    I like two-stroke engines but after looking at the two pictures, I think the Briggs fills in the space better and you don’t have to deal with where to put the gas tank. All three of your color choices would look sharp. I’m not sure what hot wheels green looks like. If it’s a medium to dark metallic green... I like it. Nice project, those wheels are sweet!

    Thank you t555trailblazer. The wheels go to my KG industries bike and I'm using them until I get my Manco wheels back from powder coat. The green I chose is a medium heavy metallic green. I've been very busy planning and buying parts. I've been working on the frame as well. I had a bunch of brackets to remove and welded uip some damaged areas. None of this makes for very interesting for pictures. I still need to replace the rear axle tabs because the axle wore through and washers were welded in at some point. I've scraped the idea of either motor and decided on a 212cc predator. I'll update the thread as soon as I have something worthy of a photograph

    This is a seat bracket extension I guess, it killed me to do away with that kind of workmanship but I cut it off. I did away with the scrub brake to make way for the larger tires. I know what your thinking! What could he use that would be as awesome as a scrub brake? A drum brake of course. At least it will look better and will hopefully work better in wet conditions.

    The rear axle mounts are in rough shape. It looks like the wheel bearings seized and like most kids they didn't see it as a problem and kept riding. I finally got some time to work on the build today so I built a jig to locate the axle after I cut the old mounts off. I wouldn't use a wood jig for building a frame but it should work well enough for my purpose. I feel like a cave man using these methods but I can't justify spending a lot of time and money on a one time use jig. I ran out of time so I didn't to cut out the old mounts or weld in the new ones. I'm waiting on my wheels that are still at the powder coat shop.

    This what I had in mind for a color. It reminded me of a hot wheels car I had when I was a kid. I want to say it was a '67 firebird but who knows? The years cloud my memory blank, it could have been a mustang for all I know lol.
