I replaced the chinese bolts on my Dax Friction Drive, where the u-bracket mounts to the frame, and added a couple extra nuts to lock the bolts in place where they first go through a bracket. It made it WAY more stable.

Then I added a foam air filter into my rubber air boot, made from cutting a disc out of a Lawnboy $5 foam air filter (made 2). I started and ran it, seemed to stay put ok and ran fine.

$1.30 instead of $5, here.

Installed a few new parts I got in the mail yesterday. 36t sprocket, speed carb, new fuel line with filter, some better handgrips then those God awful ones that come with the Flying Horse engines.
Still waiting for my replacement pipe from Bikeberry. It's frustrating having all these new upgrades and not be able to use them. I did fire it up and run it a few minutes just to make sure it would run, but it's too damn loud for me without a pipe.
Just checked tracking it's on the truck out for delivery! Thank you God! I hope he gets here soon. I want to get some riding in before dark.

I more or less finished rebuilding my first bike. I still have a few little things left to do. Like shortening the throttle cable, bar ends, aging the paint a bit for that patina look. Im working on getting rid of the chain tensioner, I have to grind out the drop outs alittle so i can add another full link to the peddle chain and run the wheel in the back of the dropouts. Im having a bogging problem that i believe is the clutch slipping with the crappy pads. so i have ordered some high friction material to make my own. I also ordered an 68 jet. Hopefully this will get this thing back on the road. Over all i am much happier with the way it is now than before.

- Made some motor mounts to level out the carb
- Added puch 70cc high comp head
- Trimmed piston skirt
- Strumey archer front drum with double walls and 11g spokes from husky
- Pirate cycles billet intake
- Pirate cycles hub adapter with 44t (i want a 40t)
- Filter
- Accel plug wire and boot
- Modified springer front end
- One piece SBP expansion exhaust
