That's gonna be a great lookin ride!

IGH right? How have your Nexus been holding up? I have had any issues yet.
Thinking my B&S build will put it to the test--if I ever finish it.

Did you consider how you are going to route power to the right and how important the plate you weld in plays a part in that?

You might want to consider collapsible baskets...
What I have always hated about saddle bags is having to swing my leg around them to get on or off the bike.



When you can collapse them in when not needed they are friendlier to live with ;}

Cb2, the nexus is holdin up. I've made a couple clunk shifts, so far so good. I like it, I like it alot'....I let the rev's come down, shift then apply throttle to slowly sync clutch and wheel speed. Yeah I've got a 3.5 now sitting under the bench. I striped down the 'rear suspension' to clean it up with fresh paint. Gonna see if I can swap my 3 hp crank with the 3.5. which has a short 3/4 out put. I know one thing, when you pull the cord, don't just yank it..it got compression. It'll snap the cord right out of your hand!

KC, drive is typical shift kit. On the mm, I learned to put a triangle under the plate on the right side for no flex it bend. Pic of saddlebags. I like those collapsible baskets.

I get mine from my local bike shop but this search will get you started.
https://www.google.com/search?q=cola...icycle+baskets

There are also removable 'shopping basket' front baskets that are pretty cool as well just being able to use a teardrop tank on a back rack.



Perfect for shopping for just a few things.
Heck, I'd ride up to the grocery store and park right inside by the carts, release the basket and shop, then snap the basket back on and ride home.
