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.
