    Finally the day is here. My bike is assembled and ready to go. I took it on it's maiden run and it performed as advertised.
    I am so happy with the end result.
    Take a look and let me know what you think.

    I like this setup... Does it run on a belt?

    That's a Golden Eagle 40cc kit, a real growler.

    First time I've seen the front strap angle put on that way, the nut sometimes gets in the way, I know.

    I always rec. the shock absorber zip ties on that strap, like in your other thread.

    Hey SS, I couldn't make it zoom enough to see, what is holding on your throttle near the grip?

    Yes it's a belt drive.
    To respond to your suggestion bama...I plan on doing the zip tie safty measure but I have to get to the hardware store for a metal drill bit and some more zip ties first.
    As for whats holding on the throttle...the clip that came with the kit was a tad cheesy and loose so I used a piece of rubber around the bar then I double zip tied it really tight. I plan on finding a better clip for that at the hardware store as well.
    So far so good though.
    Wait till you see the hood ornament I put on her :D

    My throttles are on the inside of the handlebars, facing me.

    What I get is a small radiator clamp, grind a tad off the end so it slips in that throttle slot.

    Then, to fill in that "gap", under the throttle, I put on a zip tie or two, snip them. It holds the thottle trigger on the edge of the grip, and at a better angle than it has without those zip tie shims.
