Default Electra build gx100

Picked this frame for 25$. I like the idea of being able to stop and have both feet on the ground. Seat is low, pedals forward, I like it. Just gonna transfer all runnin gear from the ole Del Rio bike. Because I'm running a igh I had to weld a horseshoe brake to the rear. Ole Del Rio will be put up for sale in the for sale space.

Motor mount in. Had a couple U brackets layin around, so, Js carrier mount.adjustable. Since I can't afford a 'in frame tank, this will work. Better than the 'ole rack mount tank. Pipe fits right in. Prolly paint it red, so I can call it DelRio and keep my registration plate.

Greetings Velo, the governor I don't know if it was removed from inside or not. This engine was for sale at a swap meet, minus carb. FOR 10$... I tested for spark, Yes! Ouch. Got my 10$ out and hurriedly left with the engine. Once home I thought I it was OHV...No OHC.. This engine is mean. My igh's are a 3 and a 4 speed. With the 4 I end up skipping 2nd. I had a couple shifts where I didn't allow the revs to come down enough, jerked gears..so far so good. Waaay better than derailer types. The 3 is just right. And these to were swap meet finds.

I like internal shifters too, it makes things so much more pleasant to work with when the whole drive train is in alignment and I find 3 gears to be fine for most cases.

One thing is for sure, you have plenty of room in that Electra frame.






I don't care for the rear dropouts but other than that a nice frame.
You will need to make a custom slot or something to attach an axle pull to however, every IGH I have tried needs an axle tug om the right hand axle to to keep the wheel in place.

Hey KC, nice Electra! I thought about filling the existing drops and cutting slide outs....but, they work. AND I learned the hard way on those axle keepers... Forgot it.. then wondered why myshifter kept coming loose( nex 3 speed). Almost ruined the threads. Chased em alls well.

CB2..wassssssup..drive will be the 3speed nexus. My clutch is 11 back to 32 over to 11 down to a 60 final drive 24 to rear wheel 18. Take off is great, I could prolly hit 25 before shifting to 2nd...but Hondas are Expensive!! Shipping...no idea what that would've cost.

Thanks for the Electra Kudos, cool you remembered the axle tug before you stripped the Nex-3 Allen set screw.

I hate that screw.
I learned the hard way and it cost me, but I figured out what was needed and happy there was already 'just the thing' I needed to keep the axle in place, an axle tug.
