I am totally worn out from what should have been a cinch. I started with a Vista delivery bike with great rims, heavy spokes, and triangle frame. First, the engine had to have a 1/2" spacer milled for the rear mount to get it off the chainguard. The bars had to be drilled to mount the throttle. The exhaust pipe had to be torched to bend it to miss the front downtube. The throttle and clutch cables were 9" too long and had to be shortened. The nice wide fenders had to be hacked unmercifully to clear the chain and guard. The chainguard had to have a fancy mount to clamp the rear to the frame. Finally I am ready to fuel it up and see if I can afford to tag and insure it
