Created the end cap for my air filter.



I also found that my motor mount seems to have to much movement in it for my liking. See my Wasp build link below for for what I think will be a fix.

I also put the crash bars on to see what it would look like with them. Tell me what you think.

Hey racie, I just happend to notice that your avitar is an American Speedster Golf Coaster. A long time ago I had the idea of putting together a three wheeler using the design of the Baja. With a few mods it would be possible to make it a little sturdier AND street legal. It's not a very good drawing, but I put this together on my paint program, like I said, a long time ago. Whadya think?
fatdaddy.
I think you would have to bring the front wheels out wider for stability

I actually installed a tanaka 47 on the speedster and took it back off when i sent the bike to my brother in indiana...was easy to do in the back....using good muffler clamps , welded plates across and clamped it all on.......then took a big front sprocket and added that to the left rear....chain and tensioner and off we went....I think you'll be just as happy with all four wheels....and you can always add en electric hub to the right rear really easy

4 wheeled motorized ain't legal in California.
406.(a) A "motorized bicycle" or "moped" is any two-wheeled or three-wheeled device having fully operative pedals for propulsion by human power, ect. So it would have to be a three wheeler.
But I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that comes up with idea's like this. Was begining to think I was the only "creative Genius" left in the world.
fatdaddy.
But I did get around to building this a few years ago.
