For a bike that goes through a bunch of back streets and city streets, it's better to race to 25 than to wait it out for a higher speed I will just have to brake down from anyway. I was having fun, till I walked up the grassy incline near my house, where I always have to go to the freeway edge where the service road dead ends. I gas the bike to walk it up the hill. Some crap (beer bottle? other?) got in my rear wheel and destroyed half a dozen spokes and bent my tension strap. I had to walk a mile home. Oh well. When I get a new wheel or spokes, should be able to fix it right up. Meanwhile, I've got another bike. Vrooom! I wonder where to get 12g spokes?
This is where I got the 12g spokes for my rear wheel.

I built a Fred kit engine using a PK69.5/80cc as a base and test fit the engine, I'll have to either re-design a Sportsman Flyer intake manifold in order to the air filter onto the RT performance carb or buy another ?

Order a pirate cycles intake, its a nice port matchd intake and will give you much more room for the air filter.

The intake needs to brought out to the right or left ,currently it hits the seat post and when we fit the motor we were using was an NT and much smaller then the RT the only intake I found on Pirates is about what I'm dealing with now.

I intend on powder coating the bike black with some light cream color inserts on the tank and oil box and an authentic Shaw decal on the tank, the bike will be similar in paint scheme to this Schwinn.

There is a popular intake tube which is a Z shape and longer than the kit one. It's probably what they are talking about.



Either that, or this one (super short, straight, with o-ring and o-ring groove for good seal. Check for fit before you buy) http://www.piratecycles1.com/intakesanyone.html

Rode over to my buddy "EVIL'S" house today Hung out for a bit, and then went on my favorite scenic route around Outback around town . There is a pretty steep incline it's about a half mile long coming back into the edge of town , with my shift kit in 5th gear my older PK-80 I could take it to the top and I could make it in staying at 27 miles an hour, however with my DAX GP360 Balanced I top that same hill today at 31 miles an hour. It's a hill to be reckoned with .
