Default My first power assit project

Well we did it! I've been reading this forum for a short time as I was considering building a motorized bicycle. Shortly after reading we ordered an 80cc motor kit.

Just finished my initial test fit yesterday. Took er out for two short 10 min drives and out today for a 20 min drive with varying speeds to try and break this engine in right. Still don't have the tune quite the tune quite right at least it doesn't sound that way. But then again with 16:1 oil mix maybe it is closer than I think. This bike will get treated to some custom paint and still a shift kit to go yet. Cash says the shift will wait a bit though. New cassette with 34 low is on the way, hopefully that will help as riding with my wife this thing won't go slow enough without complaining. Of course we won't run that low very often :-)

I wasn't sure how well I'd like this... but I"m hooked big time! This is awesome
