Default Re: Schwinn 68cc First Build!

That is a very nice, neat build you got there stretch. One small word of advice, don't rely on the kit pin connectors that come on the CDI to stay connected. Use some heat shrink on those suckers and you'll be glad you did, and I'm glad your tensioner is remaining tight for now but the problem is by the time it loosens up on you it'll be too late, it'll be in your spokes and you'll be lookin for teeth on the road. There are lots of variations and alternatives on the forum but the stock tensioner is crap and if you use it then you should at least bolt through the chain stay or screw through the tensioner bracket and into the stay with a small screw. Just food for thought, but great job on the bike. Is that factory paint or did you repaint it? Love the color.
