    Hello to one and all . I started this project last November . Well everything has went wrong the first time . Ordered worksman wheels in november got the right one in january ,sprocket adapter would not fit wrong lacing . The motor had broken cylinder at the base near the transfer port new out of the box . Ordered CDI and pipe was sent to wrong state . And last but not I order a Sportsman gas tank , guest what it would not fit the Worksman frame . Well this the project from **** . I must say all the people I've ordered from have worked with me to make thinks right. So the bike is a worksman INB with Monark forks , new set worksman wheels with front drum brake , Pirate sprocket adapter 44 tooth sprocket . The motor is a Jet the ports are cleaned up piston is reworked it has a Pirate manifold with a Dellorto 16-16 carb all the bearing replaced an a Jaguar CDI box . The last thing was the fuel tank I had to cut the lower tube out and replace it to fit the tank in the frame . A few Pic
