    Hello everybody....Just finished my NE5 whizzer kit project. I was going to paint it all up nice but after finishing it I kinda like the Ratty look...Here's some information on the build:

    I started with a new NE5 kit I got from a guy who got it from his deceased neighbor's wife (the old guy passed away before ever getting to use it). After reading here about Quenton's upgrades I sent him the cylinder and head for his treatment and installed his mushroom lifters.

    The bike was assembled using an early Roadmaster frame, Shelby shockease fork and a new set of Worksman heavy duty wheels. I used an old Delta battery box to hold the coil, ignition and wiring. I chose not to use a battery, just wired to the voltage regulator under the tank and back to the lights. The lights work fine this way.

    I used an old Harley 30w highway light for the headlight and a repro Vincent 10w stop/tail light. I ran the kill switch and front brake switch wiring inside the handlebars for a cleaner look. I used the kit throttle but cut the brake lever off and buffed the black paint off for a vintage look. I also cut the motorcross looking lips off the grips to look more vintage. I made and adapter to mount the original style belt cover. I adapted the original Roadmaster front fender to fit on the rear wheel. I chose to use the flex exhaust (love the look).

    I have a few plans for some minor changes like a rattier seat and such. I've ridden the bike a few miles and it runs great. The little engine sounds sweet especially at low rpms up a grade. It seems to have plenty of power but I haven't opened it up yet due to break in. Many Thanks to Quenton for answering all my questions no matter when I called him...He's a prince of a guy for sure. Hope ya'll enjoy the pictures...Do you think I should paint it or leave it Ratty??

    Thanks...Got the tail light on ebay. Do a search for "bobber tail light" I think I got it for $40 so don't pay too much, Some dealers are asking twice that.

    What fuel line did you use? It appears bigger than what would fit to the tank and carb fittings.

    I believe the fuel line is 1/8" ID.....approx. 5/16 OD.... Could it be you are looking at the much larger breather hose coming from the tappet cover?

    I'll need to try some of that. The only hose I've used so far... and it's a little too small... is the clear line most often used in 2-cycle outdoor power equipment.

    Good looking bike, nice job. I am just curious to know if it is street legal where you live?

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    The Whizzer isn't "legal" by NC moped laws only because of the engine size. NC law states that it must be under 50cc but since I drive it around at moped speeds (under 30mph, most of the time :) The cops in my my area don't seem to care so I ride it all over town with no worries.

    Thanks for the response on the "legality" question. I am glad your local law enforcement dosn't seem interested in your riding the Whizzer. Be safe and as Quenton says "have fun".
