Wink Re: bgf 48/49cc kit?

Yeah, I have the slant 49, but just finsihed the build TODAY and don't think I'll get it tested. It's only 50 degrees, even in Florida.

I'm wondering, mostly over whether it can handle the 34 tooth sprocket I put on the back.

I expect good results from the carburetion system though, because I just put the short alloy billet intake on my 66 cc cruiser, and moving the carb close to the head must be the reason for the significant improvement- it winds up at will now, even though I don't often get up to 2 stroking at open throttle (that one's got a 36 toother)

I've bought a number of things from BGF and they always get here quickly- a 32 I bought is a little wide, and will only take a 415 chain, while the 36 I got elsewhere is made from a narrow BMX sprocket.

After I get this Schwinn Traveler with the slant 49 going, and if it will pull the 34, I'm changing the back wheel of the cruiser to 27 x 1 1/4 too, and I'll probably be trying the 32 on that.

The slant 49 shipped with a nice offset 41 tooth sprocket I'll fall back on, if all else fails. I'm pretty big, but the bike has 1 1/4 tires and weighs less than 40 lbs.

Heres the bikes, the new billet intake on the 66, and my Peugeot PX10 I put a new rear derailleur on last night and have to test/adjust.

good luck with it
