    cant we edit our original post?

    well 3 hrs work,made a aluminum strut to replace the old shock,i didnt like the way the bike handled even with a better shock.so in the end a strut was cut and ground to fit.lots of work! close tolerances this time,my pedals were hitting the main clamp for the swingarm.

    well its on!street legal bicycle.....

    ive been saving my pennies and doin lots of research.i needed the strongest frame i could find,without spending tons of dough,i found what i was looking for,18.5 inches 2003 kona sasquatch,long hardtail the bicycle people said if ya want a indestructable frame buy a kona hardtail so i got one,cost me a hundred bucks but i got the crank with it.i needed a paper from the store i forgot what it is,has serial numbers stamped on it,ill need that for registration,along with motor numbers.got a 600 dollar used front fork,what a difference that makes.so i got a 1600 dollar bike with a 600 dollar front end for 200 bucks.this is gonna turn out great,the bike is light but feels like a tank.i bent my miele rear swingarm,my throttle was stuck wide open,when i started the bike what a thing to stop!

    Who Told You That Bike Was A KONA?

    beast 775,
    Are you saying that Kona Bicycles is the Manufacturer of NORCO Bicycles? Or is the frame you bought A Kona with Norco decals? Its my understanding the these are two different manufacturers.

    Nice

    Is that the bike you're gonna ride to Ocean Park next year? That would be cool. I'm planning to make the run with the same drive on a wizwheels zoomer (I get it next month, here's a picture from their site). We'll look like the Odd Couple cruisin' down the highway.:cool:

    I'm leaning hard towards a Staton chain drive like the one on Beast775's ride. It's a little hard to see in that stealth black paint.

    Are you using the stock Staton mount? On my trike, I'll probably have to be inventing stuff, so I'm very interested in anything you may have done in mounting the unit. How about some detail on your lighting?

    alaskavan ..re staton kits

    i actually looked at the bike your gonna use,and it will actually work well if you use the staton kit.the most important part of the kit is the frame mount on the front of the motor,its trueness and ease of moving the motor up and down on its main axle,i probably could save you alot of time by maybe making a couple minute video showing the tricks.i know theres alot of folks drivin these around without proper mounting and they get lots of miles on these kits im talkin about 12 thousand miles with original chain, no problem,the linkage arms going to the motor mounts are not easy to do.ill spend an afternoon setting them up sometimes more.the variable adjustment linkage arms on the front,imho should be mounted on the front mounting bracket not on the motor.ill do a small video of it tommorrow.i dont know if i can put it up here but ill get it to you somehow.:cool:

    Looks like your bike has some giddyup to it. Cool. I've decided to try something other than the staton on the trike. You'll have to wait to see it.
