Yah, this poor little cobbled together motorized bicycle really needs a bunch of everything, KC.
I had just recently heard abt spacing the motor forward to resolve chain slack, and I think I'm gonna try that method.
...but still gonna be running a rag joint... really need to spring for a hub adapter, but can't do the sensible things when bargain deals keep popping up!
...at least I hope this new motorized bicycle turns out to be a bargain! lol

wOW THAT MOTOR LOOKS BRAND NEW UNLESS HE PAINTED IT & i DON'T THINK SO, IT LOOKS AS IF IT NEVER REALLY GOT THAT HOT dON'T THEY TEND TO CHANGE COLOR A BIT WHEN THEY GET REAL HOT ? Freaking caps Caps I hat that I didn't look up soon enough they need a "uncap button " in Windows So if your an id10T like me you can just highlight like copy / paste then click "Uncap" & it fixes it . Id use that option often!!
I'm not retyping all that either so deal with it LOL ..

R/C.
It sure looks like a 66to me the 49's tend to have a shorter head/ bore stroke it seems to me don't they IDK ?

Woo! Nothing like that first kit at the door, eh guys? Be sure to read the instructions 3 times before you get to it. And, as always, we're here to help too.

Best of luck on your first kit!

I went to ChinaMart to get some Krylon clear coat spray paint since I used Krylon white on the misc. parts.
They were out of stock.
I went to Lowes and all they had was Valspar brand in clear. I asked the guy at the paint counter if it would be compatible with the Krylon I used. He said yes, no problems with them.
Sprayed it on my battery holder and instant wrinkle city! Ruined the paint on it immediately.
After inventing a few new words for the English language I decided to forgo clear coating any of the parts and installed the handlebars. I will wax the parts later for protection from the elements.

Damm guy at the counter.... Appears to know very little about paint and he is the one that sells the paint.....
Arrrrgh!!!

man, I haven't posted in forever. Bike's been down. My chain stretched to the point where I just don't trust it anymore, so i started looking for a new one. Finally ordered it online. Should be here next week.
In the meantime, I've been turning the basement into a stop-motion animation studio. Satisfying work, but it's no match for the motorbike.

y'alright skarred?
