    I've made some progress since last time I posted. Don't have the motor or gearbox kit, but everything else is just about ready so I thought to post some pics.

    I couldn't post the "detail" pics of the individual pieces but here is a short description of the bike as it stands:

    26" junked mountain bike V-frame, restored and painted gloss black.

    RST fork and stem, new bearings and polished.

    Peugot (french) unpolished steel vintage-style bars.

    Dual 3-LED 4.5V headlamps, chromed and battery powered.

    Bell bicycle rack (to act as a fender and hold an extra gas can).

    3V, 4-LED rear light (not pictured)

    Vintage German clutch and front brake levers

    Homemade mirror (not pictured).

    7-speed cassette

    Red Schwinn digital Speedo/Odo

    Shimano front rim brakes (no rear brakes on this bike, so the fronts will be highly responsive when tuned).

    Cheapo chinese tires and inners.

    26" Schwinn black front wheel with quickrelease axle
    26" Shimano HD rear wheel with quickrelease axle

    Cheapo standard bike seat

    RST rear monoshock

    All I have so far. If all goes well it will have an 80cc China smoker and a SBP gearbox by December, and maybe an aftermarket tank if I can get some more cash. It'll be an allweather, all times of day, all speed little machine. Makes me feel like I'm in the twenties working on the first ever motorcycles, particularly the fact that we have seperate engines and transmissions on these things. .bld.

    Twowheel, Welcome. Looks Like You Will Have A Fine Mab. Dual Suspension Is Great. Not Easy To Find The One`s That Will Work With In Frame Motor. Ron . .cvlt1

    Thanks for the welcome. More pics, this time of the detail. And one of my Kawi motorcycle for good measure.
