this is my Jaguar,
I hope you like it :)
I have done many upgrades to it
front wheel is a sturmey-archer X-FD drum brake hub, alexrims double-wall rim
back wheel is a formula disc hub laced to rhyno-lite double-wall rim (my LBS called it 'bombproof' :D)
handlebars, trimmed 2" (each side)
severe set-back seatpost (I am 6'1", it fits me perfect now)
triple sprung seat
black springers
old school 'newsboy' rack
kenda flames front & rear (26x2.125)
custom 12v lighting front n rear

driveline - 70cc Livefast engine,custom bent exhaust (shoots it straight down,,,better for trailer passengers) rear sprocket is a 40 tooth with center cut out so I could mount it inside a rotor (see pics)

a couple more pics are here

Nice bike, I'm partial to jags. I moved my seat back too. Makes it more comfortable for my old bones.:D Now I just have to get a springer for the front end.......................

How did you guy's get the seat moved back? All of the laid back seat posts I can find so far have too small of a OD to tighten up in the frame.

try spookytooth...I think it cost me 7$ + shipping
because of the support, it does lift the seat pretty high...I am 6'1 and can't flatten both feet at a stop

Thanks, I found a solution that works ok for now. I cut the original seat post in half and then cut a slot in one end about 1.5 inches and used it as a bushing. Now a standard laid back seat post fit and tightened up fine. Moved the seat back and kept it lower, not as low as I would have liked but it will due for now.
