    Hi, My names David and I'm new to this forum.
    My bike was an old Royce Union (K-Mart) Bike which was aluminum, being very light i stripped the whole surface of the bike and all its parts.

    I then took time in painting it Ford 1970's Green Tropicana
    with touch-up paint, as i wasn't an experienced painter i just painted as best as i could and hoped for the best

    I had bought my engine via an eBay seller and took time in putting it on, overcame many problems since my frame is thicker than anything anyone has ever seen.

    I went to the store and bought some wheels, tires, tubes, brakes, etc.., spending my time and money on the bike i was amazed at my progress, i had turned an old rusty k-mart bike into a crazy motorbike

    Too bad i don't have before and after pictures as it would have been wonderful to see the difference

    I've tested the bike today and it really flies :) I think i felt 40km\h at half throttle before my chain link broke and flew away :(

    I ordered my mirrors and speedometer / odometer

    when i was riding today my muffler cap fell off so i removed the whole inside of the thing

    it's bloody loud now but i don't know if it gives any of an increase as the insides aren't in it, is it really necessary?

    and it sometimes cuts out when I'm riding it, i think it's because i had a low amount of petrol in the tank

    does anyone know where i can get a performance (NGK) spark plug and boot from? aswell as air filters and performance mufflers?
