hello all, from Kentucky
hey friends, greetings. im from eastern ky, got into these bikes to fight gas prices. so far i've built 3. two are 2 strokers, 1 is a 4 stroke. found out how much fun it is to ride again after many years. will try to up some pics..
the third picture shows a brace i added to all my bikes after experiencing problems with the motor mounts. the mounts are located below the sprocket so the sprocket torque gets a leverage effect and puts a lot of strain on the mounts. the upper brace compensates for the torque and relieves the strain on the lower motor mounts. i've had good luck with this setup and no longer worry about the mounts.
