Smile Re: pushing the tickler....Progress pictures

I thought I'd throw out some pictures of my build so far, I know I always enjoy looking at others pictures.
The Bike is a Walmart- Chinese Schwinn Clairmont .

The engine is a slant head I purchased from Bike Berry.

Only 2 things broke so far, the Bakelite on the spark plug wire, and the pull start rope.
I dont have a lot of miles on mine, I just work on it a little along, and check adjustments with a short ride down the road.

There are 3 items that make the motorized bike really fun to work on and ride, for me personally at least.
A 2 legged kick stand.
It is a pure pleasure to park it any where without fear of it falling over.
When using the pull start the 2 legged stand is really steady, and this stand allows me to do all the work/adjusting needed.

2 and 3.
Pull start and centrifugal clutch.
These 2 additions make the bike a pleasure to ride.
The only time I use the clutch lever is when I'm pushing the bike (engine off) into the garage.

I already know that this bike will always be a work in progress...never finished.

Actually been thinking of a Jack shift kit and front disk brake.
Front disk brake on my current fork may be problematic, any suggestions?

Thanks for looking.........Ron

Good looking build! Congrats. I used to have a double kickstand too, but ended up breaking two of them. I've since become an expert at leaning the bike against stuff. The clutch keeps it from rolling off balance.
