So, this is my official intro thread. I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and just finished installing a 70cc ebay kit onto a greenline bc-706. I've put about 40 miles on the bike so far and the most important thing I've learned is that rubber between the engine mount and frame is not a good idea. Got that stuff outta there and it runs pretty well now. My main goals are to change to a smaller rear wheel sprocket (already ordered a 35 tooth from jack's small engines) and try to reduce the chain noise/drag as much as possible. Here's some pics:

welcome to MBc!!!
that looks like a nice, solid build.
thats a nice frame for a motor.
did the motor arrive black, or is that you?
dont feel bad, most of us toyed with rubber mounts, too.

I painted the motor myself with Dupli-Color flat black High Heat w/ ceramic in it (says its good for up to 1200F) and polished the clutch, magneto and sprocket covers... like I've seen elsewhere on this forum.

It just has that 1940's Harley look to it, with the handlebar placement. Sweet bike dude! I really like it!

Great job! That's a beautiful bike. Thanks for the heads up about the rubber mounts and the info on the paint.
