Default Re: Military style build.....

"Bugs," that is the fun part of the builds, trying to find an easy fix for the bugs. Glad to hear it is working. Last week, my odo clicked over 1,000 miles. Also the last 2 weeks, I have been working on building a beach cruiser EZ bike. I have ridden it probably 20 miles or so and working mainly on setting it up as my "going to town bike." Glad to hear that you are up and running. On both of my bikes, I set up the drive chain without any tensioner and put the tensioner on the pedal chain side. This last one was real clean because I welded a slotted tang and bolted on a plastic sprocket from a derailleur to take up the slack. Very simple and clean. I could not do that with my Felt MP bike because it has a aluminum frame instead of steel.

Happy motoring,
