Default Might as well get a thread started...

No engine yet (kit should be here in a couple of days) but I figured I'd go ahead and start a discussion on the bike and the build.

The bike is a long thing that I've been tooling around the neighborhood with when the kids go out on their scooters.

77 in wheelbase, 24 in seat height, 26x2.4 on the rear, 24x2.125 up front.

I contemplated putting a Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub on the rear with a Sturmey sportshift shifter modified into a jockey shift for the thing but decided to go the powered route and get one of the 80cc (I know, they're only 70cc) kits off eBay.

I know that I'll end up modding this thing to make it look the way I want so I figured I'd get started with a build thread.
