Preamble to this - I have had a basic straight kit-build in the past decade, and an aborted build that was much higher grade, that had i lost interest in/evolved into the build being documented right now.. over a 5 year time-span. I had stopped 'building' .. but i didn't stop monitoring/buying up parts to progress on another possible build. As such, in putting it all together when the project came back on the bench, i had minimum needed to buy, more a matter of pick and choose. In my...
 
This is now my 4th bike build and I wanted to show everyone as I go to get feedback. I was unhappy with my results on my last 3 builds. Also, I've found this forum to be a really helpful, friendly and informative community, anyway here it goes. So in excitement, I impulsively purchased the HD 2 stroke shifter kit at sickbikeparts.com I know now I wasnt fully processing that this kit is not a "jackshaft" which is fine because ultimately I didn't want the "jackshaft kit", i was wanting a...
 
Related to this post: https://motoredbikes.com/threads/preparing-a-new-build-on-a-schwinn-stingray-chopper-and-im-looking-for-some-advice.50872/ Donnor bike: Since this is not being an standard build (as expected) I'm going to describe how I'm solving the issues that I'm having, I hope it will be useful for someone. First thing, choosing the motor kit: after digging and asking around I decided to go for I ordered this kit...
 
This started with a stainless gas tank my friend dropped out of his truck. I reshaped and cut off the front to fit into a frame that was left over after my son raided for parts. Welded in a rear engine mount and front mount tabs through the frame. Engine is heavily ported with windowed piston, just got the reed valve for it. I plan on monarch type springer forks for the looks with front drum brakes but would be nice to get v brakes using forks I have. the filler neck on the tank is...
 
Hey everyone, just finished my build and thought I'd share. It's a Giant Escape 2 Disc, with hydraulic brakes. Threw a Staton on it and she looks great. Kind of wish I had a front suspension though. I wonder if those seat post suspensions help at all. It's been raining here in FL every damn day so haven't gotten a ride in yet. But tomorrow should be clear. Going to go on a nice ride and break in the engine and enjoy the elements. Hopefully it's more reliable than my china kit on my...
 
(what you will see in the next few posts is a copypaste dump of an another forum on which I've already started documenting on this build, posts henceforth will be written on this forum platform and will likely make more sense) This is a project that`s been lingering in the back of my head for years and years but since I don't want to build anything I cannot use in other than restricted areas never went forward with it. That is until I recently learned that if it`s done within a certain set...
 
The New 4 stroke kit prototype from the NTJL factory 4sc Speedster's Blackie Special 3/8" mounting plate (pat. applied for for), I Helped with the design of the double wide timing chain and dual sprockets on each end.. 2(side by side) for the engine output and 2 side by side for the countershaft output sprocket. This Gear Box also features inner and outer collar carrier bearings two in front and two in the output shaft assembly. This is SOLID as far as I can see so far! The Lady and I...
