Default Re: **SIMS Canadian Cruiser build**

just a lil update on my build progress.....

Ditched the tensioner so much better! Shoulda done that from the start cuz not only is it safer and more reliable, but it looks sooo much better (see pic). Also I decided to pull off the fenders which completely transformed the look of the bike to a more sporty "badazz" kinda look. Also I lowered the seat tube anothe 3" so the bike has a really low seating position and makes the bike look even longer and sleeker IMO (see pic). I built a velocity stack for the intake out of an old auto muffler tip (not installed yet) and upgraded the plug again to an NGK B6HS and replaced the plug wire with some automotive 7mm wire. Hmmmm what else.......Oh I picked up the paint for the bike and motor/accesories and I will begin disassembling/painting tomo so ill keep ya posted on that. Finally i picked up a digi speedometer more outta curiosity than braggin rights, but on flat it will pull 59 km/h (36.66 MPH for you imperial folks) so for a motor with not even quite a tank of gas through it, im pretty happy with the results of the build so far!

Ill keep updating as things are progressing.
