    What's happenin' guys?

    New to the forum and motorized bikes. A buddy of mine had a couple that didn't run and he asked if I could help him out. I was blown away by how simple these bike kits are. I got his 2 bikes running in under 30mins and I was hooked.

    Starting my first build today :)

    Welcome to our community. It sounds as if you have a good grasp of how to troubleshoot already so you're well on your way to a successful build. However if you need any help or advice we're always here to offer assistance.

    Thanks guys!

    Here's a pic of what I'm working with. The 2 on the left are my buddy's bikes. Both, in my opinion are in too bad of shape to ride.

    I've tried convinced him to get a new bike without a coaster brake and some better components but he found a really good deal on this bike with a new set of 36spoke wheels for $100. He's tight on cash and these bikes are his only mode of transportation so I'm going to work with him until he can get some better parts.

    She's a runner!

    What are you guys using to attach the exhaust pipe to the frame?

    Here's a little vid of it running. I'll post up one on a ride once the motor is broken in. https://youtu.be/B0dvLxBGvNw

    So looking around it seems a strap from the bottom of the muffler to the kickstand mount is the easiest way to attach the muffler to the frame.

    No issues with the muffler cap coming loose like this?

    I've already had to weld a new cap on one of his bikes because it kept falling off and he lost it.
