Be careful not to use chain lubricants with "moly" in the formula. They work for industrial chains that don't get cleaned enough, powered by big motors, but on bicycle chains they have a sticky substance that piles up like mud on the der. pulleys, and hardens into a thick resin!

Won a sack of 50 flanged serrated 1/4" lock nuts on Ebay. Watching an assortment of stainless steel all thread rod 1/4". Weld tabs with 1/4" holes in them to thread the rods through to form mounting points for the S5 E Morini motor.

Photos of the tab location, fab and welding to come

I swear I would pay twice the price for an engine kit that sucked just a little bit less.
Milk me for upgrades, spam my email with useless wastes of money, I do not care. I just want quality parts that work the first few times I install them.

Why don't you go whole hog and run a Mallory MSD ignition and a Demon 575 carb?

Uh, I dunno. Morini? I keep hearing they're good. I think they're a little bit more than twice the price, tho'. Piston Bikes got 'em. SportsCarPat uses 'em. I haven't yet, but I'm tempted - if I get enough cash on hand.

Got the 27 on the back end now to match the front- it's got a 34 alloy sprocket- the thing runs so good with a billet intake and speed carb I think the 34 will be no problem in flat florida-

So I also put a lightweight 413 TRUKE chain on this one- I've been riding the other bike with one quite a bit, and I'm sure that it now pedals easier and so easier then for the motor= and it's quieter too- so rolling easier.

So a lot of weight off the 66- lighter wheel with tire with better roll, lighter chain with less resistence. Alloy 34 lighter than steel 36 it replaces.

Also let me take the cantilever off the back and put a long reach caliper- this thimg looks awsome- and I'll try to post some pictures in pictures sectrion soon.
I've painted over the dark blue frame with that chrome silver paint- almost looks like a chrome frame now.

this thing is almost ready to roll and roll it will.

Well here it is minus pedal chain:

Performed my first build. Not done yet and haven't gotten to start it yet. I really hope it works out.
The mounts I feel aren't exactly well done but the motor feels very solidly mounted.
I was also turning the engine with the sparkplug in and heard some kind of air leak under the compression. But easily could have been because I had not done more than finger tight on the spark plug and not even tightened the carb at all yet. I'm a nervous nelly!


If you'd like to help this is my thead on it:
