I bet there is a better way then these pieces of rubber squeezing the spokes... Clutch is on but the cable needs to be shortened. The throttle is together but I need to get a drill to make the hole in the handle bar, also that cable needs to be cut to the right length. Carburetor is together and mounted to engine and the coil is mounted with a couple zip ties.
The gas tank has an issue as the bolts are not long enough to reach the brackets... a fat top tube. I am going to solve this with different brackets that can bend around to reach the bolts. The only other thing is the chain... Everything looks like it lines up but only time will tell. Tomorrow I have to work so only a few hours in the morning to see if the chain will spin.
Hey Hardcore, Welcome to the forum. I think you will find this is the right place to be as your build progresses. But, Now that you have introduced yourself this may not be the thread you need, as 2door has already suggested, figuring out problems you may have with your build. There's not many questions that haven't already been asked, and answered, somewhere on this forum. Once you start using the search button I think you'll find it addictive.
Good luck with your build and please don't be afraid to ask any question at all, Simply search for the proper thread for it. You may find your answer without even having to ask it.
