    ...my last bike got stolen, right after fine tuning the engine &adding bunch o upgrades! damned crackhed Houdini!

    Anyways, I'm startin a new project, and thought y'all'd like a peak @whats up my sleave this time...
    just got done fab'ing up a layback seatpost, re-upholstering the seat w/leather from an old jacket, as well as fab'in up the motor mount, and chain tensioner, both welded to frame then used "MIGHTY PUTTY" to clean 'er up a bit.
    moped tank on the way...next- home-made monarch style forks! :)
    ...should be in order: all together, the motor mount, chain idler- ENJOY!

    exactamundo!! -actually, had a pair of those bent springer forks, which look great on a pedal bike, but ride like sh*^ when motorized...learned that the hard way...these should be MUCH more stable!
    you can see the old bike in thread:
    finally here she is boys...
