    Hi,

    My name is Jesse and I'm from Louisville, Ky. I recently aquired a k&s bike machine engine from a coworkers garage. I got it mounted up on a beach cruiser and riding it to work every day. The guys at work don't get it, cause i have three motorcycles 1000cc and up. But it's a blast.

    the tank that was on the motor was cracked in about 600 places. I looked for a lawn mower tank to put on it, but couldn't find one for a price i felt was reasonable. So i got the one gallon tank from walmart and drilled a hole in the bottom. works great and passes nothing but a gas station!

    Someone gave me a chainsaw the other day that they couldn't get started. I cleaned the sparkplug and the air filter, replaced the fuel line, and cranked some kerosene thru the carb. started right up. i'm gonna try to mount it on the front wheel with a chain. the clutch on the saw works great, so i'm optimistic.
