    Yup...buy an angle grinder some metal and fab your own, ain't rocket
    science.. the mounts will likely be the highest quality item on the bike
    as far as the motorside of things go. HT motors are anything but high quality items
    poor cast inefficient junk is chow i would describe them.:)


    Best of luck

    Motor Mount

    Here you are Wendie--this one has a jackshaft mounted on it also but ended up separating them to make it work on my bike.

    Wendie,
    The rear sprocket is a 5 sprocket cluster, 14T thru 28T
    I the third gear seems most comfortable to cruise in. I use a cheap thumb lever for shifting(works great). The bike also has an apple juice tank under the seat. Full lighting-turn-brake light system.
    Everything built on a budget.
    Exhaust is $19 pocket bike expansion pipe.
