Default Re: Boise MB

This is number two. I started with a cranbrook frame. First did some chopping and welding to lower rear by 4.5 inches. A little bit of grinder to clean up welds and sanding. Primer, flat black. Assembly time: shorter crank to minimize pedal strikes, banana seat, 19 inch rise ape hangers with 4 bolt stem to hold em still, street cruiser tires on alloys, triple style shock fork with linear pull brake(coaster rear). Time for power: Skyhawk 48cc, 41 tooth sprocket, 25 inches of header. Obviously too loud, 'cause when I test ride it down the street this old lady makes a face like she's constipated bad. So I find this muffler that's new but for a briggs, and it has little perforations on the side for exhaust gases to exit, making the backpressure I need. Add another foot of pipe and this crazy fat muffler and its done. Before I had 20 miles on it my brother shows up, forces me to sell it to him, and takes it to Oregon. So I am left with no MB. Hmmm. Time to Build!
