Hello,
This is my first build. I got a Nel Lusso from Walmart and a Huashengtai Motorized bike kit.
Any help or input will be much appreciated.

Here are some photos of the bike and the kit opened but still in the box.

I know you've probably heard or read this but watch the fenders, they can break the brackets, some here have had some bad crashes as a result. I see you have a guard on duty watching over everything.

I have one bike built with a Huffy and the Huasheng 4 stroke motor. It turned out nice. Make sure you completely disassemble the bike and clean and regrease everything, these bikes are pretty dry on grease from the factory. Probably OK for pedaling around but not enough grease when your moving fast motorized.

Ok so I got the 3 piece crank with wide shaft so my pedals don't hit the 4 stroke motor. The sprocket on the crank looks like it got a little bent during shipping. My chain kept coming off, I had to hand bend it to straighten it out, easy fix I guess. Also had to get a pair of $10.00 9/16 sized pedals at, my local bike shop, because the stock pedals were just a little to small.

I guess I should explain some of the photos.

Looking at mounting the motor and boy do these bolts look cheap. The are a little dinged up like they have been already used. Love it, made in china right...

Pedals: SAE compared to Metric. Get better bolts for mounting. Take more pictures as you, should be a nice build when done..................Curt

Almost forgot, my Sprocket Clamp Adapter 40 tooth came in today very excited!! Saw a video on youtube and some post on this forum on the problems with spoke sprocket setup and decided to save myself the trouble. Went ahead and purchased the Sprocket Clamp Adapter, 415 heavy duty chain and 415 Chain Lock.

In the image I have a photo of the spoke sprocket setup that came with the kit on left and on the right the CNC 40 tooth sprocket and Clamp Adapter. I must say the sprocket that came with the kit is so much thinner and the 40 tooth sprocket just seemed to be much better made, so glad I got it!

Aloha Makakoa602!
Welcome to the club.
If you're from Hawaii, where are you at?

I'm watching your build.
It looks like you only have a rear coaster brake.

You NEED better brakes.
BEFORE you start riding your motorized bicycle.

Years ago, the rear coaster brake on my electric cruiser locked up going downhill by Radford High School.

It took me into a mean slide and totaled my rear wheel.

Good thing I had installed front v-brakes on the bike.

That's the number 1 priority.
Another option that will make the bike
more comfortable to ride is a front suspension fork.

Most suspension forks come with a disc brake.
Find a donor mountain bike. Get the fork, wheel, brakes, levers and handlebar.

The mountain bike's rear brake lever makes for a good throttle lever.

Have fun!

I agree, both of my bikes are single speed cruisers and I added front side pull brakes. Once on a ride a friend had his pedal chain come off at cruising speed, he looked like Fred Flintstone trying to stop at the next stop sign. I found that 96mm reach bmx brakes do a good job and work with the 2.125 tire.

I'm from Kailua but not living in Arizona about 10 years now.
Thanks for the info on the breaks, I actually already got front and rear hand brakes. Guy at the bike shop gave me a two for one since he only had silver and not black colored ones.
So basically I got like 3 brakes now. lol

My last post, I over tightened the bolt for the motor. Lucky for me I was able to use vice grips to unscrew it.

The Sprocket Clamp Adapter was very easy to put on> I originally left the Coaster Brake Arm off thinking I was going to use front and rear had brakes, but later I found out that Clamp Adapter pushed more towards the spoke the Coaster Brake Arm (or what ever you call it) did not hit anything at all, did not have to bend it.
