    Just finished the Build, now its fine tuning time before I fire it up. I need to trim a little off the fenders, put a spacer on the 36T sprocket and finish the lights. All in all I am pleased with my 1st build, but it still has to run before I can talk. I am taking my time and am learning a tone. Thanks to the web site I only pulled out a few hairs in the process.

    You have know idea, I feel like a heart surgeon
  5. Did you lose any spokes in the sprocket mount? Did all the bolts line up or did you have to leave some out?
    Man. That is a sweet bike.

    This one is only a 72 spoke wheel and not the 144, so I only had to drop a size in the bolts and I kept all my spokes. If you ordered your engine from Dacs his sprocket mount comes with the bigger hardware. They will not fit between the spokes, a trip to home depot to pick up smaller nuts bolts washers and lock washers and you are good to go. Then all you need is a couple pairs of needle nose pliers and a small hands. Luckily I have both. I never thought I would be glad to have small hands. haha. Oh I almost forgot, the 36 T sprocket I bought had smaller mounting holes than my 44T so I would have had to get smaller hardwear anyway.

    More Pics

    More Pics,
    Ordered some new goodies and for the most part she is running smooth. Still breaking in the engine but It will run 30 mph with about 3/4 throttle. Added the boost bottle, the bent seat post, 48cc engine plate, oval mirrors and a motorcycle kill switch. The lights are all working great off of the white wire, granted they are not for night use but they do light up. haven't had any movement from the 36T sprocket even with the smaller mounting hardware. I also moved the boost bottle to the vertical bar just in front of where it is in the pic, I noticed that fuel vapor was pooling in the bottom of the bottle so I mounted it at a slant so the engine will suck all the vapor out when I poor the coals to it.. Made a big difference.

    The seat post makes it so much easier to pedal, before I felt like my knees were going to hit the handle bars.

    I really like those multispoke wheels and whitewalls positively send a thrill running down my spine. I put whitewalls on my 1947 Raleigh Ladies Sports bicycle recently even though it shouldn't really have them and I must say they looked soooooo nice :grin:
