Looks great! You have an oven big enough for the frame!?


I wish I did! But I do have a buddy that does so I had to use phone a friend
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Rust and patina is so 90s.


I left some of the motor brackets raw instead of powder coating them just for you buddy

Well there ya go! Buttoned up a few loose ends this morning like adding my year matching license plate and fixing the oil leak around the wire grommet on the stator cover with some RTV. Checked the tire pressure and added the cotter pin for the rear axle before I forgot! She started right up. After a couple of passes I found out with a plug chop that it was running pretty rich so I dropped down the main jet and ended up at a 140. Screams like a bat out of hell! It stops well, starts well, all electrics are working, and overall I’m pretty well pleased with the finished product. Super fun bike! As small and light as it is, it feels like a bicycle with a motor. The ride is actually pretty plush for a hardtail. I’m calling this one a win!
