I've added the Bear Trap pedals (silver instead of black) and I've been slowly getting the wiring done. Very slowly. I've also been buzzing around the block a few times trying to get a better idea of how to make the bike run better. Every few miles I take a few minutes and check the bolts, etc. I had a seat bolt drop out his weekend from vibration and that makes three including a front wheel nut and rear chain cog bolt. All very exciting but avoidable with some Loctite.

I do still have a sputtering issue (the bike, not me) as can be seen on the front engine mount. The cylinder has been decked, the gaskets are new, the bolts have been re-tightened a number of times to the point I'm concerned I'll strip them if I go any tighter. Not to thrilled with little two stroke. Any suggestions where to look or a link would appreciated.

Reconsidering the V-Twin and I'm thinking about a horizontally opposed twin like an old Douglas or Indian Model O. Just curious but has anyone ever tried mounting one of the larger displacement RC airplane engines on a MB?
