You could probably solve your clearance issues with some new forks. I like how things are going so far, I'm gonna keep tabs on you. Keep it up!

Yeah going to ride it like this for a bit and see how it goes. Planning on getting the pedal chain on tonight, and atleast pedal around a bit.

Waiting on piston rings before I can fire her up.

Well more welding needed, or at least better welds. Took a turn to sharp and snapped the cranks off and buggered up my crank. I have replacements coming, so no worries just another delay.

Yeah, better turn the juice up on that welder, it's all about penetration.

Yeah has to step away and come back fresh. Was able to get some airgun hunting five though,a few rabbits and some other pest critters that one of the farmers have been having issues with. Good way to spend a morning, and relax. And it is a great way to keep my freezer stocked as well.

Well for my new crank bracket in, and everything is welded up. Ran the chain and hooked up the coaster break. Went for a little ride, and all went well. Nothing broke and she ride fairly well, though I will have to balance the wheels to keep things from rattling around.

The one thing I may change is either the handle bars, or move the seat post. The reach is a bit long, and I am rubbing my seat on the tire.

Well was able to get the motor on and running..though didn't like how not ran with the motor. With the really wide turns it took a bit to get it around turns. Took off the motor and going to keep this one pedal powered.
