    Well my chain tensioner got sucked into the spokes after I made a few changes to the bike. Lucky I was only trying to start her.
    Clay (foureasy) had a puch cylinder head lying around and he got that to fit nice.

    Now my goal is to make my bike safer and a little slower and add a few things.

    Im gonna replace my rear wheel with a 24" wheel, how much top end will I loose???
    Im going to throw a disc break on the front
    add a rear fender
    wrap my exhast
    figure out a way to tension my chain without ever having to worry about it going into the spokes



    Also going to get the frame/ forks / tank/ and rims powder coated. Do you guys have an idea on what the will cost?

    Let me know what you think

    peace

    thats awesome to hear.

    I may get the stock tensioner welded or try and come up with a different tensioner and get that welded. Im not sure yet.

    But thanks for the info!

    While welding the stock tensioner in place is a viable option, it also limits it's full range of adjustablity (forward and back)... though that's fine too particularly if you use a half link, I'm just thinking if you've access to welding equipment anyway - why not do the full span tensioner mount? It's just my opinion - but I think it looks better too, more "factory" if ya know what I mean...

    My favorite example, and I don't even know who's bike it is :( *shame*

    if you dont want to weld the tensioner you could always drill a pilot hole down the center of the tensioner and add a self taping screw yes i been taking my bike to bill since he move his buisness back home i really like his work his number is 520-777-0924
