Hi Pablo,

Nice Ride.....I don't believe that kickstand I mentioned in another post will work because of where your rear brake is....I am not sure where I saw it, but I believe there is a kickstand that is sold that is bolted onto the rear axle or rear stay itself.

Hope this helps....Have fun in your build!

Hey Pablo, can you lower your front derailluer about a 1/4'' so your engine will tilt down in the back? Looks like it just needs a little bit.

Good eye - I agree if I left the engine there it would be too steeply angled. I had just left it there for the photo.

I'm unable to move the derailleur, but if you look at this view:

I was able to mount the engine about 1/2" lower on the seat tube than shown above by joggling with minimal modifications. My buddy said I would lose the front derailleur function, or rather it would get in the way, and I would have to remove it. So far so good, but I need to do just a little minor cutting and grinding so the change arm will clear the engine mount stud to allow the derailleur to go into the smallest front gear ring.
