Re: Skyhawk frame build / thoughts
Found a good bike shop in Charleston today. Got a new 18t freewheel, a 31.8mm seat clamp, and I'm going back to get a dual brake lever. Also had to make a stop at a TrueValue store for some 6mmx1.0 100mm studs. Got the engine mounted, left sprocket on, and a couple other small issues taken care of. Need a brake cable and the dual pull, so I'm out to gather more parts.
I did ride the bike before mounting the engine (have to make sure it bicycles properly, of course). This has to be one of the smoothest bikes I've ever ridden! I'm starting to like the shock forks, so they might stay. And there is next to zero chain noise. I'm really pleased with this thing.
