    Jesuswon1 the chain tensioner is a shimano rear derallier. You should learn to weld, it is a very handy skill. I'll try to organise a vid some time.

    one thing that bike lacks that I can see from your last pics, it needs a much better locking system.
    I didn't spend half the time or money on my motor bike but my cable and lock will keep it safe when it is locked up. Can't say the same for that little chain or lock.

    Looks great.
    Have you thought about a chain gaurd?
    Wouldn't to see a thread about your leg or back being sliced from a broken chain. Don't mean to rain on your impresive build, but safety always rings a bell when are missing a very important componant. 8-0

    Rear mudgaurd installed.
    Also changed the rear sprocket from 36t to 28t, great top end now.
    Cheers,

    Sensational looking build. Are the frame components all steel?..... what kind of welder did you use?..

    So does the centrifugal clutch allow you to take off from a standstill, even with the 28t sprocket?

    Nomad, cheers, the frame is all steel and I used a MIG welder.
    jasonh, it does take off from a standstill with the 28t.
    The 20" x 4 1/4" rear tyre has a rolling diameter of 550mm compared to about 650mm for a 26" bike.
    This helps allow such a small rear sprocket.
    The bike is a little slow from the standstill, I wouldn't try starting off at the base of a really steep hill but once rolling it's great, the engine isn't screeming while cruising. It still pulls up hills once its cruising.
    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Ok Aussie, here it is.
    This is a 3 speed that I may install on the cruiser although at this stage I am happy with the single speed, less complicated too.
    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Very impressive build you have there.......I really like the way you added the swooping rails for the rear member.
    And that 3 speed jack shaft is the bomb!:D

    AussieJester is correct, I got the clutch and starter from Yong Xing Machine Zone.
    Thank you LordMaximo for your kind words.

    I love the bike. Very creative. Now that you are officially illegal in every state of the US, you can opt for a bigger motor without guilt. lol

    seriously very nice Bike MB.
