    Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your first build. Now, get to work on your next one :) Did we forget to tell you that they're addictive?

    What kind of fork is that and is it shock absorbing?

    You did pretty darned good for a first build!
    What are you using for a rear engine mount, and how is it attached to the frame?

    west coast chopper bicycle. solid tubes for front forks, rear mount is an aluminum flag post reinforced with steel tubing. the motor is just a 50cc chineese kit. blew the muffler apart riding it today. the back mount is attatched by a bolt going through frame and by a metal strap wraping around frame then bolted through flagpost. if you want more details i will give measurements and materials
