Well folks, after starting last Thursday, tearing down the bike, lubing all the bearings, fabricating fender brackets, motor mounts, gas tank brackets, and a ton of other modifications, I just straddled the bike at about 3
m this afternoon, pedaled across the yard, popped out the clutch and the liíl beast sprung to life. After a few laps around the house and several stops to adjust the clutch cable, I took to the road for about a two mile shake down with my neighbor behind on his brothers 50cc store-bought scooter. The bike performed great!
Congrats on your successful build!!
I don't visit this site very often due to the limitations on pic downloads- (and I am a pic addict), but I pretty much wrote a complete tech manual on my build specific to only the Moondog.
Sounds like you have a pretty good handle on your build, but if you ever need any assistance, feel free to email or PM me. I would be glad to help.
Let's see a pic or two of that Bad Dog!!
Cool mod's to consider for a better ride:
better seat, I got a Schwinn comfort seat - love it!
2 in 1 brake lever - much easier control - less stress.
dual side kickstand - no more worries about the bike falling over due to weight displacement.
Here's a couple pic's of mine for some other ideas to consider:
