Re: New guy from Alabama
Welcome, your build reminds me off my first attempt at building a motorized bicycle. That was over 40 years ago, I hope yours runs longer than mine did. The engine threw a rod two or three days after a friend and I spent two weeks building it every day after school. To make the frame stronger we made a bracket to bolt to the head and bolted it to the top bar.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
