Default Re: checking in from Western Ma.

well, my project hit a few snags last night
the bottom tube on the Giant is far too wide to mount the engine without substantial modifications witch we found out after the rear sprocket was assembled at about 11:00 pm
so with a couple quick calls to friends looking for suitable donor bikes I was able to trade my friend Chris a beer and a chance to ride it when it was done for a complete 1960s or 1970s Columbia in working order

by 2:00 am we called it a night but we have
the sprocket mounted
engine in
controls on
cdi on
wiring done
tank on
I have to shim the rear tire because we are having some rubbing issues chain to frame wise

I have to grab a chain break and some fuel today
and with any luck I will have some youtube videos up
