    this is my second 68.5cc build on a Schwinn Delmar
    things/mods i had to do :

    remove 3 links off chain with dremel
    enlarge sproket hole with dremel to fit over hub
    grind hub cover so it fits on sproket
    cut back fender (with dremel) so chain doesnt rub
    drill hole through center of tensioner and bar and put in a screw
    order a universal frame adapter
    paint engine black
    paint scrached up chain guard (from shipping)
    use alot of locktight

    heres some pictures

    I've ordered a Delmar from Wally, and I'm curious. did you need to bend the exhaust tube to make it fit?
    Thanks in advance.

    no need to bend..... loosen screws and push exhaust toward frame then tighten

    Nice build tf2psycho. Please post up bigger hi-res photos! I'd like to see your chain tensioner mod.
    I agree it's addictive. I screwed up and built mine with a suspect rear wheel and now I'm held up trying to get it built back up again.
