I like the look of your bike it reminds me of a cafe racer.

If I were you I would try to get your carburetor more level to the ground. From your pictures I don't see a easy way to do that but I would defiantly put my thinking cap on to get it more level.

I can see the electrical isn't hooked up and the seat rear brace isn't mounted

Waiting on RacerX to tell us whats up with his bike

Thanks guys it took Me a bit to learn how to reply and post the pics. My first problem is the wide crank and the sprocket, The sprocket sits really far out towards the crank arm and the free wheel hub on the wheel is close to the center of the bike. Is there some kind of spacer to get the freewheel sprocket more towards the frame? Seems like the chain might slip off the sprocket if not aligned properly.

The wires are not hooked up yet due to the charging system I am building. I bought a 5 wire rectifier and an additional 12V charging coil for the magneto. Next I will need a battery and was wondering what the best choice would be for the 12V battery and any possible recommendations for a 12v LED headlight and taillight.

There's no chain on it in picture .Wondering
Offset problem between the wide crank sprocket and the rear freewheel sprocket being so close to the center of the wheel, I think I may need to space the freewheel sprocket more outwards towards the frame.

Thanks for the tips! I'm a long way from getting it running. Yes Cafe Style !!! I bought the fairing from ebay for $35.00 to see if I liked where I am going with this idea and yes I LOVE IT !!! Next I am going to install this TD125 front fairing.
