Default Predator 212cc Stretch Cruiser - Update to Full Motorcycle

After a couple months of endless fun and learning about problems of the frame/bike/engine, and legal issues and the sheer power of the engine, I decided to get a license for the bike as motorcycle and rebuild is as full motorcycle. The pedals made the bike ugly and the frame kept braking about 5 times in total. Here is the original thread from the idea to realization of the bike.

Now we took the frame apart and rebuild it as bobber style motorcycle with much thicker (inside) tubes and a new frame design. Everything had to be heavy duty to make sure there wont be any problems with a braking frame anymore. So we replaced the bottom tube with 2 tubes and connected it to another new and thicker one coming down from the front. I found a nice moped hub for 12mm bolt and will use a fat 80mm 24" rim for the rear. Here too, the frame have to be customized to fit the really wide wheel and the chain again. This is something that will be done tonight/tomorrow.

To give you a a little preview I will link some pics:

Today was welding day. We made some more custom parts to reinforce the frame further at the tube for the fork and at the bottom where the 2 tubes meet the main tube.

Also tested bobber seat options because i want it lower and a real bobber style seat.



The seat and metal piece we made for the front:



The seat again closer:



Welding the engine plate in place:



For some parts we used gas and bronze instead of welding:

looking great!
Be sure to limit the seat travel somehow to prevent tire (and backside!)damage!
Be sure it is STRONG!
Don't ask me how I know this.

Didnt really had time to post pictures because I spent most of the time rebuilding my Camaro as well, but I finally got the bike running great. Some details like Bobber seat and tank are still missing, but its running like a beast!!!

Just wanted to add a few more pictures to show you guys the result and I also have it for sale now to start a new project. I moved to an area where it literally rains every damn afternoon and I cant really use the motorcycle how I wanted to.

Anyways, enjoy:

I hope you are putting folding footpegs on. I oonce had a bike w/ non-folding pegs, had a minor crash. My right leg folded around the non-folding peg. I learned the hard way

Thats just temporarily. I wasnt sure where I will put the real ones because I tested it with a cheetah clutch for the past 2 months and I didnt wanted to have my leg near that thing. For now thats ok although I scratched already a few times the street leaning in good curves haha
