Gonna look good, glad you got no issues. I won't shop on their website. If I ever bought anything from them, it would be from their ebay store.

Looked around a little for a gasbike review thread and didn't find one so here is my review.

Placed my order at 3:30pm est and had a shipment notification around 7pm. Parts where here on Wednesday and packaged food enough for no damage. Payed with PayPal and had zero issues. Maybe I got lucky, maybe because I used PayPal. Will shop with them again.
Always use paypal.

I fought with them for almost a month to replace a gas tank that came in rusted and chipped, and THREE MONTHS to get 2x stainless hardware kits that never shipped. Once my email mentioned a charge back, they were in the mail lol.

Acid etched the frame, fork tubes, handlebars and seatpost then primed with Spraymax 2k primer. Used 2 cans! Doesn't go far at all. No pics because it looks like a bomb went off in my shed lol. I also used a spray galvanized coating on the inside of the electrical box. We use it at work on all the rigid conduit and unistrut where it gets cut. Has the same corrosion resistance as hot dipped.

Have to order more primer and probably more clear coat.

That's some nice work, props on the dropouts! That primer shows off all the neat little cable routing tricks you employed as well as the reinforcements. Looking forward to seeing how this beast turns out.

Why does it look like there is a slight dent in the down tube maybe a foot above the bottom bracket?
Even with the wide front mount on the zeda it wasn't wide enough. The new style Cranbrook has a 1 3/4" down tube. I don't use mounting brackets. Made a sanding drum to widen the mount on the engine but the studs didn't clear. Used a hammer and made it fit lol.
