I had to bend the muffler to clear the front motor mount and pedals and add a tensioner/chain guide but now its a fully functional bike. I still have to add the drive chain/tensioner, gas tank, cables, throttle, speedo, oh and trim the chain guard to clear the motor. I know I'm probably forgetting something but I'll remember cause right now it's all mock up cause I want to paint all the silver mounts and brackets so it look like it came from the factory motorized.

Thanks. I got the drive chain on finally. Now the hard part is done (I hope). It's been a slow build cause I have work and kids but it's moving forward. I'll post more pics when I can.

So I was able to work on it some more tonight. I got the gas tank mounted, the clutch handle and cable installed and modded the stock grips to fit the throttle grip since I really liked the stock ones and it'll fit my idea of making it look factory. Sorry I ran out of time to take pics but I will get some soon.

Got the grips installed, throttle cable. All I have to do is wire up the kill switch and paint the brackets and plumb the fuel line. Oh and install my speedometer.

the best part is the way your exhaust is set up all the gunk will be on the road and not your tyre sidewall.
looking fine!

I like that too. That's just the stock kit exhaust, I don't think any other one would fit is tight but clears. Overall the motor went in without much fuss and I didn't have to fab up mounts, I used the stock rear mount and then the cnc universal front mount. The only hard thing was the rear sprocket. Thanks for everyone's input, I'm not quite done but really close.
