My Schwinn Skyliner, which took 2 months to build because the jackshaft instructions were wrong.
sweet looks good. how did you like doing a jackshaft for the first time?
I waited 2 months before zb put the correct instructions up, it was a pita! I'm almost ready to build another lol!
Welcome to the forum Dr.8820! I had that same bike it was my first go at these motorized Jewels. Loved the J Shaft kit had one too. How did ya do the front mount?
I used the extra engine spacer and cut the bolts and used the universal mount that came with the kit. I went thru a couple engine bolts, thank goodness ace hardware is close by . it was trial and error as these things usually are! please forgive me for lack of capitalization, I usually post from my phone .
Oh, thanks for the welcome !
I have a question: should petaling the bike with a jackshaft kit be really hard to petal? (trying to start the engine )
yes it wont start off of momentum from the rear wheel anymore you need to crank the sheet out of it
Thanks! I'm going to bypass building up my legs and just get a pull start lol! Does anyone know where to get one besides boygofast?
but if your legs are all beefy it will be a more effective stomping device when some punk tries to steal your bike someday
why dont you want to get anything from bgf? pirate cycles has them but you gotta make sure your crank arm clears. If the arm passes the cover on the ignition side chances are it wont work I had that issue
as with these china girls, something was broken out the box, the fuel filter on the petcock. i ordered one from bgf and my account was randomly flagged by paypal and i had to answer some security questions, but it still wouldn't let me on. i emailed bgf about it as well as paypal, bgf never responded but had ebay put a strike for non-payment. i bought the pull start from lucky early bird, but i think they're the same folks....oh well! while waiting, i changed the rims and tires, and added different handlebars...which of course means i have to re-wire everything .....i'll post pics in the morning .
Just putting this in here. If you were confused or wondering what it's like to start a bike with the shift kit, here's my ride.

yes bgf and leb are the same folks..
thanks for the video bro
...and wouldn't you know, i had to file a paypal dispute with l.e.b. because they delivered the pull start to the wrong address!!
I want to build a bike with the jackshaft kit but something is saying it's not for me right now. With that and the right mods my mountain bike would be like a 65cc dirt bike and I think I'd snap the frame from jumping
I decided to go with single speed cruiser for my first build. I will post project pics in the near future.
I tried using my mountain bike (the one in the video I posted earlier) on some hills and such and the engine would have a hard time trying to stay alive. I don't know if it was the engine or the carb but it wasn't getting enough gas to it when I would roll up and down, so I quit trying to do that lol!
Well, I can't do business with the Rico group aka boygofast and luckyearlybird.....does anyone know where I can get a pull start from?

I can't make a promise on quality. Also, you don't need the filter in the petcock, it makes things worse. Mine clogged so I yanked it with pliers. ran like a dream afterword
My filter fell apart and the petcock kept clogged up over and over. Would not work right until I got a pet cock with bigger passages to it.
