Default Re: hub breaks?

Thanks to all that answered. The install went ok. It took me about a day and a half to get it done and to adjust everything. The funny thing was that the coaster(hub) breaks were not near as much trouble as the carb. There was not enough room in the frame to mount the carb on the intake pipe. So I went down to my friendly Low's home improvement warehouse and picked up some heavy duty 1/2 inch hose. I used about 6 inches to extend the intake out under the seat and used heavy duty cable ties to secure it. Worked like a charm. I have took it out on several rides. All is working great. I love the looks I get(motorized bicycles are rare here) when people realize there is an engine on the bike. And when I zip by other bicycles with ease. I think I found a new passion....billy
