Default Re: First motor bicycle

I'm not sure about the bike but if you have a rear fender you will probably have to notch it so the chain will clear. You must also be careful to get the drive sprocket centered when you install it. Otherwise the chain will vary between too tight and too loose. I would recommend a power drill and a dremel for tools in addition to basic hand tools. Also if I may add a quote from my first install: "6 hour install MY FUZZY BUTT!!!!" Which is to say the first one hardly ever goes smoothly. Just stop study each problem as it comes up and ask questions as needed. There are plenty of folks here that are more than happy to help. Good luck!

P. S. There is a way to mount to oversize tubes using muffler clamps. Be sure to find that thread!
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
