So... I wanted to use as many original parts as I can, including the rims. I have a couple large sandblasting cabinets at work so usually rust isnít a problem.

What IS a problem is original tires on a wheel thatís been outside for forty years. These things are FUSED. I mean, they might as well be the same piece. I tried everything besides burning the rubber off. I can pull the split rims 4-5 inches apart, but the tire wonít give. Screwdrivers, tire spoons, razor blade, it doesnít matter.

So anyways, I bought new rims.


BTW, Milwaukee knows what they are doing. I was at Home Depot with a Ryobi impact wrench in my hand a couple years ago, on my way to check out, when I was approached by a gorgeous blond in a Milwaukee shirt. She was incredibly knowledgeable about her product and somehow convinced me to pay the extra $100 or so for the Milwaukee. Iíve never been so happy about dropping hundreds on a tool. Weird how that works

Donít judge me for the adaptors. Sometimes you gotta crack a few eggs to make an omelette

Yes, it's a virtual hell removing the tires from those fuckin rims.

 Did you see my build thread?

http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=74762.0

 I can tell you that the 140 is plenty! And even with my extended wheelbase and 12" wheels, it's still sketchy as hell!

Yes, your bike is part of my inspiration for this build. I'm keeping the ten inchers though...

I'll probably just get the 125... I like the blacked out look of the lifan anyways.

Did you send yours off to get mediablasted or dipped to get rid of all the interior frame rust?

 The guy who painted it sand blasted it but, surprisingly, it was pretty solid inside and out. No interior rust.

 I have a couple of luggage racks for the CT70. Because I used the extended swing arm, I had to tilt up the rear fender for clearance. That makes is extremely tight fitting a rear rack (which I really wanted for beer runs). If you keep the stock swing arm, I have a rack that fits.

Oh that sounds like fun. Talking about stupid ideas... I am pretty sure a small smog pump could be employed in a supercharger roler on one of these!  ;)

No need for that, there are bolt on kits!
