There are enough holes in the frame already without drilling more.

It doesn't work too good anyway.

Go to a gunsmith and get some lead shot, the smaller the better.

Lightbulb i dont know if this stuff is wd40 but

(TIRE WET or better known as BLACK MAGIC ) i dont know if this stuff is wd40 but i put it on my tires with an medium paint brush . it gos so much further than trying to spray it. . i mix it with heavy duty grease for other jobs . i use wd40 for when i need a straw ... heres how .. i have an old bowl that i pour it in , then i spread it with the paint brush / gos way further than spraying !!.. i have found that using this method all so works with windex window cleaning .. brushing saves a lot and gos on smooth,,,, just use a diferent brush for windows . as not to get grease remains on windsheild

When installing a shift kit I found that the clamps were just going to eat the paint and metal to pieces.So I cut some strips out of an old tire and put around seat tube.With the rubber and the webbing inside,the clamps have'nt cut into bike.Probably helps with vibration also.

HAHA. I did that with a lever shifter to a Goped Sport one time, except those are direct drive & don't have clutches (and mine was missing the brake). The thing was so dangerous after that, but it made it SOOO much more fun to try and drive in traffic.

As far as the handlebars vibrating I just stuffed some old hand towels with a screwdriver in where the hand grips go and that pretty much did it.
