My 1st Motored bike build.

Well i finally decided to purchase a engine kit for a beach cruiser. I found the cruiser on facebook marketplace for $25, and it was delivered. turned out to be a brand new bike. As for the engine kit i went with a zeda 80 firestorm. I had one issue with the exhaust. it would not fit around the bikes front downtube. Tryed the motor adapter, didnt like it. ended up finally with a ball peen hammer.it`s there and not touching the frame now. i have not started it yet and still needs the chain on, besides its like 19 f outside. but i plan to get the flexpipe exhaust i guess. also gonna have to take some width out of the handlebars, damn. The wiring i`m hoping is good, it was all plug in play,ha i didnt ground to the frame. Is that necessary? and from where?

.....As for dude, ...... He has always pays for all the parts i get him. and i dont mind helping the dude out, and he`s always helping me out in return.

I have a friend I help in that same way. He is the one who got me into motorized bicycles. I used to always see him pushing his broken-down bike past my house. One day I decided to stop him to see what was up. Working on his bike sparked the interest for me. The rest is history. I became his personal bike mechanic but now he rides instead of pushes.
Keep on helping the dude.... nothing wrong with that.

Put a new cdi on dudes bike it has spark it will kinda run.bogs out. The crank seals were going out before all this happened. So I'm thinking it a lean bog. So I'm gonna put new seals in.see if that fixes it.

I received my 26x2.35 tire today. The other front tire was a 26x1.75. I still have a 26x2.125 on back. What a difference in the ride. I`m really liken the cnc 40tooth sprocket and adapter and also the rings on the windowed piston have seated in. On the test ride earlier I was hitting 40mph easily and seemed like it had more to go. So far this huffy cranbrook with a zeda triple 40 firestorm with a windowed piston ,reed, and F2 thrust pipe, and a 75 jet in the carb and the needle clip at the 2nd from the bottom notch ( i`m at 1000ft altitude) is a blast. Thanks for all the advice everyone on this 1st build. The only thing i might do to it is paint it. Kinda like the thought of useing shadow chrome blackout coating. the chrome rims, forks, sprockets and also over the candy red frame. i think putting it on the motor would be a dumb thing to do, Or would it?
