I actually got to work on it!
It is a slow going build as I do not have much free time as of recent.

Yank - I was just there the other day, I guess Staton is the only one left.
Any way this is different I have built so many frame kits, too bad the BGF kit is so bad. Egor

Its been well known since i joined this site that they went under.
Has been talked about in MANY threads on this forum and the other forum.
It is not new news.

After completely rebuilding this thing I got it installed on the bike. I like the friction drive thing, except for the looks. It could be easy to install if you get the correct kit, (not this one) The engine is large I don't think you need an engine this big or powerful. It is fast as the kit uses a large roller. As you know the size of the roller dictates the top speed, It acts as a literal wheel the larger the faster you could go. If I were to build another I would use this kit and find another engine to go with it, you can see the quality in there kit. bikemotorparts.com Have fun, Egor

I rode mine 110 miles today, on just a little over 1 gallon. I had 2 flats though from using cheap crappy thin tubes and riding on the shoulder where the svc. road ended.

I am installing a handlebar mounted kill switch ASAP. I got pulled over by police and did not want to reach behind my back for the killswitch on the friction drive bracket. He said turn it off, and I hollered where the switch was. He saw it and told me to push it. I probably would have been better off if I'd bought a better quality flashing light and added reflector tape before the trip. And the bar mounted switch would maybe make things easier if pulled over. "WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOIN', RIDIN' IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD?" Better have an answer for that question handy if you ride motorized bicycle bikes. Don't smart off either. I didn't, but he kind of thought I had, at first.

i have a slight problem with my carb and intake manifold. I recently installed a boost bottle. once everything was done i went to put it all on and when i tested it out, i noticed that the vibration from the motor was vibrating the carb right off the manifold! I took it off and retightened the carb back down but it happened again. I even used black silicone to hopefully seal the carb to the manifold keep it from slideing off but it still slid off the manifold. i finally came to the conclusion that my intake manifold is too small for my carb. any ideas on how to increase the diameter of the manifold so the carb can tighten down on it more?

Thanks I forgot about Dax. I have a few of his frame kits, they work pretty good. Just to tell how old they are both have the bushing small end. Duane has always treated me well. I wonder why his stuff does not come up on a Google search. Any way thanks for the help. Egor
