    a lot to start a first build with but when you are done I believe you will really like what you build.

    Howdy Stache, welcome.

    Going slow is the way to go, for sure. Not only gets you better results, but way more fun. It really is fun, the building part. Can be very relaxing except for the pulling yer hair out parts, lol.

    Have fun and glad you joined us here on the funny pages.

    I just finished building the one in my profile picture.... Biggest issue is fitting a front end to that massive neck. I have put two different front ends on it. The springer in the picture, and it now has a triple clamp mountain bike front end on it... It is getting turned into a "dirt bike" with a 48 tooth rear sprocket from the 4 stroke kit..
    The way I fit the front end was easy to do, I used a dremel tool with a orange grinding stone, mounted the black cups into a vise, and went round & round the inside until the bearing cap I wanted to use fit the hole, then used the monark bearing cups, pushed down into the black stock ones used as a bushing... I had to re do it again to fit the 1 1/4 mountainbike front end, so yes, they will sand out that big... you'll probably burn through a couple of stones, just make sure to try to keep the opening as round as possible..

    hey madmanart, I just finished my first gt2a build. I learned a lot and I'm happy to assist you anytime, should you want it. Applying what I learned to a gt2a-s build. Almost done...
