shipped to my door from ebay.uk (unfortunately before Brexit).

The Range Rover steering wheel is a tad bit smaller than the original one and since the 200Tdi gave me power steering, the extra bit of room is appreciated.

First time with the $65 REI garage sale Yakima bike rack on the 110. We all did 20 miles around gateway Floyd Bennet field, Riis Beach and Fort Tilden. Perfect day.

110's are on the horizon for real. I'll probably do a pre-order and do batch of them. There will be XD's and HD's with tree bars.

They are black powder-coated

Shipping is not included in the price. You can use your own shipping account if you so choose.

Maybe +4 feet? I feel much better with that rack on the 110 than I do on the Subaru. The bikes are higher up off the ground and I think I get a wider berth in the truck.

Just did a couple little things over the weekend...

1) Swapped out some bulbs on the license plate light, still not sure why it doesn't work
2) Installed some window tinting
3) Quick test drive to check steering alignment

Get the GKNs, don't waste your time with the Precision 344s....their quality control has changed and it's a bear trying to get the Precisions to fit these days.

isolate the starter cable from solenoid housing...

My errand trip to the bike shop and dry cleaner turned into some fun today. Truck ran fine and I shut it down for a few minutes between stops. Went to the shop, came back and hit the ignition, starter keeps spinning after the truck is on. After some consultation and diagnosing in the parking lot, determined the ignition was not the issue (white wire with red line), so focused on the starter solenoid (which is new). Manifold was hot, which kind of sucked. After pulling the bat cable off the starter, noticed chafe marks. Appeared it chafed itself through the rubber housing and was connecting to the solenoid housing to short the solenoid (and run the starter after the engine was on/cable energized).

Paint

Finally nearing the end of some work on the 110. Picked up from paint today and putting it back together this week. It's come a long way in the last 6 months.

Went camping.... In Brooklyn. Floyd Bennet Field we took an RV slot instead of in the trees. Wiley spots are the way to go if anyone ends up doing this.
