Default Re: Now I Have Two Half Frames!!!

Here are some pics of what used to be a weed whacker / leaf blower FD. I ran into some problems when trying to mount the HT. Namely, the motor wouldn't clear the crank sprocket. I remedied this by using part of the chain tensioner as a motor mount spacer. It's mounted up tight and sturdy. I'll just have to see how it reacts to vibration. There may be some loctite in my near future.

Using part of the chain tensioner left me with a loose pedal chain, but at least I no longer have to worry about a dive-bombing, spoke-eating, bike-stopping chain tensioner. All I need now is a half-link for the pedal chain, a new CDI, and some new gaskets for the gearbox and magneto cover. I'll just use the press and trace method on some gasket material.

Well, here are some pics of how it's coming along. I like the handlebar from the red frame much better, for both looks and ergonomics, so the chrome one may not be on there much longer.
