Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

I'm gonna consider my changes a success. Top speed is about the same, however, I've eliminated the 4 stroking. Idle is good, acceleration is good. Seems a little smoother/happier. I think I am at a 'stopping' point for any engine changes ---- for now.

Went to my parents to learn the art of arc welding from the master - my old man.
It's been a while since he's done it so in the process of getting reacquainted with his welder he totally welded up my new rear engine mount. It was funny listening to all the swearing and cussing, but a product popped out the other side.
Now to pretty it up and put it on my bike.

Yeah, not sure I can even spray paint. It'd probably dry between the can and the job!!
