    Well after my share of fixing up old Bicycles and and a few mopeds and Mini Bikes, thought it was time I made my own. Seems like I have been looking at the engine kits on and off for over a decade. Started with a old mountain bike and some extra parts I had, going to try to get a vintage look on a budget. Got the kit from Boy Go Fast On EBAY, I hope it runs better than his service or his rear sprocket:eek:Just going to take my time building it. This is it early in the build.

    Welcome, nice and clean build. Here's what can suggest to help. When installing you rear sprocket grease up the bearings, after centering and starting the 9bolts&nuts number them opposite of each other. You'll have a torque pattern. Use a cordless drill&driver,10mm socket. Turn the clutch Down to #1 and run the torque pattern . Then bring the clutch up to #3 and do it again , and again until you feel your there. This is the fastest and most accurate way. However it to do this first, so you can put the wheel on the bike and check it for trueness by turning the upside-down and spin the wheel. I pray it run well . I bought first from him and it locked up 45 mins in. Good luck.
