Default Re: My Build Is Done! Whacha think?

Very clean nice looking bike TBNut

I'm a sucker for anything RED so I really like the fact that you went with a red bike, Red is faster ya know....LOL!

Only thing I would like for you to do, is please pay very close attention to the idler/tensioner bracket, when they're only clamped to the frame and not drilled so a small sheet metal screw can be inserted through both, they are prone to rotate into the spokes sometime while starting the engine, this can be a big wreck for the rider and for the spokes in the rear wheel.

Please dont take this that I'm being critical in any way because I'm not at all , I really like your work on this bike, I just know what a mess that idler/tensioner can cause if it rotates inward on you and gets into the spokes.

Great job TBNut, ride safe and have a ball on that rascal.

Peace, map
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
