Mount the derailer first, then before attaching the chain, run it through the derailer: go over the freewheel/cassette, over the top of top der. cog, through the guards on the cages, around the bottom of the bottom cog. Start with the chain going around the biggest cassette cog, and biggest chain ring, to make sure you have enough length so it doesn't bind up. You can use a wide U shaped hook made from an old spoke, through links about 4-5 inches apart, to keep the two links together where you are joining them.

Thank you. Got that all squared away now my next thing to change is the chain ring. Guess the chain did a number on numerous things. The new chain gets stuck on the chain ring and doesn't run smoothly on it. If that makes sense.

I mounted a headlight on my DIY bike.

Rode my motor bike around my neighbor hood, and found a 'your speed is:' sign. had some fun with it, going past the sign.
I walked right past it and got on my four wheeler and rode through the swamps. I went on a nice ride yesterday though..

Bought some new and new used tools to work/build my bike. From Harbor Freight I order the 90amp Flux Wire Welder, Auto-Darkening Welding Helmet and at an auction today I got 2 angle grinders and a die grinder (all 3 for $5 total). Yea some of you will say the welder is a waist of my money, but it is all I can buy for now. For what I need to do with it and with some Lincoln wire it will do just fine.

Been so long since I have used a stick welder and never really get the hang of striking the arc, I always seem to stick the rod allot. HAHAHA

yep you do that till you get the hand of it i like it because i can get different rods (brass, steel,bronze, exc) and dont need shielding gas.

but mig is easy to learn and easy to do so its the "best" to learn with or if you are going to do alot of welding

New 1" stainless flex exhaust with stainless tailpipe. Sounds great and increased the top speed from 34mph to 36mph.
