I've seen some folks try to beat a frame into submission like that and it looks like crap and could weaken the frame. It's your bike, build it your way. But I don't recommend beating up your frame to do it.
AND Dan, How many people do you think got the Arlo "Group W bench" reference?

Heres a link for a double U-bolt setup. A single U-bolt will work too.

lol just a few minutes after i had posted that i checked sick bike parts and saw they had the mount made just for the over sized tube, i needed to get parts from them as well so i got that mount c:

I finished fabbing up a throttle linkage for my 98cc engine today. It works perfectly, except I need a different spring so the throttle will return on its own. But other than that it works great.

Installed another new kick stand ($20 from Bird Dog Dist). This time the type that hangs behind the rear wheel, and folds down under it. Doesn't fit exactly, but ok. Seems to work pretty well, barely keeps the back tire off the ground though. All in all a success I think.

Longest ride so far today (40* and sunny). Rode it 12mi, limped it 2mi, pedaled it 2mi, walked it 2mi, trailored it 2mi. I'm going to bed.
The kickstand got well used today, would prefer it be an inch taller. And by the way, the 12mi was FREAKIN AWSOME!

Installed the carb side intake gasket and started it up...

It LIVES... IT LIVES... IT LIVES...

You get what I mean...

* * * IT REALLY LIVES * * *


But still need to tune it and I also found a couple pin holes in my exhaust pipe. Tell you what it sure does need a muffler because it roars without one.

I tightened up the engine belt on my belt drive felt. The new tension made a world of difference, for one it got rid of the squeal that was driving me nuts and I also gained a noticeably quicker acceleration now and a more stable top speed (before it would vary slightly).

Bike is great to drive now with the belt setup.
