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

got it outside to get a better pic - shifter is still hard to see, but shocks & disk are visible now

this thing takes off from a standing start like a motorcycle, no pedaling & runs uphill at 35-40mph without slowing noticeably - could easily run a 41T or 36T sprocket

Assembled the road bike I got and now it's time to decide which engine I'm going to put in it... I got a really nice super rat built for speed and I got my old engine out of my mountain bike that took me over the 40mph mark consistantly, I removed that engine to do some minor maintenence on the bike and discovered a cracked frame, was going to weld in some fresh metal but decided to move all my good parts over to a new frame... my frame for that project also came in today so I'm prepping it for paint so I removed the shock from the swing arm,took the spring off the shock to remove the powder coat so I can powder coat it in the color I want it to be, the rear triangle is already black and looks good so it's gonna stay that way, but the front triangle was originally white and has its share of scratches and faded decals ,so it will be repainted, then everything else will be transferred from the mountain bike to the new frame.
I got 3 engines ready so this one will get a nice fast one too as well as a modded kx65 pipe and 18mm mikuni carb.

it's gonna run like a top with those enlarged ports, probably make the belts squeal a little.

yeah, the guy that bought it liked it (still has one payment to make on it) - he wondered about longer, wider bars so I may trade him my long-horn pull backs off my moon dog bike (bars are comfortable for cruising, but have to pull stomach in to make a sharp turn)

Got the specialized full suspension frame stripped down to bare metal and the first coats of fresh paint applied before leaving the shop tonight, on the new roadbike, got it fully together and front brake set up and adjusted, I gotta say it's nice and strong for a rim brake, still need to pull rear wheel off and flip around so I can have the freewheel on the pedal side then I need to connect the rear sprocket to the fixie side, after reading and seeing how others have added the rear sprocket on the fixies I've decided to drill thru both sprockets and bolt them together with 6 bolts in the typical 6 bolt disc brake rotor pattern so I can use spacers or shims to get the best sprocket alignment. I'm gonna keep this bike simple but fast...
I also aquired another mountain bike today for like $20 but it's going to need a chain, new tube and tires, and some cleanup before it's ready for an engine, overall is in good shape but needs a little tlc so it's on the back burner until I get the other 2 bikes on the road.
for the stingray I'm just putting that one on hold as well until I get more time to spend on the frame, I got all the parts to make a complete bike there too but decided to do a few things different than originally planned... if I get that one on the road before this winter I'll be happy since I'm in no hurry to finish that one....

Pulled the cap off the exhaust on the ol' soldier & did a little more drilling. Some day I'd like to create a straight pipe for this bike just to see what happens. I also repositioned the air tank for the horn onto the lower left fork slider just to clean things up a bit.
I did a bit of polishing & planning to the current project and not much else. I am awaiting all sorts of stuff I don't just have laying around, including a wider axle for the rear wheel. Folks that don't bother answering inquiries force me to seek other sources, or even fabricate.
