Default Hi From Altamonte Springs, Florida!!!

About a year ago I rescued an injured Jaguar from a dumpster here in Florida. It had a broken derauler, chain, and a mangled Fender but otherwise was brand new. I was planning to fix up the bike and had never even heard of motor bikes. While trying to locate some parts for this bike I entered "Jaguar Chain guard" into Google and discovered this site. After lurking a couple weeks, and since I had both a Giant motorized bicycle and Giant Roadbike for regular bikes, the Jag would be a good candidate for a motorbike. Anyway, I ordered a Grubee 80cc kit from Bikeberry, the manic mechanic engine mount and bought some duplicolor ford blue paint per 2Door's suggestions. FEDEX delivered the motor today!!! Now the question is should I wait for the motor mount to arrive, or should I put the bike together tonight to ride this weekend and later "upgrade" the mount?!?!? Also, I painted the tank and chainguard over lunch... What is a good gas resistant and heat resistant clearcoat to put over the tank? Also with this combo are there any other upgrades I should consider at this stage and as a casual rider?
