Default Re: Skyhawk frame build / thoughts

So I had a few issues here and there to overcome, but a big thanks to you guys for helping me through them! This bike is fantastic. I enjoy riding it more than than the motorcycle now.

I had one more issue though... I confused the clutch cable and throttle cable and cut the carb end off the cable. A little quick thinking and a soldering iron fixed me up, but my wife came out wondering what in the world i was swearing about.

Amazingly, the first ride was absolutely flawless. 10 mph has been the max speed while i get it broken in. No carb problems, no chain problems, no sputtering or stalling. Just smooth sailing all around. The more i ride it, the quieter and smoother it gets.

Now I need some nice lights for it. Then once it's within the law for lights and broken in, I'll take it all apart and powder coat the frame.
