Default Re: Panama Jack (old school rat rod) with custom stake bed trailer

Thanks for the complements.....Its not exactly ratty.....

We have had a weeks full of great weather here and Ive been riding the heck out of this bike ....Ive smoked two gas tanks full and this bike has not had a glitch....It rides very smoothly for a ridged bicycle frame....I can peg the clutch in and coast no handed for a while...Makes all that time greasing the hubs well worth it....also locktighted everything .....most bolts I figured wont ever be coming off were jb welded in.....vibration from the motor and road are minimal....Im glad I took the time to do these things......

People hate buying Chinese stuff but I will say this motor was easier to performance tune than any German, Italian , Slovak moped motor ive built.....all I had to do is raise the port windows ever so slightly....I do think a 20mm VM mikuni carb would be better than the one I got ,really only because it would pep up the low end and make for easy jet changing.I know the stock intake sucks and the maniac intake will not work , so if i have to build one it will fit the mikuni for a side type intake with a huge air filter.I think will work and look cool....

I gps top speed @ 32 mph and that feels fast on this huffy,kinda scarey thinking a pot hole could ruin your day/life.......
