Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

The NOS Diamondback multi-speed cruiser frame arrived yesterday. It took 23 days via Parcel Post to reach me, but no probs with that.

The BIG problem is that the 6hp Robin/Subaru engine will NOT fit in there, even without the motor mount.

Soooo, I trial-fitted a Tanaka 47R engine in there, again without a motor mount. There's a LOT of room for this 2-stroker to fit in there w/a 4-stroke shift kit, so I'll try that.

Harbor Freight is selling Predator 212cc engines for $99. Shipping fees usually kills the deal (up to $100 more). However, UPS-Ground is charging $6.99 freight for two 212cc engines, so I bought a pair of them.

Looking for a frame big enuff to fit the Robin or the Predator.
