thanks Toy, a friend gave me this fuji 21 speed and judging by the tread on the tires it was never used much. there very good on wet pavement . And yes this was a fairly simple build , nothing out of the ordinary but it sure is fun to build one and then ride it successfully with out getting hurt ya know.
Yea the v-belt mod was clever and I got the idea from this forum and yes they actually help quiet this motor down a few DB.
and now that you mention the chain I do need to take a few links out , I didnt notice till today just how wobbly it is , thx for pointing that out, it is on "to do list"
