Re: New motor new bike
Hi Schwinncruiser, welcome.
To mount the engine on my point beach, I removed the peddle chain guard and used a mallet to thin (read beat into submission) the down tube. The seat post just barely fit and snugged down nicely when tightened. The material used to make these engines files very well. The other night I was thinking on my next build to custom fit the mounts. There are better methods then "Mallet Engineering" and removing the guard, Just how I did it. Had no issues with the engine drive sprocket clearing the tire.
Very important, the front fender mount needs to be shored up or completely remove your fender. The lil "L" bracket holding the fender fails rather quickly and makes for a very dangerous situation.
