Default Re: Hello, new to building

Welcome to the forum. I'm in Katy.The Panama Jack should provide a straight fwd build.
These machines are all about the basics, like keeping you bolts tight, etc (especially the chain and motor mounts). Keeping a 10mm wrench on the bike will tighten most of it.
If the Jack doesn't have a front brake, add one. A BMX caliper brake will fit over a fender and they are cheaper than going disk or drum.
Let me know if you get stuck in your build. I can give you a hand.
