Re: Black Lightning Build
I have got a bit further with the build. I have the bike painted. I mounted the motor, flipped the bars, Installed the throttle and clutch ,and hooked up the CDI. I had to grind the drop outs a bit to fit the new wheel axles. I also had to Grind the crank arm on each side to get enough clearance to clear the motor. My new wheels have a freewheel and not a coster break so I also put on a rear brake using an adaptor that converts a single mount brake into the duel cantilever style. The coolest thing I have done (at least to me) is that I chopped the seat and lowered it as low as possible. I am thinking of using only the rear rack as the rear support for the banana seat. It looks way cooler that way, but may not hold up. I will probably have to reinforce it. I still need to mount the sick bike parts expansion chamber and get a brake cable installed. Here are some picks!!!
