    My new bike build, I bought 5 of these in different colors. This one is being sold but I am hoping on keeping one of the 5. Any sugestions on making it a little better? It started out all Blue, but I did not like it one color, so I painted the fenders and chain guard to match the engine and tank.
    What do you think?

    I like it! Looks very good. Thanks for sharing.
    By the way, what brand is the bike and did it come with disc brakes?

    I got it from my supplier in China he has been working on some different bikes for me, I had him add the disc brakes and the shocks, but the shocks were suposed to be a triple tree set up like my bike in my aviator. It does look decent and it has a single brake lever that has both cables going into a single cable about a foot from the lever.The bike itself is quite solid, I had it out for about 3 hours today and not a hiccop. I only mounted a 49cc to her, just because we are going to sell it out of our store complete.
    Thanks

    Was gonna say, you should put a link to your site in your sig. Our host, Paul is really cool about that stuff. Also, I would be very interested in retailing those bikes. Look awesome.

    It looks great,tbe engine,fenders and tank have a nice factory look to it....One suggestion though,the front fender is dangerous without the doulble hangers on it....

    I built between 70-80 bikes since Augest, and with Christmas coming we are getting busy again. Keeping busy is the key.
    Thanks John and Dan
