    Here is mine, taking much longer than expected. Maybe start a build thread on this? New to forums so not sure if I'm uploading images right..

    Looks nice. A build thread would be great to document what parts worked for you or you could post your completed bike here.

    I am using the new GT2A-150 frame with disc brake mount that takes wider tires.
    In this case 3" Kenda Flame tires.

    HS 144F-1G 53cc pull start 4-stroke engine with enhanced flow exhaust, SBP high flow air cleaner, and NGK Iridium spark plug.

    Exclusive 10G ‘long shaft’ belt drive transfer case with right side carrier bearing base and bearing supported centrifugal force automatic clutch bell and freewheel 100T output pulley for 5:1 gear reduction and easy `engine off` pedaling.

    SBP bottom bracket with dual freewheel sprockets for direct connection of transfer to #410 single speed chains to allow pedals to stay in place under engine power.

    Strurmey Archer SK-RK3 3-speed internal shifting hub.

    Independent front and rear 160mm disc brakes on 24 inch wheels with 26x3 inch Kenda Flame tires.

    This is my second build on the GT2A-150 frame.

    An update on my Indian tribute, changed the mountain bike fork for a springer fork and added the Cream colored Fat Franks, rides much smoother.

    Nice upgrades, but whats up with that huge tensioner plate?
    It just really looks out of place and temped in is all.

    I've read about the standard chain tensioner working loose and turning into the spokes. The plate I installed was recommended by a number of members on the board and is certainly beefy and I am confident it will not move. Safety first.

    Well here is my build which started about 2 years ago. Slowly but surely pieced everything together. I purchased all parts from the various MB vendors on the net.

    Some of the parts include:
    Phantom Headlight
    Phantom exhaust pipe(cool but loud as ****)
    Brooks saddle
    Solid steel layback post
    11g spokes wide board track rims
    90mm front drum brake
    MM spoket adapter
    Monark Type Springer Disk Fork for tires up to 2.75"
    Frame was powder coated black satin
    Old school Lucky Brand mirror

    Norm at VMB basically put the whole thing together for me. He was able to bypass the ugly chain tensioner as well. The bikes runs perfect. Tops out around 28 but cruises nice at 20-21..bf.

    Wow nice rides! I think i'am going to do a 4 stroke build next on the skyhawk gta-150 frame. And hopefully with KCVAIL's 10 G jackshaft trans.! I like his builds thay are slick!
    I was just wondering what your 4 stroke top speeds with and without the jackshaft?????

    Thanks Robbie ;-}

    A ~50cc direct drive will do ~32mph, with gears ~40+ depending on your gears overdrive ratio, I have flitered with 50 tucked in, but it's not all about top speed...
    It's more about the low gears that will launch you off the line from a dead stop like a frigg'n slingshot and handling hills where they really shine ;-}
