getting up to speed to start is impossible i had to pull clutch handle then run with the bike drop the clutch put weight on seat while running to start the motor then pull clutch in to keep it running while running next to bike as fast as i can to hop on and start off
oh and if that wasnt baD enough at the clucth handle the adjuster screw vibrated out while riding so i had to use my brake lever as a cluthc handle leaving me with out breaks

it was a rough ride home but i made it with the gears messed up i couldnt even pedal home if i had to

I remounted my seat to the stock position on the seatpost. The bracket I made to mount my seat really low wasn't durable enough.

according to shimano the axle on the CB-E110 is 165mm wide. Shimano CB-E110 Single Speed Coaster
that's just how long the axle is. the "over lock nut dimension" (which is from cone nut to cone nut) is 109mm.

should fit your frame just fine...

cool... also had a thought about a flip-flop hub. since it'd have a fixed on one side and a freewheel on the other. could potentially run the motor on the fixed side since it uses a left handed lock ring (motor would just make it tighter as it spins)

If this is a flip-flop hub, wouldn't it have a RIGHT-handed lock ring?

oddly no, they have left handed so that while braking using the pedals it won't loosen the gear...

since pedaling would tighten the gear on (right hand thread)
and braking (reverse pedal) will tighten the lock ring (left hand thread)

ok so i actually did a bit to my bike today i put a used shifter, new cable,new cable housing,used crank sprocket, and fenders homemade fenders

i fixed my bike got it up to snuff and did it for free didnt cost me a thing epcept a little volenteer time to pay for parts

but on the way home about 3 blocks from home when coming to a stop my engine flooded and would not start i looked don and saw fuel coming out of carb i figured the float got jammed so i pedaled the rest of the way home
but then right in front of my house literaly in my front yard my new/used sprocket broke i was so glad i was home

so after starting the day out with a crippled bike and fixing it it was completly useless

i took the carb apart and cleaned it everything looked in order so i put it back together same problem leaking badly so i took it apart again and found the flange that cuts off fuel wasnt sealing write i fixed the problem by bending the tabe that holds it up and it works fine now

i scavenged a sprocket from another bike and got my bike in business again tommorow ill go get another sprocket to replace the one i stole from another bike

I've re jetted my bike and installed a new air cleaner from Sick Bike. The $12 one. My bike is running really well and seems to be very dependable now that all the bugs are worked out. About all I'm planning for the future is maintenance stuff and as much riding as possible.

I want some nice tires, and maybe a different headlight, but overall I'm pretty darn satisfied.

Cool Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Just put the bottom bracket conversion unit in,and the three piece alloy crank-
got the crank used on ebay and annodized painted it red- loses some serious weight- I have to take this up and down the stairs- tho down isn't much of a problem!

Speaking of a flip/flop above- Yes, the sproket holes match the diameter and yes it can lock down LATERALLY with a lockring-

but because it's not threaded it still must be held in place to pull the hub- here's a tread I posted recently with a puicture of one I put on a high flanged hub that didn't have any holes in the side before I drilled them- It HAS to be high flanged or you will have to use a rag joint.
The high flanged hub clears a motor sproket that has the six inner disk brake holes. I used a small 32 I had around as a pattern to drill this 41 stock kit sprocket.
