Cleaned it up good
Stared at it wondering if I really want to ride in 40 degree weather with the
wind blowing.
Man winter sucks

That last thing I did to my motorized bike was give it away to my dad.

LOL Mr. Just got back from a ride. Am frozen an' you just had to say 76*! (an I been trying to talk her into it for a whole bunch more then 2 yrs. snork)

My test chain had 3 master links and one half. (is used to swap around different builds in various stages of deconstruction. pre-stretched) Removed half link. Lowered engine to accommodate the now to short chain. Cut off some of muffler pipe. Toyed with welding pipe and flange, but need more practice. Drilled weep hole in pipe. After welding most of pipe, lost 1K RPM. Need to widen hole in blow bag or use a real muffler. hehe, gonna go with the larger hole of course. Well, try both. I made it thread on/off

Pics are b4 and after shortening pipe.

put my chromoly axle on, hopefully this one won't bend as quickly... (i do need to get a hub with better bearings though... it's bending on the freewheel side where it's not supported as well)

Is a HF 2.5 with a whisper drive Skarrd. Just a Max Tourq clutch and pulley. Dunno if can be seen in this pic but clear cover supports a bearing for the final shaft.





Vid is a lil easier to see; Vids :: whisper drive/HF Engine video by dan3xd - Photobucket

The only problem with the HF 2.5s. They just can't climb. Tried though. just look at the path it made getting a running start.
Now the "Slinky" theme song is playing in my head, lol
