guy bought a kit & couldn't build it onto his bike - came back and traded in the kit & bike for one that I had built & ready to run

I built his over the next few days and the pedal hit the motor by about 1/4 inch. Couldn't get the crank off with several pullers & hammers I had, so did about 3/8 inch of grinding on the bike, followed by well over an hour filing, sanding and polishing to get a good looking surface. Next day I noticed rear rim was a bit off and got out a spoke wrench to true it up. While putting spoke wrench away, I saw next to it on the shelf the expensive multi - tool I had bought last year just to pull cranks of that type. Could of had it off and finished in 1/2 hour instead of the several hours it took bending under the bike.

Holy Smoke!
Was the bike in your garage?
I'm teed off, just thinking about it.

no, the build bench is in back yard so I can run motors stationary - guess I'll have to attach a chain & padlock to it
