    My names Matthew, Live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This would be my second bike but my first official build. My first bike was built for me and was bought not knowing what was wrong with it. Few days later stopped working. Found out when I opened the head that the piston was shot and there were shavings all in the cylinder. Well I junked that motor and carpy bike and now Im building my own. I got the motor off ebay from a Boygofast seller. Its a 80cc motor with a centrifical clutch and a pull start. Heres the Bike and the motor.

    Welcome Matthew. Will you need the wide crankset for that motor? It's an centrifugal clutch isn't it?

    Yah it is an autoclutch but still has the clutch the motor started with. So really 2 Clutch options. And with the Crank. Im just gonna fabricate to widen them. Im hoping to have the motor this friday. Weathers getting better here so I need to do something besides working.

    G'day Matthew & welcome to MBc.
    I'm interested to hear your thoughts about your clutch and pull start.Since your building this from new it would make a teriffic thread for other members to follow your progress.
