You have built a very nice motorized bicycle Missmichelleb! You are also a step ahead of most newbies in the fact that you are aware of loosing hardware and you have the aptitude to check all of them on a regular basis. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the saying goes.....
GearNut - Thank you, safety is my over all goal. From looking at my pictures can you tell if the bottom of my fuel tank is high enough? And/or do you have suggestions on how to adjust the gas tank to prevent fuel problems?
