Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Finally had the time to break out the bike I bought before the summer. Bought it from a guy that couldn't keep the chain on it, but said it ran. The downside, it hasn't run in a couple of years. I took off the head and checked for corrosion, none. Checked the gastank, none. Got a new chain that doesn't really fit the drive sprocket. After some searching of the boards, turns out I need to force the chain on and make it play well with the sprocket. The bike is extremely hard to pedal and the chain and sprocket make the worst noise I've ever heard. I'm not so sure that it is ready to gas and go. This bike is like Frankenstein's monster, barely held together with nuts and bolts and made from about 2 or 3 different bikes. This is going to be the scariest ride ever... wish me luck!
