Whatever you go with make sure it doesn't have a clutch lever, the bike has independent hydraulic disc brakes.

And I can paint it because I'm not building it on this ugly charcoal gray main frame.
It is far from a rolling frame however.

Man it sure has a beefy swingarm/jackshaft, real motorcycle quality, and look at those welds!
Some instructions would have been nice.
The only instructions I got are how to deal with the hydraulic disc brakes, it's kind of like a jigsaw puzzle with no picture on the box top at the moment but I'm a clever guy and may have it to a 'rolling frame' by the weekend.
