    Been in the process of building this micargi general with honda gx50 grubee 4g picked up a monark springer from venice bikes he sold me on a set of aluminum rims with 12quage spokes and a rear sprocket that clamshells the hub then i changed front hub to accept a disk brake which i need to upgrade to a resevoir disk instead of a cable I had it fully completed and worked bugs out ran unbelievable after i got rid of low speed vibration so now im tearing it down and painting like i originally planned i didnt think id like it so much as the general but i i really do oh well new paint is already looking good i reworked a gas tank and put a tunnel in it and put a pepcock in each side so i get full amount of fuel i getabout 3/4 gallon in the tank anyways heres some pics now i just noticed dowsizing the pics to post cut them all in half so maybe one day ill figure this computer crap out but maybe u get and idea

    I'de like to know a little more about the garbage can in the third picture .

    Just kidding . be nice to see a full shot of the bike though .
    Trying to jigsaw them images together in my brain .. just ain't workin .
    personally i find resizing pics for the internet is best off at 800 x 600

    Is that tank from a jessie james bicycle ? that looks sweet .

    WoW!

    What a GREAT selection of refuse cans!

    ...and I do like your bike also...
    nice job.
    the brick red tires really set it off nicely.

    well decided to strip the tank with the idea of upgrading from rustoleum to some cadilac cts ppg that my buddy had then added some gold flake scallops started to reassemble looking good
