Decided I wanted to rebuild my bike again to enter the build off on RRB. Here is the latest mock up. still waiting on a few parts. But I really like it so far.

Upgraded to the CR Machine Stage 1 top end with 6cc combustion chamber (GT5 engine). Top of my jug is milled, so greater compression pushed my requirements past the 91 octane rating of premium pump gas. I now have to run racing fuel, but man is it worth it! Left a few scooters in the dust on the test ride today!

Well over 20 miles of pleasant country roads. I love this thing we do.

Misaligned rear tire equals picture one.

I never intended to leave my bottom bracket like this, but...

Insulated the wires connected to my headlight switch, because I had noticed last night that after it had been raining, my headlight had a dim glow even though it was switched off. I also went to great pains to find a good ground for my brake light after noticing that it wouldn't always work right. It seems to be working well now. I also had to cut some new rubber mounting shims for my tail light after the ones it came with fell out. I taped the new one on so it won't fall out again.

When I was riding the HT bike, I had all lights run with 2 wires (1 hot, and 1 ground back to a single ground screw near the engine. ) That took care of computer glitching and blown bulbs.

Today take the bikes for a spin,GT5 ran without difficulties came without the chain cover screw, then whizzer ran good but when I go 35-38 miles seems as if the carb runs out of gas because it stops accelerating,then I stop to accelerate and re-accelerate again and does the same at 35-38 miles,what could it be ,thanks in advance.

Lol, my electrical system is kind of a mess but it works. Here is how I have everything set up. I have 3 7.2v nicad batteries strapped to my luggage rack. One powers my brake light and the other two, wired in series, power my headlight. I have the ground cable for my headlight running to my fork. My brake light is automatically grounded because its metal. I have two wires running from each of my switches, one switch for my headlight and the other for my brake light, which is built into my brake lever. One wire from each switch is connected to the light it controls, and the other to the battery that powers it. I have a ground cable running from each battery to a separate grounding point, because I found that if I ground them both at the same place, one light or the other will not work. The batteries are connected to the wires via quick disconnects, so that I can easily remove the batteries. I charge them inside when they need charged. I have two chargers, one is a 5 hour charger and the other is a 15 minute charger.

I'm on this computer, and my bike is an arm's length away. It's 7am. Everyone's still asleep. Mother's Day luncheon is at noon. I'm gonna ride to McD's soon, which is less than a mile away.
