    Finished another one Saturday PM 3/8/08 80cc HT. Only put 2 miles on it. Too early to tell what bugs I need to work out. Special features are toggled kill switch from blue wire (not shorting magneto) Added front caliper brake. Added tail light, blinkers, brake light. (not professional quality, purchased from ebay. Work great though) 64 spoke wheels. Horn, 72 LED headlight. Wireless speedometer, mirror, clutch lever roller modification (designed by Large Filipino) bearing chain tensioner from dax. Quality plug wire and boot. 19 hrs. labor. 10th build, they get easier the more I do.

    Please everyone, keep building and saturate the market to responsible riders. We need "power" in numbers. Its the way of the future. graucho

    Nice build man! It seems like everyone is doing this clutch lever mod!
     
  3. I totally like the way you did that clutch mount!

    Awesome work. Everything fits together really nice! Looks really comfy with that seat and those swept back handlebars.

    I too like that clutch mod! Bet it operates smoother. Any other benefit with it? I often wondered what folks in Minnesota do all winter. If it's anything like Iowa, we just mark off days on the calender till spring. Very cool bike graucho, so shiney! Bet that will pull the hills quite nicely too. Have fun!

    That's a great looking bike.
    It put mine to shame.

    Are the blinker visable during the day?
    Where did you buy them?

    Yes, they are visable during the day. So is the break light. There not professional quality. They work good though for the price. 10.00 with shipping. Main reason for having them is if I get pulled over, I can say I have blinkers and a brake light and a horn. Here's a link through e-bay. p.s. all bikes are beautiful! graucho

    Graucho's bike is almost TOO good looking for this forum.

    This bike and the John Deere one should be on another site, like promotoredbikes.com.

    I have the same exact turn signal/horn/brake light, I'm in an agreement, they are definatly not professional lights, very cheap made and the horn sounds are horrible. One of the LED's burnt out in a day. I basically got it and threw it in the trash. Not recommended and not worth the 10 bucks IMO

    That's a beautiful bike Graucho! Great work. What kind of bike is it? I saw the tiles under the kick stand. I have to do that with my schwinn Jag or it will flip. I have a dual kickstand on the way.

    Pretty work Graucho! Large Filipino deserves Big Kudos for that clutch mod and our respect as motored bikers. You keep saturating the market...if they all look that good, you'll have buyers knocking your door down...well done.

    Purchased at

    This bike is a medium priced bike, but its very solid. Ive bought several bikes from bikebuyers.com and put HT engines on them. The cruisers ive purchased ive put front brakes on for added stoping power. If a person needs a high end bike, keep looking. But I try to keep my costs down to 400.00 for the total project including upgrades. Thats why ive purchesed here. Straight wheels, good welds, good bearings. No problems with shipping yet . (4bikes) O ya, I love looking at garage sales for them too. (50.00 max)

    Hate to be a burdon, but, how much more easier does the clutch lever have to be to pull it with a finger, I can pull mine and always do with the duel brake lever on the same side with it being stock with 1 finger. I don't know if i have mine set up just right or what , but it can't get any easier than the way i have it. Very smooth and easy being stock.
