There is no travel on the throttle. Is it done right?

The chain guard thinks it's a machete. Further thoughts on how to make it act just as a guard?

I've put in a mixture of 16:1 as recommended by the Chinese, yet the bally thing still won't start. Why?

Will I be legal riding this thing, even though I've asked the police and they don't know either.

That should be a question for any Brits on here. Insurance too. What are your experiences please?

As an aside, and as this seems to be predominantly an American forum, can you please tell us who was on the grassy knoll?

Don't worry about the police in England, they're not allowed to carry sidearms.
I'm not sure you should be riding a motorized bike if you can't assemble it by yourself. You might hurt yourself....
