Default engine on 12.5" OCC stretch

i actually am further than this but these are the last pictures i took

i actually rode the thing for for a bit today, but my coaster brake mod failed - ack! but not completely unexpected...

I was really enjoying riding this. it is really fun, what with miy butt less than a foot off the ground, and my heels dragging from the bottom bracket at six inches, with 3.5 inch cranks. I cannot wait to get this dialed in!


anyway i got the engine in. i made some mounts, with the intention of adjusting them laterally before drilling, but it turns out my offset (to the edge of the two inch strap) was was just right. so the mounts line up with the frame.

the painters tape on the engine is so i can set the engine down, and whatever without scratching it. that drives me crazy for some reason

anyway here's pix, still minus fuel line and exhaust.


i made a killer temporary exhaust header 1/2" emt is a perfect fit inside the stock pipe. so i used a conduit bender and bent up the header.

The bowler fits the ride 100%! although I wear a top hat myself. It really came out awesome!

Default Re: 12.5" OCC stretch

thanks!

i just have to work out the coaster brake.
the thick standoff for the rear drive chainwheel requires a (very)deep brake arm or extension or something.

the something i created failed after a bunch of test runs, but before i could film this thing rolling.

i am considering machining an extension, say a 1.25" rod with a hole in the middle and rectangular recess in the bottom and matching rectangle on top. then stack the extension on the cone and the brakearm on the extension, finish assembly as normal

has anyone seen an item this item for sale?

Default Can I mention this is for sale?

I hope it is not a faux pas to mention this is bike is on the block.

see the classified ad here:
www.ksl.com/?nid=218&ad=41949647

I would consider working with someone from this forum as far as shipping etc.
whereas i prolly would not just for a random person...
