    OK, I was supposed to post these a long time ago, but I kept thinking I would wash my bike first. Well, now it's kind of clean. I washed it, but then I drove it to the beach again.

    Anyway, here is what it looks like now.

    Side view

    Custom exhaust made from two shower head extensions from Ace Hardware.

    Giant 60 tooth sprocket up front and 30 tooth in the back to get the chain to go over and under the motor, instead of mounting the motor above the chain.

    Thanks. I got about 500 miles on it so far, and it's a lot of fun to ride. I love the laid-back chopper seat placement.

    where is the gas tank?

    I sealed the top tube of the frame and used it as a gas tank. That's why you can see the red fuel line coming down from the frame to the carburetor.

    I didn't mean for the fuel line to be stretched tight. I installed new tubing a couple times, but I just realized that the tubing I have shrinks. Next time I replace it, I will have to try leaving a lot more slack to see how far it shrinks down.

    Hey Blaze!!! I really like what you did with this bike! It looks so smooth and uncluttered. Just very nice lines. I want to build one just like it really. I also wanted to thank you for posting alot of pics and details of your project. It makes me alot more confident that I can pull this off. Hope I can call on you if I run into any major snags? Anyway just wanted you to know that your work has inspired me to give this a try. Excellent job!! Hellbilly
