    This is my first build. it took about 9-10 hrs to get everything tuned and the way i like it.
    The hardest part was the chain and sprocket alignment. The chain would ride on the tensioner and would cuase the tensioner to move into my spokes..
    So i had to drill another bolts through the frame to make a bracket.
    The throttle from Powerking sucked. But i got it to work.
    Good kit
    I love my moon dog, Im breaking it in right now.
    I ordered a 49cc from PowerkingShop on .

    here are some pics:

    Welcome to the ranks of Moondog owners. Nice looking ride. Little advice on them is add you a springer front end and it smooths it out real nice OH and watch those fender braces.

    oh yeah man, those fenders are flimsy..

    I got to bend my back fender a little bit, becuase the chain was kinda grazing it..

    i love riding this bike.
    how long before i can take this thing off to the roads.. A gas tank?

    Yeah I had the same problem with my Schwinn Suburban, the tensioner would just turn into the spokes. Finally I just drilled a small hole thru it and made a set screw to stop that. NICE looking bike.

    Can you inform me about adjusing the clutch, whenever i pull the lever down, it works perfectly, but when i lock my lever in place i can feel the drag of the motor still trying to pull

    I could never get that type of clutch lever to work well for me. I stopped using that pin. Drag on the clutch and would cause it to slip.

    also, wow ive been riding for a good 15-20 miles over two days, and i havent put any grease on the right side gears..

    Should i use moly grease, and dab some on each gear, ( very thick )

    or i do have amsoil sever gear 75w-90 ( more like oil not as think)

    which should i dab on there

    Use the moly grease; oil will lubricate your clutch pads, the opposite of what you want.

    That is one fantastic looking bike. I have been browsing all the great photos here and this is my favorite. Runner up would be an army-style bike I came across.

    Yup, that's a great looking bike. I kinda wanted the Moon Dog or the Schwinn Point Beach.
    But I had to buy a bike for my wife's build. Went with the Kulana "Makamaka" single speed beach cruiser. 24" wheels. Made for a fine looking bike.

    But at that point, the cash outlay was getting a bit heavy. So I just used an old ten-speed I had lying around for my bike. But one day this engine is going to be on a Moon Dog or a Point Beach. Then my grin will be even bigger.

    Well i took the fenders off because they rattled like crazzzzzzyyy... And i also fixed my chain problem, i dont run a tensioner anymore..
    I also added a Battery charged (C) headlight...

    I think it still looks good w/o the fenders

    buts its still boggin and slugish in low-mid rpms.. Should i mess with the needle jet, pilot jet ???
