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

thank you it took almost 2 months from start to finish only because i had to send parts back because they were not up to my standards if im paying good money i expect good products!!! the only thing i would change is the grips and throttle i think ill buy a set of red ones to set the whole thing off even thinking about red cable covers instead of that black same old same old sets

Yeah... the red cables would really set it off... You can get the cable housing in a lot of different colors and cut to size pretty easily, but I still need to find a good source for the little chrome end caps for that finished look. The build I'm doing now is going to be black with lime green accents so I'm going to do all my cables in lime green and most likely the spark plug wire as well if there's enough black in that area to show it off really well.
I've been thinking about getting the same billet engine covers you got on yours but sandblast them clean and powder coat them to match the bike, I've already powder coated a lot of the small billet parts I plan on using and it's getting a little easier each time I break out the equipment

@drbs, just finished salvaging one like that from the junk pile

diffs are that it has the shock absorber seat & 5-speed shifter frame mounted from I think the 60s - also got the big exhaust working for serious torque

took over 4 days to straighten all bent parts, but sold it for $440 a couple days ago, will post a pic tomorrow

My goodness, that is purdy! My only real issue with that would be parking it somewhere in a breeze & having it blow over. That would be tantrum time.

The ol' soldier has a center stand that has proven MUCH more dependable than the bicycle kickstand it replaced. Eventually, I'll probably order one for my current project.
I just got done ordering what I believe are the parts necessary for my crank. Posting dimensions to parts seems to be an issue with some of these after-market suppliers, and answering email inquiries is another matter where several are lagging.
