there is good wisdom here.... I have regretted sometimes the damage it caused the frame. it was my first motorized bicycle and I didn't know any better. now I build beater bikes that are used from craigslist. as long as you are very careful you can keep the damage to a minimum and produce a very beautifull bike in the process.
it sure was fun though!!!! no guts no glory.
in hindsight.... you could remedy the problem by finding a way to shim a ring of steel in between the muffler clamps provided in the jackshaft kit, and the soft aluminum frame.
