    Welcome Dixiedevil!

    You will probably have more luck if you ask questions in the "tech" section or the "General questions" area.

    There are a couple of bikes here I think, with a briggs type engine.

    I gave B'ham/Jeff Co a 4 day ride-about last July, over the Mtn twice via Mtn Brook/Green Springs/Alford/Bluff Park....

    Anyway, happy to help.

    new from AL

    whats up every one. im new here and finally starting on my project involving a stingray chopper and a 200c carter motor.. suprisingly that fits snuggly in the gap...Im presently stuck on a few issues. mainly the brake and electrical situation. THe brake is the most important i trying to figur eout what is the best route for me in that would it be cheaper to buy the hub and the disc kit and do it myself. which i odnt htink would be a problem or for $180-200 (kit&installation) the bike shop down the street will do it... im basically trying to save money here... Im htinking i will just get the guys down the street to do it but i mean Suggestions are mroe than welcome

    suggestion: read read read the "frame-mount" section...there might be some helpful info in the "BICYCLE repair" area, also...when you find a topic that interests you, post a "reply" with any questions or comments.

    i merged this into your existing intro-thread...

    hey and welcome, i JUST finished my build on my stingray and i didnt need the hub with the 80cc kit but then i also used the mount from barry. any questions about alignment and things of that nature just pm me, or i will take pics for you all the pics i took so far are at in a slide show i find that easier than clicking the pics in the pics section.:grin:
