Default aaa!

Hello from Salem, Or! I have been following the forum for a few Weeks now and just finished my first build- a huffy Panama jack with a 66cc motor kit. I read alot of bad things about huffy, but this bike has been just fine. My problem has been the crappy parts from the kit. Out of the box my throttle casing with the kill switch was broken and the kit was missing several screws. After getting around several obstacles (including accidentally disassembling the rear wheel hub, ruining it, and having to buy a whole new back wheel) I finally got my bike running. I got to ride it for about two days before the muffler fell out and one of the studs mounting it to the frame snapped off. I am now severely discouraged but haven't given up! I bought 5 pieces of sheet metal with the intent of making some sort of cradle for the motor. Before I spend the next 18 hours scraping my knuckles andcrying in the mirror does anyone have any helpful advice? Thank you!
