do i need to change the wheels to fir discs or just buy hubs with the disc fitted??
Update on the bike!
I have mounted it all correctly and loctited everything!!!
runs smooth now!! fitted a BP6HS plug and NGK wire...runs like a dream!
just have to get a better exhaust (expansion chamber), fix my kinked back wheel, Jet the carby to 84 (from memory), fit disc brakes and buy a jackshaft kit
then i will start a 4 stroke 50cc 3 speed semi auto cruiser!!!
