Re: My Dad didn't believe me when I told him this engine would fit in my frame...
No, the frame is all there, there is a piece of pipe slid over it to provide space for the cables to pass under the gas tank. It might be a pain to work on, but anything will be better than my old engine, which forced me to work on it (by breaking down) every few weeks. I am planning to build this one right so that I don't have to work on it much. I just finished the first part of the mounting system, which involves 3/16" steel plates and 3/8" threaded rods, I feel like I'm way over-engineering it because the mounting bolts were the last straw for my old engine, but better safe than sorry. And the giant bolts make it look more badass lol!
