    Thank you all.
    Today was a great day for me.
    I found a 415 chain and also a 54 tooth sprocket for the 415 chain.
    Fantastic!!!!
    Here is a very small town (10.000 people) and I couldn't imagine that I would find almost everything I need to start my motor bike project.
    As the sprocket have different shape and holes, I will cut a circle with the tooths, weld a disk inside and make the standard holes.
    I will put the 54 tooth sprocket because there are several mountains here.
    I am also developing the simplest, cheaper and very secure way to assemble the motor in non standard (greater diameter) front tubes.
    Regards

    Such a beautiful paradise. I have visited that area several times over the last two years. I like how they close down Avenida Atlantico (I think that is the name) on Sunday's to allow foot and bicycle traffic only on the streets.

    Realy, on Sundays the road from Leblon (1st Beacht) to Aterro do Flamengo (last beach) stay closed to walk and ride by bike only, but there is also a year I dont go to Rio de Janeiro.
    Most of my family lives there, but I leave in a town called Itamonte, 250 km far from Rio de Janeiro and 300 km from São Paulo.
    I dont like big cities.
    Much noise, trafic, violence....
    Here we have clean air, clean water, waterfalls, rivers, creeks, natural pools.
    The poeople are more simple.
    I love the neigborhood cities: Itanhandu, Passa Quatro, Pouso Alto, Alagoa, Baependi and Aiuruoca.
    So many waterfalls and natural beauties.
    Regards.

    That is unfortunate. But isn't it summer now in Brasil? I thought you would have many sunny days now.

    At last first ride, 20 km uphill.
    A little disapointed with the power.
    I had to pedal 50% of the way to maintain the rotation.
    I started to think to change the 54 tooth with an 88 tooth sproket.
    Any suggestion?
