Default New member new bike kit old bike

Hi all,
I just wanted to say this is all new to me. Although I'm a motorcycle mechanic/painter. I had an old bike sitting around and found these kits on line that were affordable. So I put one together last week.
My truck gets 9 mph, My motorcycle gets 38 mpg, And this gets ??? but I use a combo of the motorcycle and bike to go to work.
I'm semi retired and broke and only work 3 days a week so this is a great rider and fun also. (plus a lot cheaper than the motorcycle)

I added a crude choke cable

Made my own strong tensioner

A really crude choke lever

I tried to make smaller pics, but I'm not familiar with photobucket
I just wanted to get it running to use it. It'll take a lot of tinkering when I'm not playing with the motorcycle.
