    The fender looks pretty good in the bike BUT there isn't much clearance to the tire. I removed it and will install it again after I test brakes and the shift kit.

    A quick rundown of the costs:

    Frame 125 plus powder coating 75 = 200$
    Rims, Spokes, front hub and rear i3 sram hub = 300$
    Tires and tubes = 75$
    Front fork = 95$
    Headset, stem and handlebar = 80$
    Custom Racing Engine with clutch and accessories = 450$
    Brakes = 100$


    Still to add
    Exhaust = 75$
    Shift Kit = 200$


    So almost 1575$ with a lot my precious time :D

    I think it is worth it .. specially if you consider that if you were to buy a bike like this from a retailer it will cost you waaay more.

    hello, I plan on doing a build like your and I cant find anyone that has frame dimension, for example what are the size dimensions on the seat tube? I love the bike turned out awesome. also where did you order the parts?

    It's an 18" frame. Seat tube is 18" from center of crank to center of top tube, and 20" from center of crank to top of seat tube. ID of seat tube is 27.2 mm, OD is 30.8mm. Kings/Gasbike in the sidebar carry both the GT2A and GT2A-S (straight down tube) frames.

    Well life got in the way for a couple of months but I'm BACK ...

    bought a house, married and moved but somehow I managed to keep going and now I got a pull start kit and a running engine.

    This thing sounds soooo cool I love it can't wait for the sick bike parts shifter kit to be here to install with some pedals and start riding it. The motor starts 1st pull every time :D

    Breaking it in with 16:1 mix for now.

    Some pictures and videos as always.

    Very nice clean looking bike, I will say that most of us will recommend that you not use 16:1 in these engines just simply because its way to much oil and will just carbon things up mainly, but if you only use 1 tank and then switch to a typical mix like 32:1 40:1 50:1 etc with a quality oil and tune the carb for it, you should be just fine.

    Nice bike and best wishes with the finished product.
