Hey guys, well i ordered this chopper on the weekend and got it the other day.
Its a cool bike but only 1 problem. The bottom of the forks where the axel goes isnt straight so the disc brake dosent work.
Im goin to see if there is anyway i can fix this.
Hope u like the pics.
( im not sure if i cant fix the front i might not put a motor on it)

Wow Brisbane, that chopper is the BOMB! Where did you find that? Is that a gas tank built into the frame? Did the sprocket come mounted on the wheel? WOW!! I LIKE!
EXCELLENT CHOICE!!! YOU ROCK!

hey smitty. I got the bike from a guy down in sydney. ( australia)
Naa it isnt a buitl in fuel tank but has the holes to mount a fuel tank. Yer the sprocket does come mounted onto the bak wheel.
Its also got a place where u can bolt the chain tentioner wheel.

How dose the new bik compare to the old . I couldnt be more displeased with the mountain bike I bought . The pedals broke 2km point. Flat tyre due to protruding spokes. Front tube is large (this bike was meant to be made for motorising) so standard air filter wont fit and needed to weld a mount. Cranks keep falling off. Suplied dynamo blew up within 2km , lucky I had a batery powered one aswell,derailers , gears chain and controllers are verry poor quality. Came with bent rear axle. front forks wont tighten up and lets not start with the front brakes. I do like the wheels they have thick spokes. I should have saved myself $50 on a cheaper more appropriate bike from BigW and a lot of time. Im also thinking of going back to 48cc.
