Hey folks, its been awhile since I've been on the forums but I have some news! After selling my motorcycle I started a new motorbike project! My other builds were with the China Girl 2 strokes and I wanted to move up in the world so I decided on a Predator 212cc engine.
My friend and I went balls to the wall and did as much as I could afford with the engine: new cam, connecting rod, advanced fly wheel, spark plug, springs, carburetor, governor removal, and a new exhaust.
I wanted a fattire bike for this build and after visiting a couple local bike shops I ended up purchasing a complete bike from Sikk bikes
. The frame was slightly to small for the motor so I cut away at a two spots and wrapped them in fiberglass casting tape. I'm not too worried about the structural integrity because of the wrap, but only time will tell how well it holds up.
The 40 tooth sprocket and adapter I have is .25" to small for the rear hub of this bike so I widened with a stepped bit, it worked better than I expected the bit too. Initially the exhaust was directly over the seat tube so my friend and I bent it with MAPP torches. It took about five sessions of slow bending to get the pipe in the desired location.
I'm typing this thread as I'm waiting for the lock tight to cure, have about four hours left until we get to take the bike for a test ride. I have more photos here everyone should check out!
I'm thinking of naming her Little Red, any other name ideas? Thanks for the read y'all have a good one.
P.s Anything else I should do to the bike besides installing lights and a rear discbrake?
