    It's a noram cheetah it's very smooth I still pedal alittle on take off just to help with clutch life alittle. Also I have my eye on a rock shock for the rear but I just bought and gutted my first house so money is tight right now as is time

    I'd watch the engine side tensioner for wear. It really should be on the coast side of the driveline rather than the drive side.
    beautiful looking design. Very nice work!

    This is really nice. Congrats on your build. Can I ask what you painted your engine case with? How did you prep it? And is it holding up? I really like that. Thumbs up.

    It was painted with vht wrinkle black paint and all I did to prep it was give it a light scuff with scotch right pad and then wipe it down with a wax and Grease remover. The wrinkle paint is nice and doesn't require a self etch primer. It holds up great I did the side cover on my Ducati with the same paint and not one chip and that was like 3 years ago.

    Thanks for the tips. Again, thats really nice. Id like to do my 79cc Predator. Heres my build. Its not a racer or anything. Its a chopper/bobber cruiser. I fabricated it from scratch pretty much. Im getting close to being able to fire it up for the first time. The engine is tilted at 25 degrees. I wonder how oil level will have to be figured?

    Is it an optical illusion, or is your exhaust going in to the seat post?
