Cool Dual Suspension 66cc - Kent Glendale CS Bike

Well what do yall think? No spokes to break, bend, or adjust. Dual suspension, AND it don't look funny with a rear mounted engine! I had to add an automotive clutch return spring, and modified the idler wheel to keep the chain on the sprocket. I'm adding "No-Mor-Flat" Solid Tubes also. I had to relocate the carb to under the seat on the post, because of clearance issues. The modified pocket bike carb was installed slightly offset, and linked to the intake manifold with 3/4" fuel resistant hose (I've got black on order). The killer here dudes, and dudetts are the wheels! Direct drive baby! All your engine torque goes DIRECTLY to the pavement, and not through your spokes stretching them out of shape! These wheels are much more rigid than normal spoked wheels, and they will resist flexing at high speeds,making a safer ride. The sprocket adapter is the key to the sprockets mounting. This wheel's setup requires the sprocket center hole to be enlarged to 53mm - 54mm to go over the hub. It took me a while to engineer the bugs out of this ride! Its darn near tooo pretty to ride!
