Default Re: My First Build

Thx guys, He's really loveing it and im jealous lol.. I'm gonna start working on a bike for me soon. I got the bike but its an old steel cruiser that Im redoin from the ground up. On this first build I really took my time, like 6 days on or off. Making sure everything was nice and tight.. Thread locker and then works.. Even installed some battery operated lights for him ... Just a 15 dollar set from wally world... There LED and talk about bright.... Now that chain tensionior was a real booger. Im not fond of the set up.. but so far so good. I might go with a spring loaded one later. Be fore he recieved the bike I made sure that everything was up to par and working correctly... Ran 2 tanks of gas through at 20-1 , and some full throttle at times. Seems all is good and I make sure to give it a once over everytime he comes in from a ride and go through specific things to look for to keep him safe..My new moto is "No helmet No shoes no ride" but he's all good with it..

Thanks again everyone for all hard work people put in here at MB. Its made this build a breeze with all the tips and info...
A mans mind once stretched by a new idea never regains its original dimension. Hmmmm ?
