Has a death wish in Fl... (pix)
Hey all, I must be crazy, but here I am trying to build one of these two wheeled death machines. I'll mostly lurk, but chime in when my female sensibilities won't allow me to keep quiet. There are some very impressive bikes here, I feel like the neophyte that I am.
Some info on my build so far: Wmart Cranny, Velo seat, Titec **** Bent bars, 90* stem, Odyssey monolever, Diacomp canti brake with Eclat pads and generic rag joint rear sprocket. I've got a tank and petcock coming from 1977mopeds. My engine is a 2 stroke off of a 70's brush trimmer, the only info I could find on it is that it was made by Aircap Industries (Japan) and sold by Sears under the Craftsman label. The engine is 38cc's and has a cute lil' Mikuni carb. I'm in the process of sourcing parts to build a jackshaft so I can mount my little beast in the middle of my frame. I was going to use my track bike for this build, but decided I'd use the cheapie bike for the test mule.
