    Hi, thanx for the warm welcoming!.

    hey guys thanx for the welcoming!.
    i have a small problem that i need a little help with!
    problem is mounting the engine, i looked into importing a mount from ebay (U.S) i am in Australia and no one here makes and sells any and it would cost too much in shipping just for one motor mount!. so any ideas on how to mount the engine to bike would be great!.

    G'day man and welcome to MBc.
    Do that(post pics) and if u get into any trouble just ask in the appropriate section,but it's VERY important to READ through previous threads.Not only for mounting the engine but for mechanical help which your certain to need when u start to get it running.....it's all a good learning curve.

    Nice Stingray! I'm in love with those things. Looks like you removed your rear breaks did you replace them with a coaster brake? I think you need at least a rear reflector to be street legal, shouldnt be hard to throw one on. I was able to clear the rear fender on mine by cutting a chunk out of the front left portion so the chain wouldnt rub or catch. Looks great the only thing I dont like is the smokestack. It needs either a long pipe or you could at least point it down. If its not clearing the pedals theres a thread around here that describes the best way to bend an exhaust.
    Nice work, good to see another 'ray motored especially since they're discontinued and all. Be safe watch out for sand on the road while turning with that long rake. have had a few close calls myself on an XL.
