    So do the pedals rotate ALL the time?

    No. There is a front freewheel.

    Thanks Pablo. Should I just do a search on "Front Freewheel"? Is there a specific model I should look for?

    thank you pablo for changing the heading, thats what i get for getting in a hurry, trying to post before i go to work.

    have put about 10 miles on the bike and love it so far wife just bought me a push push shifter will see if that works better then the twist shift i took off the kids moon dog.

    Very good job there man,love that frame.
    Pity(for me) u can't put a 4-stroke Honda in there with a shifter kit,but it looks like even under the best of circumstances the Honda won't fit.
    Anyway yours turned out excellent.

    kcmcf - I just politely asked the cools mods to change the header.

    We are inching toward the very thing, Honda and shift kit!

    Pablo, that would be sweet. Is it for the Grubee gear box?

    did a little work this spring on my bike. added a tensioner to keep the jack shaft chain from coming off all the time and added a 12v battery and a 12v garden flood light for night driving. it has a 35 w bulb in it. the rear light runs off the bike. in the bage is the battery tools,spare gas in msr bottles and a rain suit seems like we have gotten a lot of rain here this year. always at night when i am coming home from work. still nee to get a better shifter and find some type of mud guards. hit 36 mph on it 2 weeks ago and still had 3 gears left. have a expansin chamber to put on it yet.




    Latter all

    nice bike kevin i am currently doing a full suspension bike myself i have a GT LTS 2 the frame is smaller than yours buy the looks of things i had to remake a manifold to suit as my carb would not fit inside the frame i will post some pictures of it later on in time . I see you made a bracket to hold the top of the center jack plate to the frame . I have made a similar one myself ( coinsidence ) but i had alot of trouble when trying to start with the engine dropping and the chain coming loose . Dosent happen now though i made bracket to suit . You bike looks sick man not many people around doing full suspension bikes !
