Thanks for posting this. Posting a link is far easier than typing the info over and over for the new guys.

We need more info to help. Is your bad a$$ two stroke a kit motor or will it require fabricated motor mounts?
You can order strong wheels from Husky. Sorry, I don't know the web address.
You need to decide what you want to build (beach cruiser, mountain bike, chopper, etc).
Unless you need welded motor mounts, try assembling the motorbike yourself. Godspeed.

you will find the kits are pretty easy to install just make sure what ever bike you get the middle of the frame is big enough, I do believe most beach cruzers are just keep in mind the bigger the middle the better ,
also get some Kevlar tire for is I had 3 flats in 2 months put the Kevlar tires on 4 months ago haven had a flat since

Just a note...
That is not a very sound front mount Al.
You have a flat piece on a round tube simply squeezed down by a muffle clamp.

The proper way to mount with a muffler clamp is to bolt the connection piece to it.



To know if your engine is mounted right grab the top bar with one hand the engine head with other and back and forth on it AS HARD AS YOU CAN!
If it moves AT ALL, that is a fail, and by the look of Al's 3 or 4 good pushes and that would fail.

Note the front mount on my example is a SickBikeParts.com front mount, I like their Z metal piece as you can orient it up like the above pic but you can orient it down and use the included spacers to bride large gaps like this.



The main difference is that muffler clap gives you a 360 grip on the down tube and a flat spot for the plat to attach and all you really need is the right size muffler clap and some steel.

if you want a solid installation, a deadblow hammer is a great investment

Re: Help

Yeah the Beatles I'm the featured vocalist on most of the studio if not all studio recordings ..HEY ! it looks like your in no need of advise but you may look up my recent post you may get a few ideas I'm working on a cam just start one. The problem with these if you don't know mush about the engine is the factory crankshaft and connecting rod. You have a good start. The best your going to do with the engine is pull it back off and tear it down completely toss the factory crankshaft and have one spun out of 4340 forged one piece with a lighter set of counters and set up a two piece connecting rod sure and don't forget the forged piston. Sure why not cut a one piece cylinder and cylinder head too out of billet aluminum and of course don't forget the porting have that punched out of that billet OK your done all you'll need is a steel frame to mount that to likely when complete it will bend an aluminum frame. This it the basics without math without pure platinum turning on diamond set micro surfaces channel set in place of ":BALL BEARINGS" WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS ? BALL BEARINGS YOUR JOKING ME ?
