Nice pix and yep some seats will break your seat in instead of the other way around, thats why I like the cloud9 seats, comfortable from the first time you sit on them and from then on.

Rode my bike for the first time in over a month. Finally got in all the parts and found the time to install. Had to also get a new output sprocket to fit the new 415 chain......no amount of grinding would make the old sprocket work.

So, with the new sprocket, Shimano coaster wheel, 36t sprocket and adapter, chrome 415 chain, Continental City Ride 26X1.75 tire, NT Speed carb, and a few other small things, I've got a different personality motorbicycle! Much smoother. Much quieter. Much less 'frantic' at a higher cruising speed. Much better!!

As all things lead to another, next on the list will be ordering a matching front wheel and tire, and maybe a Cloud 9 seat. I'm also gonna keep my eye out for a suspension front fork ---- then all that will be left of the original bike will be the frame!

Looks really nice Mark/xseler, I really like the looks of that wheel and adapter, I have the chrome steel wheels, but I like the black aluminum wheel better than mine.

built me a fuel tank for my Yellow Taffy build, when you see what I built it out of some will shreak a bit pobably, but the tanks were well purged before any cutting was done on them, actually pulled the valves out of them last year and then today I pressured them up multiple times with compressed air and held them so the exit was at the bottom so if there was any gas lingering it would be blown out since propane is heavier than air.

CAUTION.... IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, DO NOT CUT, PUNCH HOLES IN OR GRIND ON PROPANE CYLINDERS, IF DONE WRONG YOU MAY GET A BIG BANG OUT OF IT.....!!!

I will be posting several pix to show most of what I did from start to brazed up and ready for a good coat of truck bed liner.

wasn't sure where to put this, but this is what I did today so I thought I'd just post all of it here.
