I didn't want to do it,but I did. RIP MOOP. So many memories. So many mods. Even with that tractor seat after a while by back would hurt riding MOOP. Funny though when I talked to MOOP he was actually okay. I think MOOP is the engine more than the bike surrounding it. MOOP knows I'll ride him more now. Ah the memories... And now...MOOP TWO!! MOOP TWO was a challenge in that I have my host home guy with me and I have no gas in my truck and I only have 10 bucks to my name this week so no going to the hardware store. So this entire build today was from parts laying around. Yesterday I got some hardware I took my client with me and had just enough gas in my truck. So first challenge was the front mount. Simple fix. Plate is a concrete divider something comes in a box of like a thousand dude just gives me a few because you can't price per piece. I used an old tire liner to protect the paint actually and offer some vibration dampening. Then some of you remember how I did MOOP's clutch cable. I needed to fabricate a frame holder so I can keep the clutch cable without having to make another one. Here's the result. I kinda don't like how the cable is rubbing like that on the engine but it's working well actually. Here's the clamp: I also had trouble with my chain. It was too short! And my chain breaker is BROKEN!! But with a nail,hammer and a 2x4 with a hole in it,I got her done! I really should add a link to that chain,though Clearances are pretty tight. Then when I finally got her all done I needed a fuel line for the original one is too short! So I took a bit from that Boost Bottle and now actually that's the way that bottle is supposed to go anyway! Here's another shot of MOOP 2!! And the thread that explains a bit as to how I acquired this bike and will give some history as we discover it. http://www.motoredbikes.com/showthread.php?t=13112 So I took it for a test run, Right away there's some vibrations happening above 15 mph. Gotta tighten down those mounts. Maybe rethink those tire liners. This is an old frame so the tubes are rather thin. I need to keep from having my engine go side to side which is what it's doing. I remember a post here about a head bolt mount to the frame. I may need to do that. Other than the vibrations and the mounts it feels so different. This bike is so smooth. And it has a different personality. I like it alot. It may be safe I'm thinking to have that vibration at speed for this bike only has a coaster. I kinda don't want to add a front brake. Maybe a drum front. I want a drum front on Cronus too. So what am I gonna do with that Diamondback? For now it's going in the parts pile. But MOOP lives on! MOOP lives on!
