    Awesome bike, Im doing a similar set up with thick bricks and a manic mechanic Hub-sprocket set up.

    Curious how did you off set the motor and chain so it would not rub on the tires?

    That's a great build, I like it! I'm curious about the chain tension modification as well. Tank is a great Can build! I bet the tires really do make a difference. I used 26" moped tires which have a way different feel to the bike tires that I had on previously.

    So you used the 24" Cranbrook. Im using a 26" Cranbrook with Husky 24" Heavy Duty Rims, with thick bricks. are the frames the same and just different size Rims??? or two different sized Frames?

    the reason i went with the 24 inch cranbrook was the rims fit the thick bricks for what some vendors want for two rims over 100 bucks!! i got the whole bike for 79 bucks!! yes the frame is smaller

    Ya, I bought husky 24" heavy duty rims and it was about 100 bucks. Do you have any close up pics of your front and rear engine mounts?

    Should have bought the 24" Cranny and used it for its parts than buying just rims haha. but then i wouldn't be able to use the cool Manic Mechanic Hub set up..
