    I got some work done today! I trimmed down the tank,cut and moved the petcock from the rear to the front,and patched the hole where cut it out. I think it looks a lot better this way. I put the sprocket on the wheel and im changing the motor mounts so it all jives together.The pipe came in and Im going to cut and reweld the flange so I can clock it where I want it,They come ran close to the motor for crank clearence but I want to run it out side the deck so ill cut it and make it work. 8) :mrgreen: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Wow now that's doing it right. If it's not already running, you are going to be stoked when you ride it the first time.

    Well I got everything mounted and ready for its maiden voyage and FAILURE!!!! MY gas tank leaks like crazy and when I popped the clutch and it came to life it folded my motor mount :oops: :roll: So back to the drawing board,gotta weld or braze the tank and build a thicker motor mount!!!My dad always said failure is worth it if you can learn from it!

    This after noon I figured I would get a little body work done....Since the fenders got dented and need a repaint I thought I would go ahead and add 8" to the front fender,make it match the rear ya know...I should have done this the first time![​IMG][​IMG]

    Dunno if that tailpipe gets too hot, but I would wrap it just in case your kids get close to it (I know you´re a big tough man who dosent get burns :roll: :wink: )

    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "tribute to Ed Roth" Gettin a 80cc Motor

    Thanks Fellas ,I like the fenders raw also.I got another rear one so I might stretch the rear to a tail dragger,or longer anyways.I will probably paint them the same green and black out the motor with ceramic black.My tank came in today and I put on a fitting decal !Now I just need time to finish all the loose ends..[​IMG]
