Default Up and running

I went with a Schwinn Jaguar and ordered a 80cc kit from for my first build..I think it was almost as much fun to build as it is to ride..This site is a HUGE help for all the little tips and trick for putting these together..Always nice to learn from others trail and error..She's running very good I think I might have to tinker with the gearing a bit..There is a lot of hills between me and work and I tip the scales at 280..But it does okay just lugs a bit before I crest the hill..It's a blast to ride I think I'm going to have to build another to modify..

Nice job...a 48T sprocket may be in store for you, but I'd break it in first. Also, if noise isn't too much of an issue, remove the baffle from the muffler and if need be, adjust the slide needle, and you will see a moderate power gain.

A clean garage is a sign of a sick mind!!!
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
