    Looking good!
    If you want to get the motor a little lower you can cut down the rear motor mount.

    Looks nice.

    You will want a rear brake on that bad boy though. You've got a v-brake on the front, so I'd assume you have the mounts on the back, which it looks like you do. :)

    oh my god this thing is soo damn fun ran so much better then i would have imagined an iv barely touched the throttle had a rough idling problem so i tore the carb apart an adjusted it to the second lowest setting on the rich side tac welded the tensioner on the bike due to the first start automatically ripping the tensioner into my spokes ... sketchy buisness adjusted the clutch several times but this thing runs like a dream no excessive smoke head not leaking things amazing best two hundred bucks iv ever spent in my life pick up is phenomenal cant wait for the break in to be over so i can wot this s o b

    Don't worry about tuning or mods until it's broken in fully. These engines usually take 300-400 miles to settle down and run up to full potential.
    Once it's stable and fully seated, you can start looking for more.
    I'd suggest a smaller rear gear and a pipe for better cruising speed.

    Keep an eye on mounting bolts and exhaust bolts for the first few rides, after you check them a few times they usually take a set and stay tight. Be sure to use a second exhaust mount to hold the muffler from shaking around too.
    This is death on exhaust studs. Mount that heavy muffler right!
    Also take the time to regrease the hub bearings very soon if you have not already done so. They won't last at motor speeds unless they have grease!
    Get a patch kit too!
