hello were shop dogs.
good day ladys and gents
I'm The prussian , the puppy (@40) of a group of builders,bikers,hot roders in ne il(north of chicago)
over the last few years while working on a "c" coupe tee buckett at "mad dog johnie"s the guys
started talkin about an old punch moped "twitchy marty" was trying to rebuild, well when it was fixed
and we saw the s#!teating grin on twitchs face and we all wanted in. so far mad dog has built a silver halk ? from a guy in canada that he put on a kmart schwinn. he had two guys buy the same kit and both have gone togther well as far as ive herd . I couldn't just sit there so I am building the kit from piston bikes the grubee 80 . on a cheap huffy . so far the only tech thing has been aligenment of the rear sprocket as to allow for chain clearnce . as each frame and rear hub has been different on each bike sofar, we've had a few chanches to get it right. mdj had some leather from a lathe drive belt that is aprox 1/4 inch thick. and by cuting out sevral little "pucks" and adding that layer into the sprokett adapter , things worked out ?
for a bunch of guys who work with metal , were having a hard time beliving the leather will last very long as it gets wet and moves around so... any body else have this issue. or if you all have any advise for newbiees please elaborate. thanx
