Default Re: Huffy Santa Fe Motorized Bicycle

I'm still not really done with the build. I have a few problems now. The first was that I read(venicemotorbikes ???) suggestion about coaster brakes needing a ton of bearing grease, never can use too much, words to that effect. He might be right on the money, but the result is bearing grease flying all over the place, like the white walls. I dont know what will get that off.

To fix the splatter, I wiped off the excess oozing out of the hub and made something out of string. The coaster brake arm and dust cap dont move, but trimming it allows it to ooze so I wrapped ordinary string around the cap until it covered the gaps. I dont know if it will stop the splatter, but I'm giving it a try. It seems better, but time will tell.
