Wow moonerdizzle, that bike is looking like a hill climb race bike! All you need to do is put a paddle tire on it. http://ts3.mm.bing.net/th?id=I.49011...46078&pid=15.1

I like your creative thinking on how to use a chinagirl engine on a full suspension bike frame. You are doing an awesome job.
I am looking forward to pics of it when she is ride ready.

Like I said earlier, I FINALLY got the suspension forks on the Hussy. After a little sanding and painting they went on smooth. Took it for a test ride, and with the forks and the Micargi seat it rides a lot softer. Was trying to let the rain let up for pics, but the best it got today is a drizzle. so I took the chance to snap one. I STILL need a better camera though.

P.S. I HATE whitewalls!!!!

test driving the beast cruiser with new clutch springs and crushed the new hub bearings to dust (this things is so damn powerful and fast haha) and had a long walk home with many people giving me compliments for the bike on the way :-P

Today I finally got around to mounting my tank covers. One step closer to getting this thing going

started working on getting things together to build a 2 stroke 24" bike. ordered a full kit to have a spare motor to source parts from.

basically, rebuilding my daemon motors engine from the ground up. everything still in good condition and it was probably the best motor i had. going to build this bike to be a high revving screamer.

torn between making it into a chopper bike look, or a crotch rocket look.

Got my new pedal crank and bottom bracket bearing set with cones. Will have to bend it to make it wide enough, but I'm not sure if I want to use this crank as it looks to be the same length as the old one. I also not sure how easy it will be to bend it even with heat to make it red hot. Can any of you give some idea of how hard they are to bend with heat applied?

Choppers are more comfortable on a long ride. Trust me, I'm OLD, I know.

After it's red hot, You'll have to get it in a vice and slide a peice of pipe over the other end and apply some pressure to it. It WILL bend. Then, heat it up again and dip it in water or oil to reset the metal grain for strength. Then again, some say there's no need for this. I say it couldn't hurt.
