I am currently building on a 1903 Felt Crusier. This is a very unique bike and I welcome input, suggestions and comments on this build. My website for this build has a listing of parts as well as some good information for other builders of this frame. Feel free to surf to my website.

Cheers!

Thanks for the heads up ..... I am going to be running a jack shaft and free wheel crank to get some quality use out of that 8 speed Alfine transmission. I dont think chain rub is going to be an issue. I like the MP, nice style to build off of. Feel free to share any pictures or tips you have on the MP build. Cheers!

Hey B & H.
I'm building a Felt Twin right know, I'm using a 4 strokes engine because of the reability in the long run.
I got the bung and cap form a member her, he buildis it especificly for the felts and they fit perfect and have a special design to be JD welded.
About the o ring, if you review the other conversation you will find that the oring will end dry and cracked because of the gasoline.
Check the link for the cap and bung.

Nice bike. I love the Felts they make great looking motorbikes. Someone needs to make a nice 4 stroke mount for these. Keep us updated.

There are different axle positioning washers that you can buy that will point the shifter cable forward & right under the frame tube. ;)
I'll try to find the part #s for you & post 'em.
