Welcome Dixiedevil!

You will probably have more luck if you ask questions in the "tech" section or the "General questions" area.

There are a couple of bikes here I think, with a briggs type engine.

I gave B'ham/Jeff Co a 4 day ride-about last July, over the Mtn twice via Mtn Brook/Green Springs/Alford/Bluff Park....

Anyway, happy to help.

new from AL

whats up every one. im new here and finally starting on my project involving a stingray chopper and a 200c carter motor.. suprisingly that fits snuggly in the gap...Im presently stuck on a few issues. mainly the brake and electrical situation. THe brake is the most important i trying to figur eout what is the best route for me in that would it be cheaper to buy the hub and the disc kit and do it myself. which i odnt htink would be a problem or for $180-200 (kit&installation) the bike shop down the street will do it... im basically trying to save money here... Im htinking i will just get the guys down the street to do it but i mean Suggestions are mroe than welcome
