    What I did with Flexy was add jam nuts for every bolt.

    Never seen anyone call you Ren before, but I do see a resemblance now. How is The Stimpy Man doing?

    Thanks ya'll. I'm getting my final pics in order now.
    This has been fun and a great way to get this bike built that would otherwise be in separate pieces right now if it weren't for RatRodBikes.:D

    And my pick for winner is...
    Seriously this thing turned out so cool, the attention to detail is mind blowing, and it's functional, and motorized...what? You come by your title rightly Ren.

    This build turned out as cool as a pair of wrap-around shades! I'm stunned.

    I don't know if you could call her a poor mans whizzer,by the time you add up cost of tires,motor etc + the labor + design,and hours,she would become of value...
    Well built like always.Love the patina and the chain guard RM.
    Buzzard looks like it's been pulled out from a barn also...
    Did you go for a spin yet?

    Only by pedal power so far.
    I just picked up some 2 cycle oil this morning and am planning to ride it this afternoon! If all goes well, I'll try to post a video!

    It's officially a motorbike!:D

    I didn't think that I would make it by the deadline, but we had one more day than I first thought! What a great feeling when it fired up for the first time! I can finally rest now. :happy:
