Default New build, very tight fit, intake fabrication.

Well, I've had a new schwinn link city series bike for a while and I finally got around to motoring it up with a pull start 66cc slant head that I've had for a while also, wow if I would have known that it would have been such a tight fit I'd just went with another bike but I'm gonna get it done and it will be a much more comfortable bike than my old mountain bike, below is a pic of the intake I had ti make because there isn;t enough room after the engine is mounted to fi the carb. it doesnt look like much but it's the best I could do for a quick fix for now, my pie bender is not for the thin wall tubing and crimps it at the bend point so this makes it look a little rigged, now I just need to drill my carb jet a little more becuase the long tube has made it run just a little on the lean side, havent rode it yet but when it idles it will surge up and then slowly back down in RPM's. but I'll get it tuned and then I'm gonna put a 39 or 40 sprocket and hub adapter from Jim " manic Mechanic ", I'll post some good pics of it when it is all done, I'm kinda excited about this one, this will likely be my ride to work this summer which is 16 miles one way.
