    Very nice build. Congratulations.
    The Jaguar is a good foundation for a motorized bicycle. It rides good as a pedal bike but add a strong engine and you have a sweet ride. I'd like to see what you did to address the front mount. The Jag requires a special one and everyone has their own ideas of the best way. Thanks for sharing the photos. Now, what are you going to do for an encore?

    that is a nice clean build.I am a newbie too, and thanks to this site I was able to build two really nice and smooth running bikes. A cruiser and a old school lowrider. I wish I had found this site before my first build, I'll tell you what my second build was alot more custom, but still alot easier with the knowledge that can be learned here. I have been still trying to figure out how I would change the plug wire. All I can see is that this one the boot only unscrews, and I can't find just a booy, only a whole plug wire and boot together, any tips anyone

    As for the front mount, I used a piece of 1" X 1" steel stock ( I copied the idea from member stults customs)

    For an encore...I'd say that would make one B**chin ride. With your skills it wouldn't be that hard. Keep us informed on your progress.
    Your front mount is nice. Clean and simple and that is the way to do it. I like the vinyl caps too. Have fun, ride safe.
