Default Finished the 212cc predator build

So finally ive been able to ride my motorized bike. It was built in house by myself with about $260 in parts, material, and the motor. So far ive rode it about three times for id say around a mile. Did its first burnout tonight as well haha Im pretty impressed with the ingenuity that goes into these creations. ive had a blast with it so far and about three of my buddies want their bikes to be converted. Its taken about a week to build ( not counting waiting for parts) Monday , create and fabricate the motor mounts/jackshaft mounts. Tuesday kinda go over the bike change a few things around, create brake mounts, add other things. Wednesday test ride the bike, make sure everything works in unison, dissasemble and prep for paint. Thursday Paint. let it dry! Friday reassemble and back on the road for minor adjusts to brake / throttle. I think this is a simple yet fun project for any sort of gear head. To be honest ive never touched a bike or had any intention on doing this but i had the motor and i had the bike so why not. Hopefully ill be able to put some real miles on it in the future !
