Jman - that's pretty cool....I wouldn't have guessed a grip shift would have enough pull for the clutch. So the clicking latch holds the clutch?

My dual pull seems to be working well, but I want to put a right grip shift on the left to shift for the jackshaft conversion.

For those who dont know what a degree wheel is for....You will need it for doing your timing. There are many web site's that offer free wheels to copy, just google "free degree wheel".
I like this one because it offer's several sizes. And for are small engines there's one thats the perfect size.

Don't let your bike end up at a police auction, register it!

Tip 1

I have built up a frame storage locker that works perfectly with a schwinn cruiser frame (although you do need to have a chain-guard fitted).

required:-

2 x large zip ties
1 x 800g biscuit tin
plasticised covering

Cut a plate out of the lid corresponding to the size of the opening you want and secure this as an opening panel (with or without lock)

This will only fit up with the use of a rack mounted engine and I use it to carry fuel etc.

Tip 2

Those nice small wine bottles (the 250ml ones) work perfectly as spare fuel carriers and fit perfectly into the storage box above. they are tough enough to survive a drop onto concrete and are nice and small.

They will fit in the box along with two locks and a tool roll.

Tip 3

When you are on a long ride be sure that you have the relevant tool to adjust the handlebars. This means that if your wrists start to hurt (or in my case my shoulders sometimes as well) you can adjust the handlebar position on the go.. Alternatively you can invest in a short Quick release to hold the handlebars in position - be really really sure this is tight - I dont need to tell you that though.

Pictures as requested

I have had this locker fitted up for over 6 months and its starting to look a little tatty but considering it was made out of stuff around the house I dont mind that much...

Still waiting for my pipe to turn up *sigh*

Pic 3 is an exhaust system I made up using a mocyc/motomite muffler (about the only part of that engine that worked apparently). Its not exactly made the bike quieter but it sounds less like a wasp on nitrous...

I think its beginning to run in - 34mph on the flat

Jenna, that is so cool..the bike that is. I know you say it's a cruiser but what year and is that how it comes? I love the forks, the front fender, the "gas tank" and the seat
I love the looks of that bike.
