BOOM chain breaks and wraps arond back spokes.. i slide to a halt .... with out crashing... so i untangle chain pick up the pieces on the ground,,, chain is now broke and bent and warp all to he** ,,, so on the way home i stop at TRACTOR SUPPLY buy a box of chain (thanx guys ) and get it back going again ,,, no problems so far .... except one (my fault) i go to work one morning ... i get going and it jus stops ... gas is going all down the frame and my leg.... i look closly and see i knock the fule line off as i was taking off the choke .... no problems.. put it back on and go .... THEY AINT FOR EVERY ONE ILL GIVE THEM THAT .. but i have enjoyed it ALL .... and look forward to more ridding ,,, :ride2:

Thanks for sharing your experience with the bolts getting loose on the rear sprocket. Those "neoprene donuts" do settle a bit.

Once you get the bugs worked out, you'll have a very reliable ride. I learned from building many bikes and have had the weirdest things go wrong, e.g. little pin on piston that prevents rings from rotating fell out allowing ring end to get caught in a port causing serious engine damage.
